Boston = Food = North End "Little Italy" = Yum!

Just in case you were wondering, yes, food is always the most important part of a trip.
And let me tell you, we were not disappointed by Boston at all!

My friend Dora lives near Boston and she said while we were there we couldn't miss having a canolli from Mike's Pastry.

This pastry shop was so busy it was crazy and so much fun. You stepped up to the counter and told them what kind of canolli or other pastry  you wanted then boom, bam, boom they boxed it up for you tied it with baker's twine and you were on your way.

We headed to the water with our tasty treats to kick back relax and enjoy.

Oh boy did we ever enjoy!

We enjoyed a chocolate dipped and a pistachio canolli with a profiterole for a snack later.
We just might have gone back our last night there for seconds (chocolate filled and pistachio)
we just might have also
Picked up a giant caramel pecan brownie for the trek home the next day.

I think my favorite part was carrying the box around because we got so much attention.
"Mike's Pastry!? Where's that"
"Mike's Pastry!? Did you bring some for me?"
"Mike's Pastry!? If you give me what's in the box your flight's free."
"Mike's Pastry!? Mmmm"
Check out their web site. You can totally order cannoli and have it shipped to you!

Dora also recommended Regina's Pizza  also tasty! 

Our last night in Boston we decided to have pasta (because we hadn't yet). As we were walking through Little Italy MDH asked a man setting by his front door what was the best restaurant and the guy recommended LoConte's.
It was off the main tourist route so it was a little less busy and the food was Oh So Good.
I highly recommend the Tortellini Pesto.
MDH also enjoyed his Shrimp Marinara.
The bruschetta wasn't too shabby either.
The only bad thing was we didn't have a refrigerator in our room and so we couldn't save our leftovers. 
Sad, sad, sad.
I think I'll be dreaming of that pesto and the cannoli for years to come.
