BEST ICONIC FOOD IN BOSTON FOR LOCALS AND TOURISTS ALIKE

  1. Bartley's Burgers
    Get the Beyonce with onion rings or sweet Potato fries. Regular fries is a suckers pick.
  2. Gourmet Dumpling House
    Scallion pancakes, spicy longhorn beef and a safe pick (like eggplant with basil or Kung-pow chicken) is the perfect meal for 2-3. Related: do not doubt those scallion pancakes. Schezuan Fish is great but enormous, even if you get the small it should be split along four(!) people.
  3. Mikes Pasty
    They're adding one to Harvard Square!
  4. Lobsters, maybe? I dunno where.
  5. None of us eat baked beans.
