Food Porn Friday | The Most Interesting Bun In The World

The sight of her brings a grown man to tears. Vegans fear her. She’s flaky, but never stale. Her glaze alone has ended world wars. She stays fresh for over a week, but no one has ever waited that long to eat her. Her ingredients are hand picked by gods. After she comes out of the oven, the baker thanks her. She is…the most interesting bun in the world. I don’t always eat pastries, but when I do, I go … read more

Food Porn Friday | Ted’s Jumbo Red Hots | Buffalo, NY

In light of the upcoming holiday where you will undoubtedly be eating at least five hot dogs (per day), I thought it would be appropriate to share a recent experience from none other than Buffalo, NY. Whaaaaat? I visited The Buff (as I refer to it) for the first time a few weeks ago, and my first thought was wings. Obviously, right? Wrong. According to my friends, Ted’s Hot Dogs is much higher on the eating agenda than wings. Apparently transplanted Buffalonians living around … read more

Food Porn Friday | Mexican Roll | Fin’s Beacon Hill

Beacon Hill residents, our prayers have been answered. The best sushi in the city (and by this I mean affordable everyday sushi) has opened on Cambridge Street in our ‘hood. Fin’s is owned by the same crew that run my beloved Symphony Sushi. The sign has been tormenting me for months and FINALLY they opened their doors this past Tuesday. The menu is exactly the same as Symphony and other locations of Fin’s, which is totally fine by me. I’ve … read more

Food Porn Friday | Prosciutto di Parma

A wise woman once said, “if everything came wrapped in prosciutto, we would undoubtedly achieve world peace.” She was right, and we would…BUT sometimes you just have to save yourself the effort and eat the prosciutto on its own. During Thanksgiving, my cousin came down from New York with a pound of the best proscuit this world has to offer, proscuitto di Parma — sliced as thin as humanly possible. It’s one of the few ingredients in the world that is worthy of food porn … read more

Food Porn Friday | Mac ‘n’ Cheese At Silvertone AND a Cheesy Contest!

Ello, ello. Last night when I was at Silvertone, I came to the conclusion that I don’t focus enough time and energy on mac ‘n’ cheese. I always see it on menus and think things like “oh, I shouldn’t get that.. it’s too heavy, i’ll be too full” etc. etc. etc. The reality is, none of that matters. When mac ‘n’ cheese hits the table, forks come at it from every direction! No one person will ever eat too much, … read more

Food Porn Friday | Yankee Nachos | Dune Dog | Jupiter, FL

I’m in FL for the weekend for a family reunion, and when I arrived our first stop was Dune Dog in Jupiter, FL. They are famous for their fried fish sandwiches and crazy hot dogs, but the Yankee Nachos could not be more perfect for Food Porn Friday. Think regular chile cheese nachos with all the fixings, but with WAFFLE FRIES instead of tortilla chips. Yes, that exists, only in Florida though. I wonder why they call it Yankee? Do … read more

Food Porn Friday | BOOM Burger | Uburger

Uburger is my favorite fast food burger joint. Not only are the burgers delicious and cheap, but they use topping combinations that are way more fun than other local spots. Five Guys (who isn’t exactly a local competitor, but soon will be) is also a personal favorite cheap burger option, but their menu is boooring to the max — consisting only of plain hamburgers and cheeseburgers and the obvious bacon option. No offense Five Guys, I know your beef is … read more

Food Porn Friday | Ess-A-Bagel: Pwning Toasters Since 1976

When I was in NY a few weeks ago, my friend Jon took me to one of his favorite bagel spots in the city, Ess-a-Bagel. I was slightly hungover and starving to the point of extreme irritability, so I got a little discouraged when I saw that the line was out the door and over 20 people deep. He assured me that the line moves quickly because they don’t toast their bagels. In fact, they don’t even own a toaster. Ummm… … read more

Food Porn Friday | Cookie Dough Cupcake | Kick Ass Cupcakes

The SoWa Market has been killing it this year, both on the vintage clothing front, and the food truck front. I remember when the market first started with only a few art vendors and a couple food options, and now it has more art, more food, AND a farmer’s market, making it the best place to be in Boston on a Sunday. Last weekend when I was there, I saw the Kick Ass Cupcakes truck, and I couldn’t resist a cookie dough … read more

Food Porn Friday | Volcano Roll | Ginza

Today a co-worker and I went to Ginza for lunch. When I saw this bad boy on the menu I knew it was the perfect candidate for Food Porn Friday. It’s a spicy tuna roll, layered with sweet and spicy mayo, baked scallops, crabstick, shiitake and enoke mushrooms — dripping out of it, topped with flying fish roe. AKA explosion of awesome. I’d take that over lava any day. It was really heavy, all the different textures were a little … read more
