Boston Adventure! - Part 2:

It’s time for an adventure in Boston with my sister Sylvia! It all starts with traffic on 93 (as usual). Not anything exciting…

Sylvia was craving Korean food (as always) so we went to Allston to grab some dinner

We decided to go to Color Korean Restaurant. Unlike the restaurant’s name, the interior of Color had neutral tones. It was very warm and homey though.

We met up with one of Sylvia’s friends and ordered fried dumplings, ramen ddukbokki and dak gang jung (a chicken dish). Now, here are some food-porn shots:

Next we stopped by Infusions Tea Spa to grab some bubble tea. It wasn’t long until I finished my large caramel black milk tea :(

We parked near Boston Common and walked to Downtown to do a bit of shopping.

I’ve always wanted to try French macarons so we found a place called Cakeology near Downtown that had them. They also had an assortment of gourmet cupcakes.

We purchased our goods and headed to the Common to relax and eat. It was a very nice day out and a lot of Bostonians took advantage of it

I got two macarons: toffee and bubble gum, while Sylvia got a Boston creme pie cupcake. Her cupcake disappeared before I even got to taste it.

Our last destination was North Point Park, which is near the Museum of Science. I wanted to take some night shots of the Zakim Bridge!

It was still bright out so we hung out around the playground until the sun completely set. The sky was clear and the weather was warm, even as it got darker.

That’s all for now. Until next time!

Macaron Sweeterie: 

My sister, cousins, and I were lucky enough to visit the Macaron Sweeterie. It’s a quaint little shop in Lexington, MA that sells gelato, coffee, tea, and of course french macarons.

External image

The shop was small yet inviting, and the owner was very nice in helping us choose our macaron flavors.

External image

So many to choose from! Must try all of them!

We ended up purchasing a couple dozen macarons to give as gifts and to enjoy ourselves. I loved the packaging of their pastries! My favorite out of the bunch was the black currant. I always had an affinity for things that are fruity and tart :)
