If you’ve been following my posts from the last couple of weeks, you know that me and my husband just returned from a vacation in Boston. Boston is rich in American history, with so many museums and historical sites to visit.
However, my favorite part of the trip was, to no one’s surprise, the food. Honestly, my favorite part of any vacation is the food. But the food in Boston was particularly spectacular.
If you’ve been to Boston, you could probably guess my favorite spot…Mike’s Pastry! It’s a huge tourist spot, famous for their amazing cannoli. They have about 20 different flavors, plus a whole selection of other amazing sweet treats. Typically, I stay away from their tourist hotspots because they never turn out to be that great.
But Mike’s Pastry really did live up to the hype. So much so that we went there twice! I tried 4 different flavors but two were tied for my favorite: chocolate-covered, which was perfectly simple with an added crunch from the chocolate-covered cannoli shell, and Amaretto, which was loaded with almond flavor and Amaretto liquor and stole my heart immediately after the first bite. If you’re ever in Boston, you HAVE to visit Mike’s Pastry.
One day, I will try to attempt my own cannoli at home – it’s been on the bucket list for years. But today, I want to focus on another Boston treat that I’ve been in love with since I learned about it on Food Network years ago. No, it’s not Boston creme pie. But instead, it’s the most amazing gooey breakfast treat I’ve ever seen: pecan sticky buns from Flour Bakery in Boston.
