Cambridge Eating Tour Adventure

eating tour mapLast weekend, Mike I planned to spend some time poking around Cambridge. Naturally, “poking around” translated into “searching for food” and we ended up on an eating tour of sorts. I loved that our adventure took us to so many new places we had never even heard of before, AND since we walked the whole thing (almost 5 miles!) none of the calories counted ๐Ÿ˜‰ Here are some pictures from our adventure, followed by a list of the places we went to!DSC_0015Three words, five syllables: Bel.gian-waff.les-YO.

DSC_0003DSC_0028Who knew there was an entire store dedicated to honey? Who knew I liked honey? Revelation.DSC_0018PicMonkey CollageDSC_0031DSC_0040Couldn’t resist making Mike play model. #hipsterDSC_0043DSC_0044DSC_0053Vegetable samosas FTW. These were goooood.

Our last stop was at The Friendly Toast but they sat us in THE DARKEST corner of the whole restaurant so I didn’t snap any pics. We ordered this:

Then, we walked a million more miles back into Boston and I snapped a million more pics, which I’ll share another day, another time.ย DSC_0090

Cambridge Eating Tour Adventure

  1. Zinnekin’s – Belgian waffles in Harvard Square
  2. Follow the Honeyย – Just outside Harvard Square
  3. Dosa Factory – Indian food in Central Square
  4. Christina’s Homemade Ice Cream – Inman Square (right next door to Christina’s Spice and Specialty Foods, which has every spice and random baking supply you could imagine!)
  5. The Friendly Toast – Kendall Square

We didn’t stop at these places this time around, but here are a couple more of my favorite Cambridge eateries:

  • Flour – bakery in Central Square
  • Sweet – cupcakes in Harvard Square
  • Area Four – bakery/bar/pizza/etc. in Kendall Square
  • Bon Me – Vietnamese food in Kendall Square

    Next time you come back, you should try Life Alive or Veggie Galaxy! The veggie burgers at Veggie Galaxy are to die for.

    Have you been to the Bon Me restaurant yet?? I’m so excited to try it.

      Those both sound amaze!! I am always looking for a good veggie restaurant, so I will definitely have to come back and try. I’ve only been to the Bon Me truck, which I LOVE, but the restaurant looked just as cute and delicious!!

    Those waffles look amazing! I practically jumped out of my seat in school, but I kept my cool….after a mild yelp….

    Anyways, I’ve created an “online cookbook” of links to yummy stuff and all of it (except 2 links) are yours. Everything just looks SOOOOOO good. I discovered you after looking up PB Oreo cupcakes for homecoming. After clicking around, I realized this website is the best thing since online flute sheet music. I love it. A lot. It’s as good as life itself haha

      “the best thing since online flute sheet music”…perhaps one of my favorite comments I’ve ever received?? You’re so sweet! Wishing you the very best of luck with your baking (and flute playing!) ๐Ÿ™‚
