Union Oyster House, Boston

I find my carnivore of a boyfriend’s personal food mantra fascinating: if he has to fight with his food (pretty much anything that goes beyond slicing with a knife/picking up with a fork), he doesn’t want it. Case in point — his idea of a regular, fail-safe meal: entrecote. With that being said, it’s a good thing he’s very open to trying new culinary delights otherwise, I wouldn’t know what to do with myself if I were to restrict to his usual meat-rich, dietary preferences.  Y’all know me… I like to have a bit of a balance from all food groups: meat, vegetables, carbs, seafood, etc.

Speaking of seafood, a trip to this part of the USA (aka New England) wouldn’t be complete without paying homage to its glorious seafood — oysters, clams, lobsters, etc. We’ve been eyeing this place called “Union Oyster House” (after passing by it almost every day) so we went there yesterday for lunch.

Click click click!

We started off with a dozen oysters, followed by clam chowder. We shared fried calamari as well as a medium lobster. Again, the bf didn’t want to “fight” for his food so our lobster came prepared, cooked with breadcrumbs and some sauce, served with fries and this insane cup of melted butter which I avoided at all costs. I almost got a heart attack just by looking at it.

That’s all!


  1. I can understand your boyfriend’s concern, no one wants to look clumsy eating food when they’re out, fighting food is the right way to describe it. One needs to practice a lot, otherwise it can be so awkward.

  2. Being from Boston and living in the Back Bay on Newbury Street. And also reading your blog fairly often, it feels kind of odd and exciting that you are seeing the things I have seen every day for years.
    Union Oyster house is a staple and a place I have gone to with my grandparents since birth!

  3. Bryanboy, how much longer are you in Boston for? Want to come to the Museum of Science [where I work?]. I’ll get you and the bf Omni tickets <3
    Exciting that you're here! I'm glad you've been loving our little city :)
    PS- Get him a donut already!

    Amazing fashion sense! So I gather you are also blind? Why else would anyone where dark shades indoors? In most countries it is considered quite rude to not be able to see a persons’ eyes when communicating.
    I am sure you have a good reason. Eye infection? Sty? Pink eye?
