Wouldn’t that be fun, if a whole bunch of food bloggers did an eating crawl of Boston? Kind of like a pub crawl, but to try all different types of food? Hmmm. . . Yesterday I got to meet up with a few of my favorite Boston bloggers at Myers + Chang in the South End, undoubtedly one of my favorite places to eat because of its deliciousness, reasonable prices, and menu flexibility. They really offer a range of foods, lots of veggie items, and everything is incredibly fresh and tasty. For our 1:00 reservation, I met up with Caroline from Caroline Dines, Gina from Simply Life, Kelly from She Wears a Red Sox Cap, Kirsten from Tales from Two Cities, and Meg who often guest blogs for her sister on Blue Plate Special. We sat down and perused the dim sum menu, then started marking our choices. From pretty much any seat in the house, you can watch the busy cooks at work, and they are FAST!
We ended up ordering a bunch of different dishes and sharing, which was a lot of fun.
Sweet potato fritters with sriracha aioli and papaya slaw
Shitake mushroom and Chinese greens dumplings
Yummy lychee and prosecco cocktail
Five spice tofu and garlic chives
Crispy spring rolls
Kimchee pancakes. . . so good It was so much fun to have lunch with a group of people with similar interests. We talked about blogging, food, work, travel. Myers + Chang was a great location for such a meeting as it is laid back, and the family style service allows for lots of sharing and tasting. I am obviously obsessed with this place, and it was fun to introduce a group of foodies to another great Boston restaurant. Let’s do it again soon, ladies! Have you ever been to or hosted a blogger meetup in your area? I can not believe it, but I am about to meet hundreds of food bloggers in one place. Aaaaah!
