Union Oyster House, Boston, MA

After an afternoon biometrics appointment with the USCIS, we decided to stroll down the historic North End neighborhood, aka the "Little Italy" of Boston.

Though it's already March, the weather here is still a little chilly. We then stop by for a nice warm bowl of clam chowder:

And the perfect match for a quick afternoon high tea, half a dozen of local oysters from the Cape:

They are fat, meaty, and briny, at $14.95 for half a dozen. I still prefer the sweeter, cleaner tastes of Kumamoto Oysters of the West.

A funny incident happened at the Oyster House. Just as our server finished shucking our oysters and served it to us, we noticed he just light a bunch of matches and blew it off. My assumption was he just passed gas on the spot... but anyone has any ideas why he did that? Comment here and best answer here will be receive a 1826 Union Oyster House coaster, as pictured in the very top.

Of course, we will not forgot the all famous Mike's Pastry Cannoli's and a cup of Latte Cappucino!!

Life is good when you gotta take half a day off with your love and stroll around lovely neighborhood!
