We Ate The Most Iconic Foods In Boston On A $50 Budget


  1. She would have had more money if she opted out of the bread bowl or the lobster roll. Too filling for both at the same time.

  2. You eat so many iconic foods in one day and then complain that ur budget fell short because these foods are expensive. Girl, please!

  3. Boston Food in $50 or less:

    – Classic jumbo- egg and cheese sandwich and broadsheet coffee from Bagelsaurus-$10
    – Boston cream pie and hot chocolate at Flour Bakery-$10

    – Chili dog and Raspberry Lime Rickey at Sullivan’s on Castle Island-$10
    – Massive slice of pizza and a drink at Ernesto’s Pizzeria $10

    – Sam Adams tour and with a pint included in a commemorative glass-$10
    – A flight of beers at Aeronaut Brewing Co. $10

    – Fish and chips with french fries and a cup of clam chowder at Courthouse seafood for $12
    – House hand-pulled noodle soup at Gene’s Chinese Flatbread Cafe $10

    After dinner outing:

    Ice cream at Honeycomb creamery under $10
    A house cocktail and live Irish music at the Burren in Somervile $10

  4. Every culinary channel does Massachusetts WRONG.
    Super Beef, 3-way, on an onion roll.
    That’s Massachusetts.

  5. How do you get a beer and hot dog at a BALLPARK and then rate Boston based on its affordability? Who sponsors this garbage?

  6. Having come from a few "Bostonians" who relocated to the Midwest some 60 years ago, the one thing I do know is Boston prices are out of its ass.

  7. Boston is famous for Harvard Companions at everyday rate。
    Smart Lovers, Intelligent Conversations。

    I Prefer Someone With No Background in Politics。 I Wish For Intelligent Dialogues on Some Other Topics。

    Such As Why American Bible is so
    remarkably blessed with very high Prediction Accuracy。

    Are Marxians Already Living on Earth,Disguising as humans。 What Earthly Religion They Prefer。

  8. No one in their right mind would go and spend 10.50 on beer. Also… if you are truly on a 50 dollar budget, you would not go to a baseball game.

  9. Lobster Rolls aren't cheap! And you didn't go to any of the real neighborhoods. Bova is way better than Mike's and Modern. Fenway isn't affordable

  10. the best thing you can do is ask a local to help you, I barely go to Boston but luckily my cousins are native Bostonians so I get all the good spots that don't destroy my wallet

  11. I work in the area, and she got the worst lobster roll over there at Boston and Maine Fish company. The clam Chowder from the Boston Chowder is delicious.

  12. lobster roll, chowder, cannoli are maybe quintessential new england experience so I'm ok with that; but, the beer and hotdog was the most unnecessary food purchase

  13. They got a Samuel Addams Bar at Faneuil Hall now. Looking forward to this summer when things go back to normal hopefully.

  14. Bova Bakery on Salem St. has the best cannoli. Mikes aren't as fresh, they are pre made and sitting in the displays getting soggy. Should have gone to Regina's whilst in the North End to have authentic Italian and the best pizza from the oldest pizzeria in the U.S. And maybe just A lobster roll OR a giant bowl of chowder. And to have tried an appetizer of oysters at Union Oyster House with a Sam Adams at a reasonable price. Seems you were a bit spendthrift-y with your $50 That's my 2 cents' worth.

  15. Ur on a budget yet you went to Quincy Market? You made a mistake by doing that because u literally just went to one of the biggest tourist place in Boston

  16. This was so sad. I'm sorry but it was. No time was taken out to find good food for a reasonable price. Smh 🤨

  17. $50 won't get you far at Quincy market
    You should have gone to the Union Oyster House and had a lobster dinner
