Every city needs a great diner and if you’re in Boston this is the one worth checking out! To the dismay of regulars the Galley was featured on Anthony Bourdain’s “No Reservations” which has made it a very popular place and with good reason! The service is awesome and the atmosphere friendly and old fashioned. I had the good fortune of having breakfast after a gig and it was incredible! The portions were huge, everything was fresh, and prices could not be beat. I had the corned beef hash, which has become the diner’s signature dish and was blown away by how good it was. I had a sweetness that was a perfect balance to the salty and unlike any other I have had before. Can’t wait till I am back in Bean Town and can go here again.
11 P St, South Boston, MA 02127
Rondo’s Sub Shop:
A fantastic sandwich shop in Southie, that was also featured by Anthony Bourdain. While I was a bit nervous going to Southie that I would come in contact with a gang of Whalberg wannabe tough guys, I was pleasantly surprised by how friendly both the staff and the locals were. I had a large Italian sub with the works for 7 bucks. It was very tasty and enough for 2 meals. I also tried some of they’re meatball sub after having recommended by a regular who even shared his fries with me. Can’t wait to go back to Rondo’s and try another on of the delicious subs.
