The poutine was below average. Gravy was thin and lacked flavor. The cheese wasn’t great either. The only thing I liked was the bacon bits on it. My friend had the fried chicken sandwich that was over-cooked and dry. I was embarrassed that I chose...More

Went on recommendation and it was a good, quick lunch. It's a tiny restaurant with few tables so you kind of have to dine and dash. The fries were delicious as were the sauces. We also tried a Frik sausage and apple-cabbage slaw. Good, fresh...More

Hi, bad welcome and bad food: selling the Frik at 9 usd whereas the original is at 2 euros. Prefer any street food vendor.

Busy place, but worth the wait. Fresh Belgian style fries topped with cheese curds and mushroom gravy. Finish off with authentic Belgian waffles. Amazing.

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
