Signature Flavors of Boston

No matter what city you’re traveling to, each one is famous for certain kinds of foods or has a specialty dish that it’s known for. Other cities may try and replicate the famous foods, but everyone knows they taste the best when eaten in their native city.

Boston is no different. When you travel to the capital of Massachusetts, there are six foods you should sample. But in order to truly enjoy Boston’s best, you must taste each of these foods at a specific place.
