When those of us living in and around Boston get hungry we almost always go east, and with good reason. There are countless great restaurants/food-stands in the city.
But if you go west, you can find some truly unique places where you can get a sort of country-comfort food that you simply won’t find in Boston.
So, for those Bostonians who never bother to venture west of Rt. 128 for food, I have four particularly special, delicious recommendations that are more than worth the drive.
1. Framingham Bakery Company (840 Waverly St, Framingham)
They make an unbelievable bakery-style pizza that is unlike any style of pizza I’ve ever had anywhere else. Resist the urge to heat it up – it’s meant to be eaten at room temperature or cold – trust me! Go buy a sheet of pizza, stick it in your fridge and feast throughout the week.
2. Out Post Farm (30 Prentice St., Holliston)
This is a classic New England farm that has been around for decades. They have all sorts of great food, but I’m going to recommend you stock up on some Frozen Turkey Pies. It’s just fresh turkey meat, gravy, and scrumptious, flakey crust. Everyone in your apartment building is going to gravitate towards your door when they smell it bubbling away in the oven.
3. Ma Glockner’s (151 Maple St, Bellingham)
Berched Chicken with Homemade Cinnamon Buns – words cannot describe…
4. Hot Dog Annie’s (244 Paxton St, Leicester)
I’m not some crazy hot dog person. I couldn’t care less about Coney Island, Nathan’s, or whatever. The BBQ hot dogs at Hot Dog Annie’s transcend all forms of tubed meat. This place is the furthest drive of my four recommendations, but it’s worth every $3 gallon of gas – seriously. If anyone out there knows what I’m talking about, back me up on this.
