IMG_9189My time in Boston was rather short this time so I only got to eat 2 real meals out. Click here for Meal Number One. Meal Number 2 for me was from Island Creek Oyster Bar. Island Creek has been a family favorite for a long time. I've been here for dinner many times, but I had never visited ICOB for brunch. I was excited to see what tasty brunch items they had that I had  yet to try!IMG_9188Raw oysters galore! How can you not drool looking at this masterpiece? Let me just say I really enjoyed the change of pace of brunch. There were no long lines and the restaurant was nice and quite, which is completely different from dinner time. IMG_9200First up on the brunch menu was the lobster omelette. I was expecting lobster to be really strange in an omelette, but it wasn't at all. I actually added ketchup and tabasco sauce on top. What a interesting combo!IMG_9202Lobster Roll is a must! Gotta stock up on them when in Boston!IMG_9195Even though it was brunch I still had to order a variety of different raw oysters from the oyster bar. It didn't seem appropriate to order oysters so early in the morning, but seriously did you see that beautiful display? IMG_9210Other than oysters, the specialty at Island Creek is definitely the fluffy Honey Buttermilk biscuits! Amazing! I have to get one every time I'm in town. How can you say no to carbs as delectable as this?IMG_9206Bacon!!!! I'm usually not a fan of sweet bacon treats, but this Brown Butter Bacon Donut was amazeballs! I want this for breakfast everyday!

After having a quick brunch, I ended up running some errands with my sister to get ready for my nephew's birthday party she was throwing him. In my family, party = food. So, we were off to make a few more food stops! IMG_9078In Boston, the place to go for pizza is Ernesto's Pizza in the North End. I really like their white pizza and the buffalo chicken flavors. We picked up a few of these pizzas for my nephew's birthday party. Next errand on the list was dessert!IMG_9091The birthday boy's cake was amazing. My sister ordered a custom Funfetti flavor cake from Lulu's Sweet Shoppe. IMG_9115Look at that cream cheese melting. Mmmm.... Are you drooling yet? The boy is one lucky kid!IMG_9095In addition to his Funfetti Cake, we also picked up an assortment of cupcakes to give the party people more variety!IMG_9113I called my Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcake. Mine! 

We had a great time with my nephew celebrating his birthday. Everyone enjoyed the food we can't wait until next year to do it all over again! Check out the places I ate at. Address and names below!
