    Get the heck out! You're coming me see me all the way from CA?! How long you gonna hang out here?
    I will be in Boston from Sept 24th ~ 29th.
    If I reserve hotel via conference website, it is only $209 per nite. Think that's good.
    I'll look at hotels in them areas. I am looking forward to going to Boston for the first time ever in my life! [​IMG]

    I fly into Dulles on the 21st and leave the 27th. It's a business trip, but I'll have time for fun. Boston is awesome. I took my first civilian job out there when I got out of the military. I moved back to CA in late 2011. You'll have a blast.

    I don't live in Boston, but my sister does. For a first time Boston visitor, I recommend a lobster roll from James Hook, a cannoli from Modern Pastry, and dumplings/hot noodle soup from any one of many restaurants in Chinatown.

    ALLLL of this.

    And consider getting a cannoli from Mike's Pastry too. Same street as Modern and all. Prepare for lines at James/Modern/Mike's tho. Long lines, but they move quickly.

    I want to do a lobster roll tour of the city and hit all these spots

    I sent him a long list of things to do slash places to see. And yeah, boston's a nice spot. Chinatown is my favorite place to get food.

    Pho pasteur and pho hua are good, as is dumpling cafe. I'm sure there's really good food like that in DC though.

    @ridethecliche You'd be surprised at the lack of quality Chinese/Asian in the DC Chinatown/Metro area.

    And yes @The Noodles , it's because you're Asian.

    There's also a really small Moroccan restaurant in central square that I love.

    Huh, weird. I figured DC would have good asian food. I've heard the ethiopian food there is amazing.

    Most of the good Asian food in the DC area is in the suburbs, consistent with the residential patterns of Asians who live in the area. VA suburbs for Vietnamese and Korean, MD suburbs for Chinese.

    To most Koreans, Korean restaurants sucks here. Americans say they're good though LOL. There is not a single Korean restaurant in D.C. but all are in VA suburbs. One weird thing is that the Vietnamese population really took a nosedive within the last ten years. Don't know where they all went.

    This non-Korean likes the Yellow Vendor food truck that operates in DC. :embar:

    Mandu is a Korean restaurant in DC. I ate there a long time ago and liked it. It appears to be doing quite well: Two locations and plans for a third. I suspect it may be less than authentic, however. Hopefully not as inauthentic as Ping Pong Dim Sum. :lol:

    Ah~ I forgot about Mandu. Us Koreans think that place sold out to Americans and don't sell authentic Korean food.

    If you guys are looking for great Cantonese/Szechuan food and are up for a drive go to Grace Garden in Odenton, MD right across from Ft. Meade. Don't order off the "Western" menu.
