5 Reasons why Boston is a Shithole if You're a Food Lover...

1. The Bostonian accent is probably the most ignorant sounding accent in the world, barely edging out the Australian.
2. Drunk Bostonians ARE the most ignorant people in the world, and there's no shortage of them at all hours of the day.
3. The vendors at the Farmer's Market are incredibly racist, and will start yelling at you if you even look at their produce in the wrong way...let alone try to get some sense of it's freshness/quality. You will then experience 1 and 2, above.
4. A restaurant that you actually have to DRIVE to get to? Good luck getting there...or anywhere ever again.
5. The only good place for breakfast in Boston is Dunkin' Donuts. That isn't a compliment to Dunkin' Donuts.

It ain't all bad I suppose. The Quincy market is a lot of fun, and the lobster at Todd English's Kingfish Hall was well worth the wait. It's served lobster boil style, with steamers, potatoes, kielbasa, corn on the cob, and a slice of blueberry pound cake which is surprisingly tasty after soaking up all the butter that's been sloshing around on the plate. Still, the overall experience in the city leaves a bad taste in the mouth.
