Like most people, I cling to my weekends with a kung fu grip because my work weeks are often pretty stressful. Friday nights, Saturdays and Sundays are meant for one thing and one thing only: having a good time. Some weekends that means traveling to see friends and family, others it means crashing on the couch and neglecting to get out of my pajamas for 48 hours straight. Weekends can also provide a great opportunity to explore new corners of the city and of course, eat.
A few weeks ago, my fiancé and I did just that. He brought me to SoWa (stands for South of Washington Street), an open market in the South End. The market has everything from art to clothing and most importantly, food. It brings in amazing gourmet food trucks, baked goods and local farmer’s produce. So naturally, I was in heaven and had luckily arrived with an empty stomach.
There are over 20 food trucks that come to SoWa, all offering something really unique. From BBQ to mexican to cupcakes, there is something for everyone. After surveying my options, I landed on the LOBSTA LOVE truck and am oh so happy that I did. I ordered the Lobster Mac & Cheese, which is made with Annie’s Organic Shells & White Cheddar Mac & Cheese, fresh lobster and lobster bisque. Each bite oozed with flavor and although it was rich I happily finished the whole thing. Sometimes you eat meals that are so satisfying you feel full the rest of the day and that’s exactly what happened to me on that day. I was truly elated from the food that I consumed.
The experience of SoWa is something I hope all Bostonians undergo at some point. It’s simply about a love for food and the arts, without any pretentiousness. If you don’t live in Boston, make a date with a food truck in your city the next time you have a free weekend. You certainly won’t regret it.
