Taste of the South End 2013

Taste of the South EndAIDS Action deserves a lot of credit for hosting another successful Taste of the South End.  I’ve attended many tasting events put on by different neighborhoods and organizations and this annual event held in the South End remains my favorite.  The number and variety of food and drink is impressive, the crowd is always friendly and the money goes to such a worthy charity.

Taste of the South EndAs usual, there were some real stand outs, my favorite was the tuna tartare with soy and ginger served on cripsy wontons from Mistral. The tuna melted in the mouth and I had all I could do not to swipe one of the platters holding a dozen or more of these treats from their table.  Additionally, Myers + Chang’s served their restaurant’s popular salmon + honeycrisp apple tartare with spicy soy, spinach and sesame crisps; mental note to order it on my next visit there.

Taste of the South EndOn the sweeter side, PICCO wowed me for the second year in a row with their “adult float” which combines a fruit flavored lambic (this year was peach) poured over either vanilla or chocolate ice cream. Also adicting was The Gallows miniature fluffernutter pies which were conveniently next to PICCO.

In addition to eating great food and getting the opportunity to chat with friends, attendees find out about changes at neighborhood restaurants.  For example, did you know Estelle’s has started serving lunch on Saturdays and Aquitaine has a newly expanded lunch menu which they offer weekdays.
