Event Recap: A Tasty Lunch Meet-Up

I work in the Longwood Medical Area, and lunch options range from fast food to...more fast food. Kind of disappointing. I recently met Kerstin from Cake, Batter, and Bowl - turns out we work on the same floor! - and she knew that Shannon from Tri to Cook also works in the neighborhood, so we planned a lunch expedition to Tasty Burger, a new-ish burger joint nearby in the Fenway area, for December 3rd. Some other bloggers' schedules permitted them to join us on this bitterly cold day as well: Brian (The Gringo Chapin), Penny and Ed (BostonZest), Molly (Cheap Beets), and Elina (Healthy and Sane and Russian Bites).

Hot sauce on the table = thumbs up from me!

Elina (Healthy and Sane, Russian Bites), Penny and Ed (BostonZest)
50/50 Fries and Rings: Both delicious!
My burger, the Big Kahuna, with pineapple, grilled red onion, and teriyaki sauce. A common complaint was the soggy buns; these buns just aren't made to withstand saucy toppings.
Group shot - we're all very full!
It was wonderful to see Molly and Kerstin again and to meet Brian, Shannon, Elina, Penny, and Ed for the first time! Do you work in the Longwood or Fenway area, or does your schedule permit you to get to this area for a weekday lunch? Leave a comment here or email me - we might plan another outing soon!

Be sure to check out Penny and Ed's recap as well!
