Double Chin Gave Me a Triple Chin
On this episode of Different Boston Restaurants Worth Trying: Double Chin. This aptly named restaurant in Chinatown was a big hit in my books (and that’s saying a lot, because I am PICKY). Now here’s the thing, I didn’t actually eat real dinner food here; I ate the more important course, dessert.
I was on google searching for “different/weird foods to try in Boston” as one does (or at least I’m hoping that I’m not the only one who does this…) and Double Chin popped up for it’s pretty strange selection of drinks, appetizers, and desserts. For the 21+ crowd, they have some fun looking drinks. The table next to mine was drinking out of a fish bowl that had Swedish Fish in it to give it that under the sea aesthetic and the next table over was drinking out of a light up juice pouch. Definitely fun to look at, my virgin strawberry pina colada (I’m still a baby) was served in a pineapple, and trust me it was so good that I could’ve had ten.
I had already eaten dinner that night so I did skip out on the appetizers, however, I did read the menu! They have “Spam fries” that are served in a Spam container and macaroni and cheese served in a skillet. The fishbowl drinkers got both of these appetizers and let me just say that they looked good, really good.
But enough with the grub that I didn’t eat, let’s get to what everyone really cares about here. For dessert I went for the cube toast. Cube toast is basically just french toast in the shape of a cube that’s filled with ice cream and toppings. I got the “Matcha Ma Call It” cube toast which came with green tea ice cream and toppings, such as fresh fruit, red bean, pocky, mochi, cereal and matcha milk. I honestly don’t think I even have words to describe how delicious this was. First off, it came out looking delicious and I may or may not have drooled just looking at it.
After cutting up a few pieces of the cube I took a big fork full of ice cream and french toast and savored it for as long as I possibly could before swallowing. A small note: the ice cream is REALLY cold, like, colder than ice cream normally is but totally worth it. The next few bites were pure bliss until I started getting full. But have no fear for that didn’t stop me, just slowed me down a bit. I was able to finish almost the whole thing (minus some of the french toast) but not alone, and I definitely wouldn’t have been able to make a dent by myself, because it was very filling. These delectable cube toasts go for whooping $16 but are worth every penny, so make sure to bring a friend or two if you want to be adventurous and try one.
