If you're wondering where to go, look no further than Boston's own "Little Saigon" located in the heart of Dorchester's Fields Corner neighborhood where Vietnamese restaurants, shops, and businesses abound.
My safari took me to Pho 2000 (198 Adams Street) where, according to rumor, the best Pho in town is served. You can garnish your Pho with bean sprouts, freshly squeezed lime juice, thai basil, and cilantro. Other accompaniments include fish or Sriracha sauce. Pho 2000 is easily accessible via the Fields Corner T station (only a few blocks away). A 2-hour public parking lot is also located directly across the street.
While you're sampling Pho, try some of these other activities in Dorchester:
- My DOT Tour - visit historical spots around Dorchester including Fields Corner and the Municipal Building.
- Franklin Park - if you're really up for an adventure, head to Franklin Park for a stroll and picnic. If you're really feeling adventurous, get Vietnamese to go and eat in the park!
- The James Blake House - Visit the oldest house in the state of Massachusetts. I had no idea! It's a few T stops before Field's Corner.
