We enjoyed the spectacular summer weather last weekend by spending some time in the Seaport District which was crowded with many people having the same idea. We stopped in to 111 East, a new restaurant on Fan Pier for a few appetizers and a delicious Hot Pot dinner.
The Duck Egg Rolls, Soy Duck with Cilantro Lime Aioli, pictured above were excellent and described by my dining companion as the best egg rolls he has ever had.
The Rosé sangria, made with sake, passion fruit and strawberry, was not too bad either!
The Crab Salad with King Crab, Crab Stick, Jicama, Jalapeño, Scallion, Wonton Chips, Spicy Aioli. Also excellent.
Then, of course, was the Hot Pot. We chose the Miso and Sczechuan broths. It comes with a great selection of vegetables and we took the scallops and shrimp for proteins.
Extremely fresh scallops boiled in a few moments to perfection. The shrimp was just as good.
Tiny bowls of Udon and Egg Noodles rounded out the dinner. The broths, the condiemts and all of the ingredients were excellent quality. Just superb.
The decor is artsy in this comfortable space with a crowd that ran the gamut from preppies and upper crust millenials to tourists and couples out on the town. The Seaport District really does have a New York City kind of vibe. Overall a great experience that we can't wait to try again.
