Modern Pastry (Boston)

So, the fight is between Modern Pastry and Mike's Pastry. Apparently, Mike Pastry always wins, judging from the queue. But I've eaten at both, and I say, I prefer Modern Pastry!

Why I like the canolis better here than Mike Pastry is because it's smaller- it's easier to eat, and makes you feel less guilty about the calories that you're going to put on anyway (self delusion, I know). I tried the one with the chocolate filling. I like how it's thin and crisp. And somehow the amount of chocolate filling was just right. It didn't make me feel like it was too much, or too little.

While I suppose it's a must try since it's in North End (Little Italy) and everybody raves about cannolis, you ought to take a bite of this too. But honestly, I would rather be eating some good tiramisu in some other restaurant in North End. Nice to try, just for the experience of tasting something new!

Rating: 4/5
