Boston, MA Edition: Sweet Cheeks Q

Sweet CheeksI had just gotten off the plane in Boston, when Kaitlynn ushered us to Sweet Cheeks - a restaurant I missed out on during my last visit to Boston. The owner of Sweet Cheeks is Tiffani Faison, a finalist on the first season of Bravo's reality show, Top Chef. She was a kickass competitor on the show, so I was excited to eat at her restaurant.

Apparently everyone else was, too, because the wait was well over an hour. BUT, to-go orders were going much quicker, so it was a no-brainer. I ordered a heritage breed pulled pork sandwich, which is served with pickles and onions. But I also added on one cold scoop and one hot scoop - potato salad and mac-n-cheese.

This was a ton of food. I had my whole meal, plus Kaitlynn ordered a bucket of biscuits with honey butter. The biscuits are so good. They're huge, flaky and the honey butter adds a bit of sweetness. They are truly heavenly biscuits.

Sweet CheeksAs for the actual plate of food, it was delicious. The pulled pork sandwich was super tender and flavorful, the cool potato salad was creamy, and the mac-n-cheese was perfectly cheesy with a nice crunchy top.

Sweet CheeksThree bbq sauces accompanied the meal: a Carolina-style vinegar, a regular sweet/smokey sauce, and a more spicy version. I went mostly for the regular and mixed it up with the spicier version.

Sweet CheeksThis was very, very good. Boston isn't necessarily the place I would think of food BBQ or comfort food, but they sure did it well.
