With attempts to bring some sunshine and warmth to the cold Boston University area BurgerFi – the new burger-joint on campus – hails from Delray Beach Florida serving up a mix of meals, desserts, and libations in an environment suitable for both students and families.

Opened Monday thru Wednesday 11AM to 11PM and Thursday thru Sunday 11AM to 1AM BurgerFi pumps out healthier food options for their guest in an earth friendly environment much like a Shake Shack from the south with, “chairs that are made from recycled Coke bottles, tables made out of compressed recycled wood, and large fans that use 66% less electricity”. In addition they also maintain a low carbon footprint through other sustainable practices.

Prices for this new eatery vary from $5.57 to $9.97 for one of their signature burgers, including a veggie!  If your more creative they have a “Build Your Best Burger” option starting at $3.97 for a single-stack with toppings costing extra.  Next up are the Hot Dogs between $3.67 and $4.97.  Sides or “accessories” range from fries or onion  rings OR Both from $2.97 to $4.97.  Desserts consist of Frozen custards or Frozen Concretes.  You can have them in multiple ways starting with shakes at $4.47 to concretes at $5.57.  Beer prices vary, but wine is served by the glass at $4.97 or by the bottle at $19.97.

To be health conscious the restaurant listed clearly it’s calorie content for their guest on their menu.  I love it! No guessing here.

This new addition the Commonwealth Ave line of restaurants in Brighton was a refreshing burst of change for the area, giving customers more options on where they’d like to dine, and also making it possible to grab a beer without being in a bar atmosphere.

Wanting to start with the basics I ordered the BurgerFi Cheeseburger and Vanilla Frozen Custard with Carmel on top.  To step on the ‘wild side’ I tried out the Crispy Onion Rings with, get this, Parmesan Cheese and Herbs!

There was bit of a wait for my meal, but once out I wasted no time.  My double-decker Angus burger containing two slices of American Cheese, Lettuce, and BurgerFi Sauce was satisfying.  I LOVE the grill branding atop the bun.  I was able to eat the entire burger with ease, and that left me happy.  Next time I go I’m getting the Brisket Burger (double natural 28 day Dry Aged Ground Brisket, Swiss Cheese, Blue Cheese, Lettuce Pickles and BurgerFi® Sauce) or maybe a Chicago Style Dog (All-Natural Dog topped with Mustard, Neon Relish, Diced Onion, Tomato slices, Sport Peppers, Celery Salt, and a Pickle spear served on a Poppy Seed Bun) to remind me of my favorite city in America.

My frozen vanilla custard was quite yummy.  Smooth and creamy.

My FAVORITE takeaway from this meal however was indeed the crispy onion rings!  O.M.Gee!!!  True to it’s name, these crispy delights tasted like Funyuns Onion Flavored Ring Chips!  The Amazing difference being that I was eating REAL onions with massive flavor!  Heaven!  I MUST get a LARGE order next, even if it’s 980 calories in a serving.

Maybe next time I’ll get the Urban Fries from the “Secret Menu” that contains Parmesan and Herb Fries topped with Garlic Aioli.  The secret will be OUT if they top the onion rings and they might get swarmed and have to give up all their secrets.  But hey, it’s good for business, right? Xo!

Bubble T-Zone!!!

Free Wifi!  Bubble Tea!  Umm, YES!!!

Back in high school I would travel to Harvard Square Cambridge to get a yummy boba slushy from one of my favorite locations.  Thankfully, Bubble T-Zone opened up my graduation year (yup) and now I can go in my backyard for a treat.

Located in Dorchester since 2006, Bubble T-Zone is my convenient go to for the tapioca (bubble or boba) gummy snacks within my slushy or shake.  Open 6 days a week from 10:30am to 6:30pm, closed on Tuesdays, T-Zone offers, “a variety of beverages including shakes, slushes, smoothies and coffee” as stated on their website.  Slushes and Shakes are $3.25 while Smoothies are $3.50. They also offer special desserts like flan, whole coconut pudding, and coco-pandan waffle.  Specialty items are between $1.75 and $4.95.  Want something less complex? Ice cream and ice cream sundaes are available.

This cozy advanced coffee shop has a mini seating area, a tv, and did I mention free wifi?

I LOVE boba!  Of course you can go there and get a beverage without tapioca balls if it’s not your thing, but if you like living on the edge, give it a try.  They even have a stamp card; buy 8 get the 9th one free!

I’ve tried their Strawberry Slushy, an Avocado Shake (amazing!), and today I’m having a Mango Slushy with boba.  So refreshing.  I love that you not only see them making your slushy, but you also can watch the sealing process.  So cool.  Wish I could get one in my house.
