Conveniently located right across the street from Mike's is Modern Pastry. Modern offers fresh filled cannoli. You can choose a type of cannoli shell, filling and topping. In order to be consistent we ordered a plain shell with ricotta filling and chocolate chips.
Though both cannoli were very good, we both decided this was the winner. The shell was perfectly crisp and again didn't crumble when we bit into it. The biggest difference though was the filling. It was much lighter and not to sweet. Delicious.
After wandering around Cambridge for a while, and a enjoying a few beers at The Druid, we went to East Coast Grill for dinner. This corn and clam chowder was absolutely delicious. It was perfectly creamy with a little spicy bite and nice chunks of sweet potato.
East Coast Grill is known for its XXX spicy wings. I was a little afraid of the spice so we ordered them with a spicy rating of 7/10. I think we could have handled the 10 though. They had a nice kick but weren't, as the waitress warned, the spiciest thing I've ever eaten.
On our last day we took a drive out to Ipswich to go to the Clam Box. The fried clams were fresh and delicious. I had never had them before so I'm glad I got to try them but they weren't really my favorite.
