1. Pizzeria Regina

For those who don’t want to brave the crowds at the original location of this very popular pizza joint, the takeaway stand in the food colonnade is an easy alternative. While it may not be as enjoyable as the original, and lacks the atmosphere, it’s a tasty option for Quincy Market. Grab a slice of pepperoni to sample the goods, and consider making the under-10 minute walk to the North End to try the real deal.

7. Boston Chowda Co.

Here you can have fun pronouncing “chowder” like some locals do. The clam chowder is surprisingly good for a tourist-packed takeaway joint. Rich, creamy, and chock full of clams, Boston Chowda is a great place to try this regional specialty. If you’re feeling extra hungry, get your chowder in a bread bowl. But you might want to save room for other treats, like dessert.
