Cannolis in Boston
I went to Mike's Pastry in the North End a while back and had the best cannoli I've ever tasted!! I usually split my visits between Mike's and the Modern as I love them both. The cannoli I had at Mike's was a ricotta cream filling, but the deal closer for me was the shell. It wasn't a typical crispy fried/baked shell, but one made with nuts and honey and possibly (nougatine?) I couldn't believe how good it was! I almost walked into traffic I was so into it. Has anyone else tried one of these from Mike's or know what I'm referring to? I tried to look it up on their website, but came up with nothing referring to the one I had had.
