I’ve had two trips to Lord Hobo in Cambridge (yes the other side of the river) and I have to admit that once you get past the epic medieval journey (long walk from the T) it always proves to be a worthwhile time.
Lets start with the important things. No kingdom is complete without 40 quality draughts! Now, I know many places in Boston eclipse this offering, but what they lack in quantity they make up for in careful selection. They are one of the few places to offer Dogfish 120. Yes it comes in a small tasting glass, but I promise that’s all you will need!
Overwhelmed by the options? Just check with any member of the staff with types of beer you like and they will be able to direct you to what you are looking for.
Nothing but Long Live The Hobo cheers for their food selection. Oddly reflective of the beer, you’ll find a simple menu on the surface that will surprise you digging through the layer. High class food that you can;t get anywhere is the theme… as best as I can describe it.
Try the schnitzel, rotating pizza selection or oxtail… just try something! Last time I was there I had some of the schnitzel and a pizza with a spicy marinara – both contrasted the beer perfectly.
Cambridge Chic… not sure what that means? Well no one is. Let’s say its comfy casual with a classy undertone. No that doesn’t make any more sense… hmmmm… just look back to the cool decorative light pic and give this place a whirl, and yes it’s ok to bitch on the walk from the T!
