EXCLUSIVEGeorge Jung arrived in San Francisco on Monday night to move into a halfway house ... but tells us the Massachusetts native dined on a hometown favorite before his flight.
As TMZ first reported, Jung -- the prolific cocaine smuggler portrayed by Johnny Depp in the movie "Blow" -- was released from prison yesterday after serving nearly 20 years behind bars.
"Boston George" -- who looks good for having spent two decades behind bars -- told a photog at the airport he partook in a New England mainstay before heading west.
He also dropped some deeply philosophical life advice. Considering the source, do with it as you see fit.
