I posted this on this thread here, but it was so good it really deserves it's own posting.
Great Taste Bakery & Restaurant Chinatown
61-63 Beach Street
Inspired by the follow on posts, I finally ate a meal there as opposed to just buying buns. I had the spicy fried pork rib rice plate. Okay for starters I think I ate the best $6 meal in Boston. A bit similar to a prep at Best Little Restaurant.
It took a little while to come out. It was obviously made upon ordering: Big meaty pork ribs perfectly deep fried, very crispy outside, meaty and juicy inside, the fried ribs were covered with a nice scattering of fried garlic, red dried chilis, and fresh green chilis. I should not have finished the generous portion, but I did ;-). Frankly, the execution was spot on perfect. The work of a talented chef, delicious!
It is after meals like this when I question going to some of the pricier places in town only to (with some frequency) eat lesser fair.
