New Jumbo, U Burger

New Jumbo, Chinatown, Boston

Bright and spiffy after a renovation. New owners, but same kitchen and waitstaff as the previous Jumbo.

Good salt and pepper eel, thin golden brown batter, the eel still retaining a bit of its chewy texture. Nice touches of spiciness from chopped jalapenos and ground red chilli.

Also satisfying was the pea shoots with a white spongy bamboo pith fungus.

U Burger, Kenmore Sq., Boston

A decent burger, could use more beefy flavour in the patty, but overall, considering the price, it's ok. Not exactly In N Out, but not bad.

Onion rings are pretty good, battered and fried to order. The batter is light and thin, would have liked it fried a tiny bit more, but that's a quibble.

An ok black and white milkshake, certainly a lot of it. The chocolate syrup doesn't rock my world but the milkshake is thick and smooth. Might try the mint oreo one next time.
