this sf hound will be back in town for one weekend. meeting up with a friend who just started grad school at harvard and another friend from out of town. we were all chatting about the meals we're interested in and i did a bit of poking around this site. so as a follow up, here are a few questions.
1) Are there are good Chinese restaurants in Cambridge aside from Qingdao (last page of menu)?
2) My family used to go to dim sum at China Pearl. However, I'm open to any new suggestions. Is New Shanghai the best in town?
3) We're probably going to Tamarind Bay for a dinner. What are people's favorite dishes? chili chicken, black lentil- what else?
4) We wanted to bring my friend who isn't familar with Boston at all to a meal in the North End for a weekend lunch. Is there any reasonably ($$ ok, but not $$$) but delicious restaurant?
