Chinese food for my non-Chinese food eating wife

bobbert | Aug 3, 2011 06:49 AM

Will be in Boston this weekend with my wife who doesn't like Chinese food. I'm convinced it's because, living in Maine most of her life, she has never had good Chinese food. She's actually fairly adventurous when it comes to ethnic food but most Maine Chinese places seem to serve the same generic salty, greasy slop. I'm looking for a nice place (if there are fish swimming around in a tank, the water has to be clear), not very spicy, maybe good vegetarian choices. Basically, real solid food in a fairly upscale environment. I'd like to play this safe. This is probably my last chance to convince her that what she has tried in the past really isn't what Chinese food is really about.
