Best hot & sour soup in Boston?

Way back when, there was a little Chinese restaurant on Kilmarnock Street in the west fens, called Stars Ocean. It had the standard ugly bright yellow sign and looked like nothing much, but it was nothing like the chicken-fingers-and-pork-fried-rice-combo places that blot the landscape nowadays. Everything was really good. Of course it didn't last, and once it was gone, I knew how good I'd had it. I've found adequate replacements for many of my Stars Ocean faves (although not all in one place...sniff)...EXCEPT for hot and sour soup. No one seems to make hot & sour worth a damn. It's bland or it's got too much white pepper or it's gummy, it never has enough vinegar...bleah. Does anyone in Boston make a decent hot and sour soup anymore?
