I can't recall reading about this place here, so if it has been reviewed, please forgive me.

Men Tei is the little noodle place at 66 Hereford Street, between Boylston and Newbury.

I have had a number of lunches there recently, and have been extremely impressed with the following:

A beef tongue appetizer, thin slices, served warm, with a slightly salty soy glaze on the outside.

Pork chop noodle soup with yellow noodles. A very flavorful thin pork chop, fried, and then julienned into a light broth with noodles. I also tried a miso soup that was not as good.

Finally, saving the best for last, Octopus wheat dumplings. They are like small mounds of a light bready dumpling filled with a chunk of octopus, and covered with a slighltly vinaigred soy glaze. I could eat a couple of orders of these, no problem.

The shrimp shu-mai were just so-so. Nothing wrong with them, but nothing to rave about.

Have any other hounds tried other things on this menu?
