Need help narrowing down options.... & a Peking Duck question!

WendyLovesToEat | Sep 22, 2002 04:52 PM

Hi Boston chowhounds!!
Looking for your expert opinions... I'll be visiting Boston for 2 short days this week - 2 lunches and 2 dinners. Have been reading the boards and taking lots of notes!

For the dinners, we're looking at either Cafe Baraka, Oleana, and/or King Fung Garden... King Fung sounds wonderful from all your comments, however, all the postings dated back to the year 2000. Can anyone confirm that they are still as good as ever? Do they still have the best Peking Duck in the city???

The lunches are more difficult because they need to be quick. I'll be at the Sheraton Boston (Back Bay), and need to stay within 4 or 5 blocks. One day will probably Bangkok Blue. The other I need help on... All of these sounded interesting... Any thoughts (either recommendations or "un-recommendations")? (we love any kind of food - it's just gotta be good!)

Himalaya (Indian, esp. S Indian)
Kaya (Korean/Japanese?)
Boston Schawarma
Dixie Kitchen (cajun)
Cafe Jaffa (Israeli)
Cafe Budapest (Hungarian?)
Arirang House (Korean/Chinese?)
Jae's Cafe & Grill (Thai)
Cheesecake Factory

Thanks for any words of wisdom and experience you can give!!!
