Peach Farm in chinatown...Help for menu selection

kthan | Jul 18, 2005 04:13 PM

I decided to have a dinner at Peach Farm restaurant in my upcoming Boston trip. It looks like this is the best chinese seafood restaurant in Boston (others mentioned Taiwan cafe as well, but they seems to be better at non-seafood item).

We are family of five (with two kids). The menus we are thinking to order are"

1.Oyster with black bean sauce: everyone mention this dish as a must-eat.

2. Soft shell crab (probably just salt & pepper, right?): I don't know August is the season (good time) for this dish.

3. Scallop (half shell) or clam (with black bean or any other sauce?): I heard scallop availability is seasonal. I don't know how good they are (in Aug, if available), compared with clam. Since I already have black bean sauce (w/oyster), I want to try the other sauce. Can anyone recommend any other sauce (I couldn't find one)?

4. How about their lobsters? I heard their twin lobster dish (with ginger and scalion?) is very good.

5. We need a chow fun dish because this is a must for our kids. But, I am not sure how good their chow fun is (crisp? taste of noodle?) We prefer to have either seafood w/vegetables or fish filet w/vegetables chown fun. Please let me know if they are very good.

Other then dishes above, there are others (like eel w/XO sauce, jumbo shrimp w/salt & pepper...). But, we cannot taste all (even all five dishes mentioned) withe 3 adults & 2 kids.

Please advise me which combination of menus would work best for us. I appreciate your helpful comments/advices in advance.
