Peach Farm Seafood- Boston Chinatown

Fusilli | Jun 26, 2001 11:47 AM

A typical chinatown restaurant, on the smaller side...did not have a good meal.

The crowd- all chinese families except for 3 people and then a tabel of studenty-looking folks walked in when we were leaving. My dinner companion that night was chinese, im not.

Live seafood tanks, very unhappy looking fish, although better than East Ocean City's tanks.

I had shrimp with cashews and vegetables. The shrimp was not prime quality. The cashews were downright nasty...old as the damned hills, light as air and all dried out. The Yee Mein noodles in a pot were okay, but not great.

The fried bean curd with vegetables...well the sauce was ok...the veggies so-so. But the bean curd was either old when it was fried, or it was fried a long time was completely dried out on the inside- bad texture, not much taste...

the chinese families were mainly eating lobster and big fish and meat dishes. Maybe this stuff is better. BUT they obviously dont mind using crappy old ingredients on some dishes. Maybe, maybe they can produce a winning dish or three, but i doubt they have an underlying eye for making good food.
