Searching for Exceptional Chinese Food

beantowntitletown | Apr 3, 2008 07:14 PM

might be opening a big can of worms here, but will be heading back east to boston to visit family next week and am looking for exceptional chinese food for dinner. my family lives on the suburban south shore and next to the cape, and we’ve been going to chinatown to eat at china pearl, chau chow city, and jumbo seafood the last several years. these are good, but we’re kind of getting into a rut. while we love cantonese/hong kong style, we’re open to all regional cuisines, and atmosphere/ambience doesn’t matter. geographically we’d like to stick to the south shore on up to chinatown. but in looking at some recent chow threads and restaurant websites, it doesn’t look there’s much out of the ordinary on the south shore. would just appreciate your thoughts on places where they do food really, really well, and don’t modify it for western tastes. as an aside, we don't read chinese and can only speak toishan (poorly), so we might be missing some good stuff on that basis alone. thanks.
