Our favorite in Boston's Chinatown remains Big Fish Seafood Restaurant. We are addicted to the hot pot called Lamb w/Bamboo Shoots, Water Chestnuts here. Though costly compared to other menu selections, it deserves the term divine. Frog with Garlic is three bucks less and their least expensive hot pot. They say it is less popular, not sure why; it is terrific, too. Braised Chicken is a savory beauty and the Braised Duck with Eight Delight is just that, a delight. Deep Fried Flounder, Braised Beef Tendon and Vegetables, and the Beef Chow Foon rate high marks. Be sure to ask for it 'dry' as they do serve it soupy, or what they call 'in gravy.' It does not compare to the dry version.
Beef with Bitter Melon, Steamed Bean Curd with Shrimp, Diced Chicken in Peanut Sauce, and the many rice plates and noodle dishes plain or in soup, and the Szechuan dishes here remove hunger pangs. This eatery feeds myriads of Boston and Cambridge college students and their profs. These youngsters and oldsters wolf down this restaurant's dishes that are under ten bucks; about half of them. That, and they gorge on the weekly lunch specials costing lots less. Many of their customers say their inexpensive dishes are as good as the pricier ones. Seems everyone knows ordering here anything is a wise decision.
