One week in Chinatown Boston would not be enough time to experience all their great restaurants.
I would still like to give it another try someday.
It has the history, sites, activities, and diversity of people that makes big cities so great.
Above all, it has the amazing variety of foods brought together by all those people.From the local fisherman supplying the seafood.
Boston has a lot going on in the food industry.
One of the most exotic places to satiate your taste buds in Beantown is in Chinatown.
Chinatown Boston is the 3rd largest Chinatown in the U.S. behind New York and San Francisco.
It is also one of the most densely populated neighborhoods in Boston.
Thus making it densely populated in delicious Asian restaurants.
Chinatown Boston is the best part of the city to visit after a late night of drinking.
Many restaurants are open past midnight and the food is always delicious.
After a few days of stuffing my face with some of the best pizza and seafood I’ve had in the states.
It was time for me to indulge in Asian cuisine.
My friend and I were in Boston for sole purpose of eating.
We tried to visit as many places as possible before our stomachs felt like they might burst.
Our first restaurant in Chinatown was:
BUBOR CHA CHA
We showed up late at night and had the restaurant to ourselves.
The 1st thing we said to each other before we even opened the menu was:
“We’re ordering the first weird thing that we see.”
As soon as we opened the menu the first appetizer at the top was Jellyfish(served cold).
We both looked at each other and said “I guess we’re getting Jellyfish.”
They also serve Deep Fried Pork Intestine, Seafood Birds Nest, and Sauteed Duck Tongue.
Despite how delicious that all sounded we stuck with something a bit more delectable:
Frog with ginger Casserole.
But we weren’t stopping there.
Fried Chicken Wings, Shrimp Pad Thai, and Pork Dumplings were also on their way.
Between 2 people we might have overdone it.
But it was all worth the crippling stomach ache as we dragged ourselves back to our B&B.
On a Late Night Quest.
As gluttons for punishment we went back the next night.
This time we attempted entry at the Gourmet Dumpling House.
Which is right across the street from Bubor Cha Cha.
However, this popular destination actually closes at a reasonable time.
Given that we were already roaming the streets in the A.M. we needed to find a new late night spot.
Luckily for us we found the perfect one.
Peach Farm might be one of the latest opening restaurants in Chinatown.
11 am-3 am everyday of the week.
We found our Shangri-La.
On this night we were more drunk and hungrier than the night before.
Once again we didn’t pull any punches when it came to ordering our food.
We ordered Chicken Fingers AND Chicken Wings.
Roast Duck AND Shredded Duck.
Along with Noodles and Clams with Black Bean Sauce.
We were fucking savages!!!
Our Last Day.
There are so many different types of amazingly delicious restaurants throughout Boston.
Unfortunately we couldn’t squeeze in more time for another restaurant in Chinatown.
But my friend was not leaving the city until we went to his favorite Asian Bakery.
HING SHING PASTRY INC.
It’s the perfect place to swing by if you’re heading to Boston’s South Station as it’s only a 5-10 minute walk away.
Hing Shing is one of the oldest bakeries in Chinatown and has not changed their recipes in years.
It’s a staple of the neighborhood.
Many of their pastries were under $1 and I honestly felt like I should be paying more.
But it gave me more reasons to buy ridiculous amounts of food to stuff in my face as we made our way to the airport.
Boston is a culinary mecca of the USA.
Whatever type of food you’re looking for you are sure to find here.
See the sites and learn about American history.
But do not forget to indulge in the food beyond Dunkin Donuts and Legal Sea Foods.
