Need Great Chinese on the North Shore

  • l

I'm trying to plan a Chinese style banquet for my parents 50th anniversary. None of their friends will drive into Boston,so I'm at a loss...I need recommendations and menus for a great Chinese place around Peabody, Danvers, Saugus,so I won't anguish about how much BETTER it would have been in Chinatown!!!

  1. Su Chang's on Lowell Street in Peabody is exactly what you are looking for. We particularly like the clams in black bean sauce, lobster with ginger and scallion, and salt and pepper calimari - outstanding! They also have a second floor function room.

      Hey, thanks for the tip!! I broke down, and told the parents, because a surprise wasn't possible, and they mentioned Su Chang's, and had a fabulous time at a party there.. ("They kept bringing out platters of food, and announcing each dish!", was my mother's rec...)...BUT----sorry to say, the parents' taste cannot totally be trusted, but when a chowhound seconds it, I know I'm on the right track...SO, we are having their party there, at the end of April! Thanks for the help---I'll post a report after the event!

        Great! I'm sure you'll all have a great time. One other must-have is the special soup called Sai Wu Minced Beef Soup - it is filled with fresh cilantro, mushrooms, tofu, and sliced beef. It is one of my favorites.
