Ethnic seafood

Brother is visiting from Wyoming and wants seafood. I could go the Legal's/LTK/Summer Shack route, but I think more intersting would be ethnic. Any recommendations for Chinese, Portugese, other?

  1. Chinatown dim sum at Chau Chow City on Essex Street is quite the experience.

    I can point you to great Portugese but in Lowell.

    If he likes oysters and don't want to break the bank, theres a great thread on here about great deals at McCormick and Smitctch and another bar for $1 oysters - just search for it. I think M&S was tuesday nights.

    1. Here it is and the bar was 28 Degrees between 5-7pm - $1 oysters - can't beat that when Legals gets ya for $26 a dozen (although delicous)

      1. Try the salt cod at Portugalia in East Boston. For steamed Cantonese stuff, I like Peach Farm; for fried, New Jumbo is my go to place -- both in Chinatown.

        1. And then there's the Daily Catch in the North End. Some on this group say it's fallen (like many local legends) on hard times, and I can't say I've been there recently, but my memories at least are of an outstanding seafood restaurant. My favorite quip is someone describing the calamari as having been suffocated by drowning in garlic.
