was at Haru in No. Andover last night and looking for something different. i was served a bowl of sliced raw jellyfish in a sweet, salty spicy sauce.
i have seen this item on a few Chinatown menus but never gave it a second thought.
i must say that i truly enjoyed the texture and the crunch, i never had any idea.
sooooooooooo,,, who's doing the best jellyfish in the Boston area?
I really like the jelly fish & garlic at Wang's in Somerville. Wouldn't call it crunchy though, it's been soaked.
I like the version at New Shanghai, tossed with sesame oil, finely mincely green onion and balanced with pickled radish.
Another Chinatown place - Wing's Kitchen. Theirs is sliced up noodle-style with a light sauce that I want to say is soy based. A crunchy texture quite unlike what I would have expected. Assumedly not the same jellyfish floating around the docks of the Boston Harbor.
I really did like Wing's jellyfish, but one caveat is that I don't have a great means of comparison to know what the "proper" dish is supposed to be. I have limited jellyfish experience.
