      Potluck's more Northern Fujian (Fuzhou), they don't really have much of the southern Fujian stuff, but there are dishes here and there served at Taiwanese places that are essentially Southern Fujian.

        Lim did most of the ordering here and I'm guessing we hit a lot of the Fuzhou dishes.

          Holy crap, I'm sorry I missed that meal!

          Gini, a worthy goal.

    2. Shandong- Qingdao Garden

      1. All of the above, plus Japanese, Thai, and Polynesian: the Kowloon!

        hahahaha carry on!

        1. sichuan - FuLoon in Malden Center or Sichuan Garden in Brookline.

            Fuloon also has a bunch of Shandong/Lu dishes, which seemed to be the primary training of the chef.

              Or Chilli Garden in Medford Sq, which I ate at last weekend and was back to being excellent.

            2. We split the general queries about the characteristics and dishes of the different cuisines to its own separate thread on General Topics, so that you'll get a more comprehensive answer from a larger audience of chowhounds. The link is here:
