The best Ethnic food in Boston/Cambridge?

Our wedding anniversary is coming up next month, and we're thinking about going to a nice ethnic place. Any suggestion? (Other than Elephant Walk)

  1. "Ethnic food" is casting a pretty wide net. Perhaps if you could define your preferences, dislikes or cuisines that intrigue you but you have not tried. I think narrowing it down a bit will garner you responses other than "do a search".

    1. We are pretty adventurous eater, so it can be anything. We're pretty knowledgeable about restaurants in Boston area, we actually have a couple of places in mind, but I think it's more fun to try a new place (at least new for us, anyway!)
      We like food with character, and we dislike overpriced food (and I mean overpriced, expensive food can be worth it, if the actual food is expensive)

      1. FuLoon in Malden Center. A bit of a hike, but actually only two blocks' walk away from the Malden Center Orange Line stop. Search this board for multiple posts preaching the good news, it's one of the finest all-around real deal Chinese restaurants that I've come across in a while.

          I've probably posted this before but Fuloon is very accessible to anyone in downtown..quick trip a few stops on the Orange Line and a short walk.

          Very accessible and worth the trip.

        2. I know it's not Boston/Cambridge but it sounded really nice.

          1. Try Malaysian fare if you haven't already...Aneka Rasa in Allston and Penang in Chinatown are the best picks.
