      its strange bc I was just talking with a friend about how we always used to go to the chinatown location for the scallion pie and soup and were wondering what the rt 9 one was like. There are pics and video on whdh.com.

      Is that possible? Somehow I can't picture that. Not much room to be able to smash into that place.

      It sounds like there were no injuries, thank God. I wonder how long the restaurant will have to be closed.

              The video surveillance of the crash is amazing.

              Doris looks pretty shaken in the WHDH interview. I hope they are insured and able to re-open soon. Very nice people who make great food.

          Nine of us met for dinner at KFII last night. The front window is boarded up and Doris and Irvin seem to have recovered from the shock. Great dinner with scallion pancakes; peking duck; crispy whole chicken; spicy soft shell crabs (a special order); lamb; and fried/salted shrimp and squid with pork.

          Doris said they were planning to take most of July for a family vacation back home in China but those plans are somewhat in flux as they wait to hear what the city of Brookline is going to do for them for repairs.

            Did you order the peking duck in advance?

              Yes - same as the old place they need 24 hour notice.

              do we know if the Shanghai Lo Mein is the same as in the old place?
              we loved those big thick noodlZ.
