I have to recommend Sugarcane Restaurant in Peabody Square. It's Chinese and Vietnamese. My husband got the special last Friday night, Ginger Scallion Lobster. It was a whole lobster, broken up for easy eating, in a delicious ginger scallion sauce. And, it was only $13! Steamed white rice, to wipe up the sauce with, was $1 more. Such a steal.
I had a Vietnamese vermicelli bowl with spring rolls and grilled shrimp, also fanstatic.
I also recommend their Thai salmon and steamed dumplings and pho.
It's a great place, nice, clean, great staff, full bar, parking.
