"40 Fantiatic Dishes in Boston"
Glad the Boston Globe tapped on such reliable Boston "foodies" for this authoritative list:
how about wontons with chili sauce at sichuan gourmet, the pan fried lobster at summer shack, various off the menu dishes at CK Shanghai, steamed fresh shrimp and clams with black beans from East Ocean Seafood, okra at Tamarind Bay, beef in ma la broth at little q hot spot, chefs choice at Craige on Main for starters

East Ocean Restaurant

"anything in mala broth" at little q is on list. I must try this.
They stretched to the burbs a little too far IMO. Easton, Shrewsbury, Lincoln? I might also have missed something, but it seems to be lacking a single dish from the north end. Would have expected to see a dessert, possibly the torrone at modern. Maybe a sandwich from Pace or Monica's Mercato. There's no way I'm heading out to Canton for an Italian sub.
well, since MC and you seem to know the most about the boston food scene, why not start a thread with your own lists?
by the way, after your post, i went to little q and ordered the mala - which as you suggested turned out to be even better when i left it in the refrigerator for a couple of days.
