Egg Foo Yung

Is there anyplace that serves this dish anymore. I am looking specifically in Cambridge, Boston and Somerville.

  1. Jade garden (Tyler Street) in C town does a nice version.

    1. East Asia in Powderhouse Sq. has it on the menu. I haven't ever tried it there, because the only time I've ever had this dish was at Kowloon and it was positively horrifying. "Juicy with grease" is the best way I can think of to describe it. So, so gross.

      East Asia Restaurant
      868 Broadway, Somerville, MA 02144

      1. My recent experiences with EFY (not that I eat many egg dishes), has been with restaurants that do mostly Americanized Chinese food. That being said, my wife, who is the EFY fan, has really liked versions she's ordered at Great Chow and Quincy Dynasty in Quincy. I have to say they were really good. One of the owners of GC told me that most chefs, even in restaurant that don't have it on the menu, do it very well, and would most likely make it upon request. Not sure who in Chinatown does it, but I would request it in my favorite restaurant and take a shot. You might be surprised. Not a difficult dish to execute.

        Quincy Dynasty
        49 Billings Rd, Quincy, MA 02171

        Great Chow
        17 Beale Street, Quincy, MA 02170

            I've actually enjoyed the vegetarian egg foo yung at the Hong Kong just outside of Harvard Square .

          2. Joyful Garden in Brighton does a nice version. They're in the hotel (Days Inn? can't remember) across the street from the Star Market on Western Avenue.
