chinatown suggestions with teenage boy
I'm planning a winter break Boston outing with my high school freshman son next week.
Any recs for Chinatown lunch?
He likes chicken and black bean sauce and scallion pancakes from CK Shanghi in Wellesly for point of reference.
thanks for your ideas
Shabu-shabu at Kaze or Shabu-Zen is fun, unique, and not too challenging to budding palates.
Pho, fresh rolls and bun at Xinh Xinh is another gentle introduction to an awesome cuisine.
Dumpling Cafe has a huge menu of Taiwanese specialties, from the unscary to the novel (and they have great XLB, which any teen should love).
A BBQ plate at Quick Pic or Vinh-Sun is delicious, not at all odd (except for bones in some dishes, which any chicken-wing eater shouldn't be too freaked out about), and a great Chinatown experience.
