Best shrimp Scampi in Boston or Cambridge
My wife and I are both having a craving. What say the Chowhounds? Anywhere around Cambridge is fine.
The lobster scampi at Moulton's (Winthrop St) in Medford is huge enough for 2, delicious, and usually under $30 - I expect they do a great shrimp scampi for much less that will be good - it's local and super casual - I've never had anything remotely bad there (well, except the very sad, tiny little green side salad with its flavorless cucumber and tomato slices - veggies are not the focus...).
Whenever you are looking for good shrimp ALWAYS INQUIRE if the shrimp is wild caught (good) or farm-raised (bad). Most restaurants now use farm raised Black Tiger Shrimp from Asia for their large sized shrimp needs. Very little flavor. A Gulf Shrimp or a Wild Mexican or South American Shrimp would be preferable.
