What do you get when you combine a cool and funky diner environment with super creative and tasty Asian inspired dishes? Boston’s own Myers + Chang, that’s what! And when you include friendly and attentive service – you have the makings for a great evening out.
Myers + Chang was the first stop on our gastronomical journey through Beantown. I’ve mentioned before how much I enjoy the whole tapas style of eating. I find sharing several dishes with the table makes for a more fun and intimate dining experience. And there is no shortage of delectable choices on the menu at Myers + Chang.
Our first dish was the aptly named Tiger’s Tears featuring grilled steak, Thai basil, lime, peppers and khao koor (ground and toasted rice). Tender meat and a super flavourful dish overall.
Next we had the grilled kalbi short ribs with apple kimchee, mustard sour cream and sesame along with the day’s special – fried oysters with pineapple over rice. Both dishes were perfectly prepared and well seasoned.
Our final three dishes were the fish tacos with kimchee sesame salsa, lemony shrimp dumplings and the go-for-broke braised pork belly buns drizzled with brandy hoisin. All items were excellent. We definitely hope to visit Myers + Chang again on our next visit to Boston as there were several dishes that we would love to try. Highly recommended. For now, back to the cage.
