I tend to be skeptical of retail/restaurant combinations. IKEA serves frankfurters and Swedish meatballs, but you'd hardly drive there just to dine.

Vinh Sun BBQ and Restaurant
Constrained by a small word count, I often choose restaurants with relatively short menus. I correctly took Vinh-Sun to be a Cantonese "BBQ" specialist, a retailer of roast pork, whole suckling pigs, ducks, and chickens. But it's also a spanking-clean Ch

Great Taste Bakery and Restaurant
After a series of unimpressive Chinese restaurants (and one Korean place) had vacated the premises, this odd double-storefront reopened with a silly name — and actually delivers on it. All the food we had did taste great!

Winsor Dim Sum Café
At most of Boston’s dim-sum palaces, my strategy has always been to sit near the kitchen door, to get the little plates off the cart when they’re hottest.

On two more visits, it became clear that Minsok is mainly a very serious Korean restaurant, rather than a Japanese sushi place.

Chinese restaurants have given us so much flavor and value that it seems almost rude to point out that Boston hasn’t had a lot of luck with making them upscale.
