The two Chows

No, not two dogs. No, not two students whose last name is Chow. I’m referring to two Chinese restaurants: Chau Chow in Dorchester (discussed previously in this blog on 7/23/2008, 9/1/2006, and 5/9/2006) and Great Chow in the Wollaston section of Quincy (discussed only once in this blog, on 2/4/2006). Anyway, I just wanted to report that Barbara and I had a first-rate dinner at Great Chow the other night; we ordered far too much food, as all six of the special entrees were irresistible. Well, we had to resist, so we limited ourselves to three — which of course was still too much food. So we had leftovers to take home; nothing wrong with that. I highly recommend all three of the specials that we tried: lightly fried shrimp with garlic green beans, lobster with ginger and scallions, and roast duck with green beans.

Go to Chau Chow for dim sum, but Great Chow is definitely the better choice for dinner.
