A Jewish Christmas, in two parts (this is Part One: the requisite Chinese meal)

Barbara and I chose to have our traditionally Jewish Chinese Christmas meal this year at Chau Chow, on Morrissey Boulevard in Dorchester. I am delighted to report that it was delicious. Of course there was too much food, so we had plenty of leftovers to take home.

For appetizers we had Peking ravioli, scallion pancakes, and hot and sour soup,:

Three appetizers should have been enough. But no, we also had to have three main dishes: Chinese broccoli with oyster sauce, twin lobsters with ginger and scallions (we resisted asking the server “How do you know they’re twins?”), and an astonishingly good dish, Chau Chow City lightly fried shrimp nuggets with soybean skin (new to us):

Part Two of our Jewish Christmas report will drop tomorrow.
