Chinatown in Boston is about 3-4 blocks of asian food and desserts, there are lots of good stuff. Clay pot!
While in Boston, visit Chinatown. There are loads of bakeries, sandwich shops, markets and various Asian influenced places to check out. Just past the entrance you can see a crowd of folks playing table games like mahjong... I've never gotten close enough to see what they are playing but it seems to draw a crowd some days. While in a bakery, try a curry pork roll... In fact, any rolled and baked item is worth the roughly $1.39 it costs to try. If it doesn't suit your tastes throw it to a pigeon and move to the next spot. Take a picture of a cooked and hanging duck in a window moments before you walk inside and point to the same duck as something you want included in your lunch. Why not? Interesting stories and unforgettable meals rarely come from eating at golden arches.
Downtown Boston's Chinatown is the cultural heart of the Chinese community and a lively late-night hub. Asian eateries range from dumpling houses and dim sum palaces to seafood spots and upscale lounges. Bakeries, food markets and gift shops dot the area. At the entrance to the neighborhood, contemporary Chinatown Park features a river-inspired fountain, plants native to Asia and a square that draws chess players.
