So, on a whim, I packed MrsJimbob and the fam down to World’s End Reservation in Hingham to tromp around and check out an unexpected English-looking park dropped on the South Shore coast. We loved it, and on the way back, I shopped to my heart’s content at Kam Man. But I’m thinking that the next time we go back, I need to plan out lunch. In this time of quarantine, we’d be looking for take-out.
So: looking for a good seafood place. Ideally a seafood shack that doesn’t deep fry everything beyond recognition, and that has salads that aren’t afterthoughts. A perusal of the board suggests that Burke’s in Quincy is one place to look, and that the clash between the Clam Box and Tony’s Clam Shop on Quincy Shore Drive is sort of like a Harvard-Yale, Carnegie-Katz’s type rivalry, with each place having its own partisans. Any other places I should check out?
The other thing is that I’m looking to explore the authentic regional Chinese options in Quincy. Chili Square in Quincy looks particularly intriguing – the Chinese name, 蘭州牛肉麵 (LanZhou Beef Noodle Soup) implies they do a regional dish that I have not found easily elsewhere in greater Boston. In a previous thread, I saw props for Taipei Cuisine (though the menu looks a little too much like it can’t make up its mind which cuisine it’s doing), Jenny’s House (which looks like a promising dumpling-and-bao-and-noodles joint), though I take it the SuZhou place in President’s Place is now gone.
The Bloomy Rind in Hingham also looks interesting as a quirky cheese shop with potentially tempting looking sandwiches. And there are a ton of gastropub-looking places up and down the coast. Are there any standouts that I should check out?
