About a decade ago, I was a regular contributor to Chowhound’s Boston message board, with a particular interest in authentic, regional Chinese cooking.
I’ve disappeared, as my other commitments have made it difficult for me to put in the time to contribute meaningfully, but I recently saw this discussion on the SF board which includes a Google Drive map of regional restaurants in San Francisco: Regional Chinese roundup 3.0 (SF Bay Area)- April 2016 - December 2017 archive
This has moved me to start creating a similar database of regional Chinese restaurants for the Greater Boston area. A (very preliminary) first draft can be seen at https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer?mid=17VRcCggPUhGBTl1qgfDqf_UaYGyEAKjO
If any of you have more of a sense of how to lay these locations out more elegantly in a customized Google map, I’m all ears. And if you have thoughts about other places with real-deal regional cooking, please let me know about that, too.
