If you wana have authentic Chinese food, keey away from Chinatown. I never invite my friends to Chinatown, because those restaurants only try to fit the taste of American, which means they are losing the original taste of Chinese food.
Try some Chinese restaurants in brookline, someville, cambridge. If you like spicy food, Sichuan garden is not a bad choice.
Favorite Dish: Sichuan liangmian,
shui zhu niu rou....
