Myers + Chang
Posted by Leah K on 05/05/2015
My Mom spontaneously came into town and said she wanted to eat Joanna Chang’s food. I was like “you mean Flour?” and she was said “oh well sure…but I meant her other restaurant.” Myers and Chang’s it is! We called on our way home from shopping and asked for vegetarian recommendations. They told me to check the website for the vegetarian menu. Perfect! They quoted us 45 minutes but it took about half an hour. On our way over, I pulled over for my mom to run into Flour. 15 minutes later…..she came out lots of baked goods. But that’s for another review! Edamamae Dumplings: I love dumplings, so I was a huge fan of these. My momo said she didn’t like the greens in them, maybe she found them bitter? I liked the hit of wasabi inside. Untraditional Scallion Pancake: YUM. Salty and scalliony….one of my favorites. They reheat nicely in your toaster oven. Wild Mushroom Lo Mein: I’m used to lo mein being greasy and sad, but this was neither. The duck egg is scrambled into it, and the flavor was delicious. The mushrooms made it filling and meaty, and the noodles were cooked perfectly. Brown Rice: Great addition to round out a meal, but honestly, we didn’t need to include it. Crispy Spring Rolls: I think this is a must get. We could have eaten barrels of the sauce (similar to a duck sauce). I would say this is a classic spring roll…but perfectly executed. Hot, crispy, sweet, salty. Everything. To top it off, they included shrimp crackers and lemon ginger mousse. We polished off the mousse, but sadly could not consume the shrimp crackers as we are vegetarians/keep kosher. Thank you for the thoughts, though!

We make a point of getting to M&C almost every time we go to Boston. We have a variety of favorites like the Tiger's Tears, Fish Tacos, wok charred octopus and cold Taiwanese Dan Dan Noodles. The atmosphere is great especially when busy (most of the time) a good mix of younger and older (like us) clientele. The service has always been excellent and I have never felt that I was paying too much for what we ate, quite the opposite really. I'm surprised at the amount of negative feedback as I have been to M&C at least 15 times and have not had any negative experiences. If you like Asian food with a twist I think you will love M&C

Great concept, interesting atmosphere, trying-to-be-cool vibe... but the food falls way short. Not much wowed us, and most of the dishes were swimming in grease. Surprised, considering the owners. And it isn't inexpensive, either. Wouldn't return.

A friend and I ate at M&C 15 minutes before they were to close. The waitress "rushed" us and the appetitzer, we hardly got down before they put our dinner plates in front of us. Clearly, they wanted us outta there. The beef chow fun and wok dish were salty and lousy. Also, the atmosphere is really weird. Cafeteria/diner? And for the price -- not worth it.

I think my experience can be summed up this way: small portions, weird atmosphere, and hefty tab. No value here. The place was empty with few customers which was a little eerie, but I went relatively early for dinner in the SE. Food was good, not great so I was a little confused about the pricing. Food came out piecemeal when hot. I usually don't eat my veggies before the main course so that was a little odd but M&C explains peculiarity on menu. It's still a tad bit bizarre for my taste. I'm a little old fashioned in that I want my appetizer as an appetizer, not as a side dish. The place was clean and had friendly staff so that was a plus.

I've been to M&C a few times. The food can be exceptionally good on one visit and mediocre the next so QC is an issue. The menu is unique with varied choices. The waitstaff was pleasant during both lunch and dinner visits. My biggest complaint is the that the portion sizes are miniscule. On one dinner visit, my guest an I ordered several items, forked over $65 and left hungry. The next visit was a tad better, but still highly overpriced.

We stopped in on a whim and were able to be seated at the counter quickly although it was busy. Pleasant environment- liked the lighting above the table areas. We chose quite a few items and were also given a freebie of the edamame and cilantro salad. We enjoyed everything! The edamame salad was a nice, fresh combination that nicely balanced the meat and chicken we had. We also enjoyed the pickles plate, the pork dumplings (a little greasy), the hot and sour soup - very flavorful - the spring rolls and best of all the fried chicken. The chicken was done exactly right with a crispy skin and delicious sauces. We received a nice ender of lemon cream with grated ginger. The homemade sodas were good, too- cherry and ginger, and lychee and vanilla, but a bit pricey at $4 each. All in all a great experience. We'd definitely go back.
