A long time ago, I went to Myers + Chang in Boston. The fact that I am writing it up right now should tell you what I thought of it. Basically, the food was too salty, and at best it tasted like mediocre Chinese food. The green papaya slaw we started with was alright; I don’t like peanuts but I ate around them. I mostly just remember that it was pretty spicy.
The coal-black wings were actually unpleasant to eat. Way too salty and really spicy. Like, pitcher of water spicy.
The pork buns were relatively inoffensive. P.S. WTF’s up with the chilies used as garnish on all the plates (see above and below as evidence)? Trust me, the food was spicy enough, I wasn’t going to start adding chili rings to the dishes.
Aside from also being too salty, I kind of liked the tea smoked ribs.
The wok-charred noodles with chicken, bok choy, and oyster sauce were awful. The waiter recommended the noodles to us, saying that they were one of the most popular dishes on the menu. Blech, all I tasted was crappy American Chinese food.
I liked the concept of Myers + Chang but the food just did not deliver. I think this might be due in part to the restaurant biting off more than they can chew. They need to narrow their scope and cook one cuisine really well, not attempt and fail at Chinese, Taiwanese, and Southeast Asian food. Do yourself a favor and go to Chinatown if you want a decent meal from any of the above cuisines (too harsh? I don’t think so).
