If you want good Chinese, Red pepper. If you want perfectly shitty Chinese-American takeout, I love Chef Ho on Millbury St. And that’s not bullshit. I love Chef Ho. I grew up eating “Chinese” take out. It wasn’t until a decade or so ago that I realized that Chinese food and Chinese-American takeout were different things. I love Chinese food and will keep exploring it wherever I can. But sometimes I just want a dinner combo of Gen Gau with your choice of app on a huge bed of fried rice. Chef Ho does this and does it reliably well.

Also, I know it’s a lil out of the way, but Meiji in N Oxford makes some damn good food. I’ve only been twice but both times I left pleasantly surprised. Menu isn’t anything special. Standard Chinese-American plus sushi, but the food quality is very high.
