I miss new England style Chinese food. Especially the duck sauce. And I had no idea about the scorpion bowl was a New England thing. /mourn

I'd love to know if anyone ever finds a chinese place similiar to New England fare.

Geez, I was raised Catholic, so I had my first introduction to alcohol in God's own house. Didn't mean to offend.

Default NE chinese food

we have been here for almost 4 years and haven't found a good chinese place like we had in Mass. I have heard of a place in durham on hillsborough road called shanghai express from my doc. He was from springfield and has been here many years and he feels that is the best he's had. Let us know if you find a place like we had up north in the triangle.

If you like shrimp with lobster sauce, the way you ever got it in Mass., don't order it down here. It's a totally different dish, its a runny white sauce, almost looks like egg whites 1/2 cooked.

I miss good shrimp & lobster sauce... the best used to be from a place on Moody St in Waltham, Tiki House.

I've been here for 11 years and would trade southern bbq for some good polynesian-chinese anyday! I remember Aku-Aku, how 'bout Weylu's even. There was another great place to get Scorpion Bowls, it was a big chinese restaurant at the end of Rt.2 as you came into Cambridge, it was on the right. They even had a late-night buffet open!

It's not just the sauce - it's the seafood! The seafood caught local (and I mean like lobster and such that up in NE is fresh), might be fresh down here but the difference is the lobster in the warmer salt water of NC than the cold waters of NE. I miss that!

Scorpion bowls - wow what a memory LOL. There were some great Chinese restaurants up in NH - Asia and The Dynasty - well-known for their scorpion bowls and pu-pu platters.

A highly potent alcoholic drink made of several liquers and juice - vodka is one ingredient. Usually made in a large bowl and several straws are used and it's a shared drink among all at the table. However, you can find some who will make it for one person. Most people are quite tipsy after 2 of these.
