Myers + Chang
Great place!Went here for two-year anniversary with my boyfriend. We did the cheap date night dinner option, everything was delicious, food came fast, service was great. We will definitely be back!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMI'll be back soonI'm sorry it took me so long to get to Myers + Chang. I've admired Flour for some time now and kept meaning to make a res at Chef Chang's flagship resto. Finally had dinner there with my brother and we were so glad we did. So many Boston area restaurants claim to be asian fusion. But they're posers. For me, Myers + Chang and the recently opened Blue Dragon are the real deal. BTW, don't miss the grilled octopus with corn.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFun Boston Dining experienceLoved the dumplings and the grilled octopus and corn!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe love Myers + Chang. GreatWe love Myers + Chang. Great food that's creative and well prepared, friendly, lively atmosphere. When we bring friends from out of town, they always rave about the food. Some favorite dishes: arctic char roll, sweet-and-sour soup, any of the vegetable sides.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulousThe food is incredible. I try items I would probably never try anywhere else. Very original options. The staff is always very, very friendly and accommodating.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat night out!Date night! One of my coworkers has been raving about Myers & Chang for months now and I had never been before so when it came to me picking a restaurant for my boyfriend and I to visit for a night out on the town, I immediately thought of this place and was so pleased (we both were)!
When we walked in, we both instantly commented on the decor and ambiance- it was a really cool vibe in there and reminded me of a place you might find in downtown NYC. We were seated right away (I made reservations days before) and our server came over and welcomed us promptly. Throughout the meal, our server was incredibly nice, patient, and helpful in offering her suggestions. Dinner was delicious! Definitely save room for desert, too. 100% worth it.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMstaffOur waitres was wonderful, went out of her way to get us oriented and and get going with fantastic choices.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMThe best meal we had in boston...The best meal we had in boston... a definate must try. If I lived in boston it would be my regular go to spot. Service was incredible. Who would have known it was our server's first day. She was cheerful, knowledgeable and made great recommendations. I will dream about the garlicky coal black wings for some time.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMFunky as you would expectFunky as you would expect in the South End. Great food and lots of variety. Not your usual pan-Asian. Good spot for people watching too. Gets packed starting at 6PM.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMHigh End Dim SumWe went for dim sum on Sunday. It's not the same as dim sum in Chinatown proper, even though we were still in Chinatown. No ladies pushing carts here, and everyone speaks English. There was only 1 Asian person working in the restaurant so I admit I was a little worried, but several diners were Asian. The cocktails were excellent, with an Asian twist, and the dim sum was original,and had AMAZING flavors. This is high end dim sum at its best. I can't recommend this place enough!I'm looking forward to returning for dinner!4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMCan't wait to go again!!!!!!This was our first visit to Myers and Chang. We saw Joanne on an episode of "Simply Ming" with Ming Tsai on PBS and again on another cooking show (possibly Food Network) and said "We have to try this place"! The food is uncluttered, 4-5 ingredient based, and simply delicious. Being this was out first visit, we decided to order an appetizer or two, then, depending on those and how hungry we were, we would keep ordering...or not. We started with Mama Chang's pork dumplings - thin dumpling skins and the pure flavor or delicious pork were a huge hit. Then the airy, crispy scallion pancakes, then the fish tacos, and chicken and udon noodles were delectable treats. You MUST go here!!!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect place to get togetherPerfect place to get together w/ some girlfriend. Inventive food and drinks!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was amazing-- inspired,The food was amazing-- inspired, novel, and supremely made.

We are already planning our return visit.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMFood adventures at Myers + ChangCreative food with delightful flavor pairings. Wonderful service!

Also our server, Peter (along with the rest of the service staff) was incredibly attentive and Chef Karen was great to both watch and talk to throughout our meal. Highly recommended.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThe fact that your table isThe fact that your table is ready at the time of your reservation already hits high marks. We ordered the following : scallion pancakes, pork bao buns, Mama Chan's dumplings, Korean BBQ sloppy joe and fried rice. Don't forget dessert ! House made coconut cream pie, yes the tart shell was hand made, and a vanilla cream with organge granita. Service was friendly, not overbearing, just the way we like it. Water glasses were constantly full.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWhen we ordered our meal,When we ordered our meal, we asked our waitress if we should order just our apps first or just tell her everything now... in hopes that all of our food wouldn't come out at once. It did. I don't know if that's just how things go there, but unfortunately a lot of our food got cold. All that being said, the food was DELICIOUS! Also, when the waitress asked if we wanted dessert and we said, OF COURSE, we were disappointed when we waited and waited, only to get our check.
I'd like to think it was a fluke night, because I love the food in that place and the wait staff is generally wonderful and on top of their game.
All in all, I will definitely be going back!4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of my favorite restaurantsOne of my favorite restaurants in Boston. The food is consistently wonderful with a dazzling interplay of flavors, colors and textures. Even converted my dining partner to tofu after eating the spicy silky tofu. This is a place you go to eat. The ambiance is casual, tables a bit close together but the excellence of the food surpasses everything.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food. I had high expectationsGreat food. I had high expectations and it exceeded it.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMA South End MustVery accommodating to dietary restrictions. Staff here is FABULOUS!3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMI think there is a legitimateI think there is a legitimate case to be made that this is the best restaurant in the city. Obviously there are fancier and more expensive places, with more elaborate decor, etc., but when you dig back at the essential core of what a restaurant is-- the food-- every time I've been here (10 or so) and tried almost every dish, each one is outstanding, there are no boring fillers on the menu, there is no dish that isn't special in its taste, seasoning or preparation. Bravo!3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThis place is wonderful! TheThis place is wonderful! The food is incredible with extremely reaonable prices. I have been there a dozen times and have not ever been disappointed. The service is also superior. It is one of my favorite paces to eat in Boston. Make sure to make reservation if you want yo sit at a table, this place is in high demand. It is one of the reasons I love living in Boston, to have such convenient and awesome place to eat. If you get a chance, try one of her cafe, Flowers, for awesome dessert. You won't be dissappointed!Myers and Chang are geneous. I hope they don't ever change a thing about it.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMAdventurous tastes. GreatAdventurous tastes. Great mix of Asian influences. Very affordable. Highly recommended!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMMyers and Chang only gets better!For no particular reason, we had not visited Myers and Chang for several months and so I was a little surprised by how spectacular this restaurant really is. The dishes are original, varied, brightly delicious, and nicely presented. The wait staff is young, well-informed, and friendly. And the chef, Karen Akunowicz, radiates good will and culinary competence. For anyone who has not had the pleasure, Myers and Chang will provide a startling and delightful extension of what you thought you knew about Asian food. For returning customers, Myers and Chang only gets better.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall, a good experience.Overall, a good experience. As is all too often the case, the small plates were more interesting and daring than the large plates. We loved the dumplings and octopus salad that started the meal, but of our main courses, only one (a duck fried rice special) stood out.
The lamb belly was one-dimensional and lacking zip and brightness; the lamb belly meat itself, usually gloriously fatty, was dry, possibly because it was overcooked. The salmon was well-prepared but plated in a confusing way, with discs of ginger that scanned as slices of fingerling potato...until I put one in my mouth to experience the worst bite of the evening.
The staff is great and the space is nice, so I'll be back to see whether I can have a better food experience.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMHip, fun, small platesFun ambiance, great music, decent food (not going to wow you but good and fit for sharing -- small plates style).3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth the tripOne of the very few restaurants in the South End worth finding parking for, we love trying everything on the menu. Especially the Dan Dan Noodles and the Brussel Sprouts (and I never thought I would ever say that I love Brussel Sprouts). The Dim Sum style menu on Weekend Brunch is perfect for sharing and it's easy to accomodate "veg, gluten free, dairy free" people and have the meal still be great. The staff is so friendly and helpful- we can't say enough good things.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe LovemThis Place!Another visit to Myers and Chang! Love- love- love the Charred Wok Udon Noodles with chicken among other things.
Always a warm welcome, great service.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMI wanted to go back the nextI wanted to go back the next day. Myers and Chang will certainly make my top 5 list of Best Boston finds. The menu is incredible, lots of variety (even for my gluten free friend). One dish that is a must is the Salmon Tartare.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMMyers & Chang is consistentlyMyers & Chang is consistently outstanding. The food and service are excellent and the environment lively. Its not a great spot for a private, quiet conversation but great to run into old friends and to see your neighbors. The menu always has some old favorites but frequently there are new exciting items to try. The desserts are delicious. Save room for the banana cream pie!3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAppreciated the flexibilityAppreciated the flexibility in changing my reservation from 5-6 people and seating us early even when then whole group wasn't present. Food and drinks were delicious and the sharing portions were larger than expected.3/1/2013 12:00:00 AMNeither Snow Nor SleetGreat Blizzard-y brunch. I can't believe they fault the elements --but the great staff fought through the weather and served up another great dim sum brunch.
