About Myers + Chang
Myers + Chang is a funky indie diner setting offering Chef/Owner Joanne Chang and Christopher Myers's very personal interpretation of Chinese, Taiwanese, Thai, and Vietnamese specialties. At Myers + Chang, we focus on sourcing fresh, beautiful, local-when-possible ingredients, using lighter sauces, and giving you either fun and innovative takes on classic dishes, or creating new dishes that stay true to the flavors of the region.
We are inspired by Taiwanese soul food and Southeast Asian street food, all done with a great deal of care. It is a personal, sometimes loose interpretation, to be sure, but our criteria are simple: everything we make must be fresh, delicious, and addictive. We are passionate about sharing our love of this food with you.

Myers + Chang Ratings and Reviews
I thought the food was really good and we had fun but our waitress did not seem very knowledgeable and she wasn't attentive either. Also, there was a freezing cold vent blowing on us all night. We asked them to turn it down considering we were there on a night when it was about 20 degrees outside but they said "it would take a long time" and never turned it down so we basically froze through the entire meal.
Oh my god. Took a date for dinner Thursday night. We ordered way too much food, which was all ridiculously incredible. Absolutely my favorite spot in the city. Anyone who takes a date to dinner anywhere else is a fool. The meal was the start of literally one of the best nights I have had in my entire night.
I must admit that my daughter and were both disappointed. We love this restaurant and have always had a great experience. This time, we ordered the only vegetarian option on the 'cheap date night' menu and requested a substitute to balance the starch with greens, but were told absolutely not. As a result, we got a table full of carbs...rice, noodles, potatoes, deep fried spring rolls...and not enough protein or greens. We ended up ordering an extra dish and taking home almost everything.
Myers and Chang is one of Boston's great restaurants. They could rest on their laurels as a casual, highly creative pan-Asian treasure. But Joanne Chang and Karen Akunowicz are not into resting on their laurels. They continue to invent surprising new dishes. Since we last visited this restaurant we have long loved, they added, for example, red curry shrimp and grits, smokey and spicy, with the shrimp very lightly battered and fried. The fresh roll now comes sliced like super-sized maki, with a generous portion of special peanut sauce. Classics like the amazing dumplings remain. The service remains prompt and friendly. Sit at the bar if you can and watch the cheerful choreography of preparation. And come back soon because who knows what they will have thought of in the meantime.
My friend and I took advantage of their "Cheap Date Night" offering, they run it Monday & Tuesday, $45/two people with a preset menu. It's definitely worth the price, and you can always add on a two person scorpion bowl for $16. Service was great per usual!
The brussel sprouts and Thai lettuce wraps were delicious. I wish my group had gotten more of the dim sum-y things to try. I got to sample the green fried rice and the quinoa bibimbap, which were both great and very fresh and full of veggies. The lamb noodles were also really good, though not as spicy as the menu suggested.
The generous spirit, assured competence and good taste of the M+C, Flour identity come through. I would personally enjoy the experience more if it were quieter. "Energetic" is polite description. Objectively, it is loud, including the banging coming from the open kitchen, music, and loud conversations required to even be heard. I still like it, but have to go alone or with strong voiced companions.
First time dining at Myers + Changs after hearing so many rave reviews from friends. Very busy on a Saturday night; It seemed like a nice place where people enjoy their meals and taking their time. Even though we had made online reservations, we waited to be seated 30 minutes later. Staff was friendly and apologetic about it. It felt like servers were short-staffed that night watching them whir and run around to take orders/drinks, wait on tables and clear them out. So service wasn't top-notch.. I felt bad for them.
Their cocktails are delicious! Food was excellent and reasonably priced. I'm used to traditional authentic Asian cuisine and felt that the dishes were prepared really well with a twist. I would prefer to go back on a less-busy night.
One of us is allergic to garlic. The choices for him were very slim but they did manage to prepare a very plain piece of Salmon (cooked nicely) with white rice. Brussel sprouts were fair and a dish with beef, quinoa, kimchi, string beans and edamame was not what I expected - too much quinoa, hardly any beef or kimchee, whole string beans were tough and the texture of edamame was not a good choice for the dish - a huge amount of quinoa with small bits of additional ingredients except the whole beans.
The waiter was pleasant and helpful as was the staff.
A cute place but am I the only person in Boston who would like to go out for a casual, $$ dinner and be able to engage in interesting audible conversation? What's with the super loud music at so many restaurants!!
Food was completely underwhelming. While the menu sounded super interesting and the ingredients were clearly high quality, every dish seemed to be missing something and generally lack flavor.
We had a reservation, but still had to wait 20 minutes for our table.
My biggest issue was the poor training of the staff. Somehow every single server managed to drop plates on the floor next to our table throughout the night. My feet were covered in other people's food! Yuck!!!
Impossible not to enjoy this place. I’ve eaten here a million times and the menu has never managed to be boring. It’s got the right mix of traditional Chinese and modern Asian fusion dishes. This time I brought someone with a Gluten intolerance and they went out of their way to help, with a separate menu that labels safe items as such and they used color-coded plates to bring GF food to the table.
This was our first visit, but won't be our last! My friend and I stopped there for lunch. She's vegetarian, and they have a separate and excellent vegetarian menu. She ordered the spring rolls, pickled cucumbers, and roasted brussels sprouts. I ordered the Nasi Goreng. All were excellent. I make Nasi Goreng at home, so it's a real treat when I find someone who makes it well. Myers & Chang's was great - Pineapple!!! We'll definitely go back, and bring our husbands next time. I highly recommend it.
I found this restaurant via The Infatuation and we couldn't have been happier. The quality of food was outstanding, the service / staff were so friendly and helpful and the vibe was great. I'd definitely recommend this restaurant to anybody who likes a cool place with highly flavorful and delicious pan Asian food.
My friend was in town and he has lots of allergies: mushrooms, beans, cheese-....and he doesn't drink or eat pork. We went over to my favorite joint M&C and they hooked him up with a special menu (okay, it was the regular menu with most of the items crossed off!). But who cares-- we ate well and he was happy. The service was outstanding, people are so nice and the crowd is a good mix of hipsters and neighborhood people.
I had heard a lot about this restaurant from colleagues and was looking forward to having lunch with my daughter for her birthday (though didn't want to do anything 'birthday-ish' at the restaurant). We came in for dim sum on a Sunday late afternoon. We were very excited and ordered a ton of stuff off the dim sum list. Unfortunately there wasn't a single item that was a stand out. We got the lemony shrimp dumplings (probably the best thing we had), edamame dumplings (my daughter liked these best), hot and sour soup (was ok) , market greens (were ok), kimchee quinoa, street corn and a noodle dish. Absolutely NOTHING stood out.
Maybe we just didn't order the best choices- but neither one of us was impressed with any of it.
I might try it again for the dinner menu but there are so many other places to try - unfortunately my initial experience definitely doesn't call me back :-( I wanted to like it.
Meh...over rated or off night?
Super duper excited to eat here!
I had been eyeballing the menu figuring out my eating strategy.
Serious hots for the Green Curry lobster and was talked into the "Best" mussels in Boston by the waitress - so I get a half order and "classic" pork chive dumplings.
My first clue was there was NO Chinese people eating here. It was waaaaay to hop with dim lighting and triphop music in the background.
First thing out was pickled veggies - deliciously crispy crunchy tart and spicy.
Next out was the dumplings - the ratio was ok however the filling was undercooked and way too soft without a hint of ginger or garlic or white pepper - blah bland-o!
Half order of mussels arrive and I'm optimistic again. 4 of those babies were not opened so I tossed those out. Grilled garlic bread was burnt on edges and soggy in the middle - wahhhhhh!
The broth was not special at all as I was secretly hoping...I wanted the broth to have a sweet smooth spicy clean green coconutty lemongrassy deliciousness and it was not to be had...sadly it was salty thick with way too long strands of basil plus the mussel were small and gritty.
Next time I'm in Boston I'll head to a local joint filled with Chinese in Chinatown!
