Peach Farm Restaurant Review

: Sure, you can find traditional Chinese dishes at Peach Farm, but most devotees, especially late-night chefs, head to this Chinatown hideout for the live fish tank. Make your selections, and the chefs prepare fish and shellfish any way you like. Why do a pu pu platter when you can try steamed black fish or pan-fried sea conch? The kitchen excels at some very unusual dishes like stewed abalone and Hong Kong-style sirloin. In addition, it serves some of the best steamed oysters in black bean sauce and spicy, dry-fried salted squid in all of Boston. Other seafood dishes include sizzling flounder, sliced fish and Szechuan-style shrimp. Non-seafood favorites include braised duck, ginger and scallion beef, and chicken in Peking sauce. Service can be a bit brusque, and servers might be less than eager to introduce the more authentic, off-the-menu dishes. But be firm in your adventurousness, and you'll be rewarded with a satisfying experience.
