Boston Eats: Bubor Cha Cha @ Chinatown

On the last day my friend, Chipmunk, was here, we decided to end the trip with more lobsters! We’ve already been to Alive and Kicking, and so we wanted something completely different, and decided to try some Chinese-style lobsters. What are Chinese-style lobsters? I don’t know, but when we ordered, we were given a few options, and we chose (what we thought) was the least pungent one–scallions and ginger–so that we can still enjoy the beautiful aroma of fresh lobster! Coincidentally, they also had dim sum for lunch, and so we ordered some bits of dim sum too. This is a lot of food for 2 people.


Fried Dough with Steamed Rice Noodle (Zha Liang) – $3.75: Good and not very oily! The you tiao is still crispy inside. Thumbs up!


Twin Lobsters with Scallion and Ginger – $26.95: The lobsters were deep fried, then stir-fried again in scallions and ginger. They were a tad overcooked for my taste, but the scallion and ginger was a really good compliment to the fresh lobster. It really ‘lifted’ the dish, and made the lobster very very fragrant. I would order these again, but I prefer just plain steamed lobsters.


Prawn Dumplings (Har Gao) – $3.75: Not bad. The shrimp inside was not a full shrimp, but smaller chunks of shrimp. Taste good. The skin is a little thick though.


Braised Tofu Lunch Set – $6.90: This came with rice. Tasty tofu with a lot of different ingredients in the mix–mushrooms, minced pork, carrots, peppers, scallions etc. Quite good, but nothing special. Good value though!


Century Egg Porridge (Pei Dan Chok) – $3.50: Good watery porridge. Needs more pork flavor and less salt!
