In the numerical battle for Peking Ravioli, only one can survive
We finally got a chance last night to try Seven Star Street Bistro, Roslindale's newest Chinese takeout place (is there some zoning code we don't know about that prohibits sit-down Chinese restaurants in Rozzie?).
The Hunan Sesame Chicken was wonderful. So was the Steamed Black Forbidden Rice (is the "forbidden" stuff crack? Because I didn't want to stop eating it). I feel my connection to Golden House on Washington Street wavering.
The Peking Ravioli, though? They were OK, but the dumpling part was kind of flavorless - only dipping them in the Hunan Sesame Chicken sauce really redeemed them. In contrast, the Peking Ravioli at Number 7 Chinese Food in West Roxbury represent Peking Ravioli perfection - it's hard to stop stuffing them in your mouth. I'm getting hungry just writing about them (Golden House doesn't offer them at all).
