Wor bor just got a little scarcer in the Boston area

Newton Patch reports the South Pacific in Newton has closed its doors. Fans have already put up a memorial page on Facebook.

Sounds like the Tahiti in Dedham might need a group hug.

Third that...

Whenever we (my brothers, my mother, their wives/girlfriends, and I) go to the Tahiti, the order is invariably Pu Pu for three, chicken fried rice, and Chicken Polynesian (where they still light the rum until it flames and pour it over the chicken...and I grab every lychee fruit I can get.)

Pu Pu here in West Roxbury is better than Liane's was in Hyde Park. Cathay Pacific when I temped across the street from BCBS is okay food. Chinatown on the Sharon/Canton/Stoughton lines is also good.

Best Chinese food, at least to me, was and still is Chef Chang's House in Brookline.

Eddie's China Pagoda on Dot Ave

No lounge. Retrofitted gas station ambience at the take out only window. But great American Chinese food like lo mein, boneless ribs, chicken fingers and crab
Comfort food indeed. I recommend the French fries and gravy.
Say hi to Eddie and Pete.

BTW, what's wor bor ?

Wondering when public health

Wondering when public health officials will study the relationship between the slow decline of Polynesian, Chinese-American restaurants and the obesity epidemic in Americans?

Haven't been to the Tahiti, but fondly recall the Honolulu in Norwood as well as the Kahana and Kihei Walpole.

FB Page

The outreach on the FB Memorial page has been nice to see. Lots of folks paying tributes to the place that served the best Scorpion Bowl in Newton.
