Snow-filled hole in Chinatown

Snow-covered sinkhole in Chinatown in Boston.

Bobby Main shows us the Washington Street sinkhole in Chinatown this evening. It opened up early this morning and tried to eat a DPW truck.

My life flashed

Swear to Jeebus, I walked over that exact spot two days ago on my way to lunch at Dumpling Cafe. Crab/pork soup dumplings (best XLB in Chinatown), three essences chicken legs, roast beef scallion pancake. Way better than the gwailo-favored Gourmet Dumpling House up the block. (The nearby Taiwan Cafe is DC's equal on most dishes, beats it on a few.) In retrospect, I would gladly have fallen into and climbed out of that hole for that lunch. Ridiculously, consistently great Taiwanese food at popular prices.

Taiwan Cafe had closed for a year

Many fans like me feared it would never reopen, as with so many "closed for renovations" spots. Glad to report they did reopen, and it looks much shinier than the old dump. Menu is as good as it ever was. If you like Dumpling Cafe, you should get back to Taiwan Cafe at some point, too.
