Look what's hanging from the front of one of Rozzie's gazillion nondescript Chinese take-out places (on Belgrade Avenue near Walworth):
So could be cool, although that's what I said when Roslindale's only Vietnamese take-out place opened at that location, too.
Roslindale to get jazz cafe.
NaturalBlog presents the unified law of dim sum consumption:
... As you can see, the target for consumption is $10 per person, though that's tough to aim for since no one knows what anything costs. The standard deviation is $1. If you eat $14 worth as I did some time ago, you are four standard deviations away, meaning you must skip four meals for... Read more

Has anybody ever tried it? I have to admit we don't tend to stray from Golden House on Washington... Read more
... Rather than ordering dim sum from carts, at Green Tea you choose off of an extensive menu. Although you don't get the instant gratification of eating what you pointed as, as you do at Chau Chow City or China Pearl, the food is made to order.... Read more
... After my initial visit, which went very well, I returned again yesterday afternoon for lunch, to try some more dishes. That second visit was as pleasing as the first time. There will certainly be a third visit, and a fourth, fifth, etc. ...

Spring Blossom never really seemed to recover from the loss of business during the extended VFW Parkway sewer project. And now it's gone, forcing Westie types to drive into Dedham or South Brookline if they want more than just takeout.
Seth Gitell, whom I'm betting was eating Chinese food on Christmas long before "A Christmas Story" came out, rounds 'em up.
David Weinberger, meanwhile, explains why Christmas is actually a lovely time for the sort of people who would go out for Chinese:
... Christmas is a lovely time of the year for Jews in America, not because of all the decorations and... Read more
One thing Roslindale doesn't lack is Chinese take-out places. So it was kind of surprising to see yet another one open up, this one at the fortuitously numbered 888 South Street, where Tex's used to be, across from the old Longfellow School.
The other day, I gave Hong Kong Cafe 888 a try for lunch.
For $6.35 (including tax), I got a huge... Read more
Boston Chomps explains why that's Shangri La in Belmont.
Where Tex's Barbecue used to be, across from the former Longfellow School. Key question: Will it be just another take-out place or will they actually have seats? And, yes, I know, technically, you could actually eat at Golden House, but why?

Brookline Police charge a local man with gau'ing berserk at the Golden Temple on Beacon Street early Friday morning:

Jason McIntosh is loving the unassuming Chinese place in Porter Square:
... I just now had their eggplant chicken dish and the eggplant portion was represented by large, even slices that were still vibrant purple on one side, where many other places would have opted for colorless blobs of mush. This is the sort of thing that gets me very excited. And the chicken... Read more
