China King Opening in Chinatown

3/11/2012 08:55:00 PM
I remember exactly when the King Fung Garden in Chinatown closed.  Needless to say that I'm pretty excited to try out the new China King. 

Erwin and Doris Mei are proud to announce the opening of China King in Boston's famed Chinatown. Located at the bustling corner of Oxford and Beach Streets, and just footsteps from the Chinatown Gate, China King will serve the dishes that made Chef/Owner Erwin Mei Chinatown’s best-known chef for over a decade, including Mei’s signature Peking Duck with homemade pancakes, presented in 3 courses: skin, stir-fry and soup.

China King marks a return to Chinatown for the Mei’s who owned and operated King Fung Garden from 1995-2008. The tiny restaurant attracted an enthusiastic cult following for its uncompromisingly authentic food and friendly service. Patrons included Lidia Bastianich, Emeril Lagasse, Marcus Samuelsson, Julia Child and virtually every top Boston chef—including Ken Oringer, Chris Schlesinger, Barbara Lynch, Daniel Bruce, Evan Deluty, Michael Schlow and Jasper White.

China King will serve all the dishes Erwin Mei popularized at King Fung Garden, including: Peking Ravioli, Steamed Pork Buns, Scallion Pie, Shanghai Chow Mein, Rice Cake with Pork and Pickled Cabbage, Sweet Pickled Jellyfish, Spicy Salt and Pepper Fried Squid, Pork with Pickled Mustard Greens and Hon Sue Lamb. The Tomato and Pork Soup is Mei’s re-creation of the tomato soup served at the legendary Carl’s Pagoda—the first time this soup has been served in Chinatown since Carl’s closed its doors two decades ago.
