Boston Restaurant Blog -- November, 2005

Just got back from New Taste of Asia in Brookline. All I can say about this little Coolidge Corner restaurant is, WOW! New Taste of Asia is an authentic Chinese restaurant in a tiny space on Beacon Street. The digs aren't elegant by any means, but it's all about the food here. We had a number of dishes at New Taste of Asia, including an incredibly fresh wonton soup, some of the best vegetable dumplings around, a simply amazing Singapore noodle entree, and a red-hot but delicious chili chicken dish.
I'm not sure that New Taste of Asia is my absolute favorite Chinese restaurant in the Boston area (that may have to go to King Fung Garden in Chinatown), but I could see it being number 2 or 3, which is high praise indeed, with the likes of restaurants like East Ocean City, also in Chinatown, Shanghai Gate in Allston, and Qingdao Garden in North Cambridge. One note: Qingdao Garden's dumplings may be better than those at New Taste of Asia. But Im not sure anyone in Boston has dumplings as good as Qingdao Garden.
If you are looking for the address for New Taste of Asia, it is: New Taste of Asia, 1393 Beacon Street, Brookline, MA 02446; the phone number is (617) 730-3888.
A quick update: New Taste of Asia in Brookline has closed. I keep hearing rumors about the owners opening a new restaurant somewhere else in the Boston area, but for now, sadly, another great restaurant has shut its doors.
