Define Boston area - I'm willing to drive, but... Gene's Chinese Flatbread Cafe, Sichuan Gourmet (both original locations), FuLoon in Malden and Chilli Garden in Medford. I'm looking forward to trying Mulan in Waltham, but have not yet been. I'm less familiar with Taiwanese cuisine. PS: I am privy to an email chain among Chinese immigrants listing their faves town by town, but I don't read written Chinese, so I usually borrow a translator. Someday I will share.
