For the few people who will get nostalgic pleasure out of this, a 1992 article from the Harvard Crimson in which I am extensively quoted about my love for the Hong Kong restaurant in Harvard Square. I still go there just about every time I’m in town, most recently with Steve Burt. The once-great “Top of the Kong” comedy club appears no longer to exist, sadly. Update: No, apparently there’s still a comedy club there, it just changed its name to The Comedy Studio!
Glossary for non-Boston people: “Peking ravioli” is New England nomenclature for fried dumplings, developed by Joyce Chen in order to get Italian people to come to her restaurant. If an entrepreneur of her caliber had ever lived in Milwaukee, I could probably get Shanghai spaeztle around here.
