SHU Restaurant

Serendipity [hate that word] but ended up here at SHU as Fire and Spice [new location] and East West Grille were both closed on Mondays. What a blessing that turned out to be. Tucked away between A Dong Market and Pho Boston is this little gem. It specializes in Authentic Chinese Szechuan Cuisine. Also has a superb Vegetable and Vegetarian menu.

I started with the Tomato Fried Egg Soup [$5.99] mainly because of the name. It was a super broth with sliced fresh tomatoes and a 'pancake' of fried egg on top. Super sized portion [we ordered the small] which was more than enough for two. Then I was having a noodle attack so ordered the Vegetable Lo Mein [$8.99] [my dining partner is vegetarian]. This was one of the best orders of lo mein that stands on its own merits and is not confused with the addition of lots of 'stuff'. The other entrée was Pork with Garlic Sauce [$12.99] whereas the 'pork' was a bean product and resembled noodles. The dish included wood ear mushrooms, bamboo shoots and red pepper. It had a slight zing to it and was delicious.
