Dolphin Bay

Overall taste: 7.5/10 | 2017 | 72 Brighton Ave, Allston, MA 02134

+++ = highly recommend | – – – = do not recommend

We’ve really like Taiwanese food, but there doesn’t seem to be that many Taiwanese restaurants in Boston. We’d really appreciate recommendations!

– – – Taiwanese sausages ($4.5) [This is very dry and a little tough. We had really good ones in Taiwan night markets, so we’re a little disappointed.]
Spicy wontons ($6.5) [Jeff is not a fan of the chilli oil but Lynn loves it. It’s hard to describe but it’s a little spicy and a little vinegary.]
Popcorn chicken ($4.5) [We had this at 3 separate occasions. It was great at the 1st two occasions, but the last time we ordered it, it was dry and wasn’t well-fried. Overall, we really like Taiwanese-style fried chicken; we haven’t KFC since we’ve tried this.]
Beef shank stew ($6.5) [this was served cold, and we thought it’s going to be a stew, not drizzled with chilli oil. When we tried it in the restaurant, it was tough and dry. When we heat it up and tried it at home, it was sooooooooo good. The meat became tender and juicy. This is just our preference but we think this dish tasted much better warm]
+++ Small pork rice ($3.5) [we really like this, plus the serving is pretty generous for the price. There are 2 sizes for this dish and we recommend getting the appetiser portion.]
Oyster pancake ($6.5) [We felt there wasn’t enough oysters and it’s way too greasy.]
+++ Shaved ice – toppings: ice cream, pineapple, milk pudding, egg pudding ($9.99 for 4 toppings) [Some people just come in for their desserts. The picture doesn’t show it but this can definitely be shared among 4 people]
