Myers + Chang is a funky indie diner setting offering Chef/Owner Joanne Chang and Christopher Myers's very personal interpretation of Chinese, Taiwanese, Thai, and Vietnamese specialties. At Myers + Chang, we focus on sourcing fresh, beautiful, local-when-possible ingredients, using lighter sauces, and giving you either fun and innovative takes on classic dishes, or creating new dishes that stay true to the flavors of the region.<br /><br><br><br />We are inspired by Taiwanese soul food and Southeast Asian street food, all done with a great deal of care. It is a personal, sometimes loose interpretation, to be sure, but our criteria are simple: everything we make must be fresh, delicious, and addictive. We are passionate about sharing our love of this food with you.

"I'm not a Boston expert, but this place definitely had very good food and sits in the middle of a great neighborhood. We got there late, around 9:30PM on a Wednesday, so the place was pretty empty. The hostess was lovely, but I thought we would have gotten better service considering there were only a few tables full. It took the waiter a long time to come to us a second time, when we wanted to order food and wine. After that, he was very attentive and nice, though, and gave us good recommendations on the menu (noodles with quail egg, spicy eggplant, crispy brussel sprouts). The wine we got was good, too. I would definitely come back here."

"The food was good, but I expected better from these chefs, given their reputation and my love for their other restaurants. We started with the cauliflower and brussel sprouts, which were tasty but the portions were way too small for their price of $13 each and the hot chiles in the brussel sprouts made the taste too strong, in my opinion. Our entrees were good and I liked the presentation of the plates, but again the portions were too small for the price. The service was bad, but given the restaurant just rebranded and hired new staff, this seemed inevitable. I would go back one more time in a month or two as I would be interested to see if my experience improved."
