Take it from the pink window-dragon that scales the restaurant, this place is not a local secret anymore. Myers and Chang puts a twist on tradition. Exciting all pallets that enter with intriguing and unique flavors, they consistently hold dear the traditional ways of Asian cooking. Of Taiwanese descent, co-owner Joanne Chang is an incredibly successful restaurateur, and known globally for her sweets at Flour Bakery and Café. She has been awarded a James Beard award for “Outstanding Baker” in 2016 and is a beloved Boston figure. Joanne, along with her husband, Christopher Myers are the masterminds behind Myers and Chang, and with one taste of the cold Taiwanese-style Dan Dan noodles and you will understand why this restaurant causes such a flock all year long!
Regardless of whether you are solo (read more about solo dining here below) or with a larger group, have allergies or special accommodations, the feeling and service remains the same. The servers are wonderfully in-tune with your needs, offering unparalleled attention to each guest and special request. Each dish is brought out as it is ready, and guests are encouraged to share, an homage to several Asian culture’s “family style” tradition.
One thing that I absolutely love about Myers and Chang is how welcoming it is to dine solo. Yes, the service style is geared towards sharing, but the servers and kitchen work together to make sure that solo diners experience the magic of Myers and Chang the same way that a large group would. It’s always a good idea to make a reservation, regardless of the day of the week or party size. This place is packed come 7pm on any night!
