A friend sent me to Hong Kong Eatery raving about the food, so of course, I was excited to give it a try. Located in Boston's China Town it had all the right reasons to go, including the look that just calls out to travelers looking for the authentic China Town experience. The soup, a beautiful clear broth with dumplings that had shrimp straining against the noodles to pop out, looked delicious...it was cold with a flavorless and flat taste. Roasted pork and duck were greasy, room temperature, and the flavor was not there. The highlight of dinner was the spicy string beans with roasted pork, they were steaming when they arrived at the table, and I couldn't stop popping them in my mouth. In retrospect, I don't know if that is because there really were that good, or if it was just due to starvation and finally having a smidge of flavor to sample.
If you are thinking about going to Hong Kong Eatery, stop, turn around, and find somewhere else to indulge your desire for China Town food.
