Best of Boston
1998 Best Market, Asian
This is where shoppers from both the ‘burbs and Chinatown buy their lime leaves, shrimp balls, bok choy, and soy “pork,” in a Star Market-sized store crammed with tidy isles of Asian goods. Bilingual signs and a friendly staff make 88 accessible to the uninitiated; 10 minutes of wandering, and you’ll be ready to fire up the wok. No wok? Buy it here.
