Best of Boston

2011 Best Chinese Restaurant

Jojo Taipei

The finest Chinese around, it turns out, isn’t anywhere near Chinatown. JoJo specializes in Taiwanese cuisine, but there are enough options for every level of taste and bravery, from the traditional (pancake with scallion and roasted beef) to the adventurous (Szechwan pig intestines with tofu hot pot). For a sweet finish, try the bow bin—a shaved-ice dessert topped with beans, tapioca, grass jelly, and peanuts.
