The "Lunch in Harvard Square" Blog - Restaurant Reviews

Since starting to work in the Square in mid-August, I'm trying to eat lunch at a new restaurant every day until I can't find any more. Here's my list of the Top Ten Lunch Restaurants in Harvard Square (Food Only). Got a suggestion on a new lunch spot for me? New Restaurants to Try in Harvard Square.

44. 10-23 Yenching, 1326 Mass. Ave, corner of Holyoke and Mass Ave. Summary: Decent Chinese food, fair price.

I have been to Yenching only once before (that I can remember), way back in 1980. I was just a snot-nosed kid and refused to leave a tip because I didn't like the service. The waittress yelled loudly in Chinese, so I had to beat a fast retreat through the door. I've felt bad about that ever since!

All five of us made it to Yenching today, so we decided to eat in at the round table closest to Mass Ave (incidently, the same table I sat at 26 years ago - weird I can remember that!). Service was fine, except our lunches arrived over a range of about five minutes, so a few of us were halfway through when other lunches arrived.

Decent, predictable listings for both lunch and main meals. Including tip (!) we each paid $8.50.
