Some of Boston's best Chinese restaurants are tucked into the 'burbs, and one of the best is Shangri-La in Belmont. Serious Eats, stopping in for their weekend Taiwanese dim sum brunch, concurs: "The menu is vast: everything from pig ear salad, to crispy shao bing, to fried chitterlings, to popular xiao long bao (soup dumplings)." Not to mention, parking is way easier than in Chinatown. And just like that, we've made our Sunday plans. [SE]
