Twenty of our closest foodie friends (by which I mean very nice people we had never met before) joined us for Mystery Meet #2 at Myers + Chang in Boston’s South End. M+C is “a funky indie diner setting offering Chef/Owner Joanne Chang and Executive Chef Matthew Barros’s very personal interpretation of Chinese, Taiwanese, Thai, and Vietnamese specialties.” Eight dishes were served family style including the signature Tiger’s Tears, wok-roasted mussels, and everybody’s favorite dish, tea-smoked pork spare ribs. The main meal was followed by six shared desserts, ranging from a frozen vanilla bean parfait with fresh orange granita to a chocolate mousse with homemade 5-spice marshmallows. At the end of the evening, chef and owner Joanne Chang dropped by the table to chat with the foodies. All and all, a great evening.
Among the bloggers in attendance were Liz of Food to Run For, Emily of The Angry Little Chemist, Joyce of Boston Chomper, Kristen of Indulge Inspire Imbibe, Bianca of Confessions of a Chocaholic, Jen of Beantown Baker, Cynthia of Wicked Tasty Harvest, and Glenn and Katrin of Wine Dine with Us. David of Boston Chocolate Tours, and Adam and Jordan from Le Cordon Bleu also joined us for the party.

Specal thanks to Lee, the wonderful GM of Myers + Chang, who helped us put the whole thing together, and Joanne, co-owner and chef, who took a few minutes out from her busy night on the line to chat.
Overall, it was a really big week for Mystery Meet. In addition to our second dinner, we also exhibited at Mass Innovation Night in Waltham and we were profiled by the Clearly Creative Marketing Blog.
