“Although Boston’s Chinatown is fairly small, the spicy Sichuan fish soup at Gourmet Dumpling House (52 Beach St.; 617/338-6223; dinner for two $30) is as addictive a dish as you can have anywhere in the world. At first you think the soup will be too strong, with all of the chili oil, peppercorns, and aromatics. But once you brave the second or third spoonful you just can’t stop.” —Ken Oringer, Clio
