Looking for an out-of-the-ordinary family dining experience? Cook your own dishes of thinly sliced meat, veggies, or tofu in a variety of flavored broths at Kaze Shabu Shabu in Chinatown. Because hot broth is involved, a meal here is probably better suited for older families.
In the area: Explore the sights and sounds of Chinatown. Check out our walking tour and neighborhood guide. Or, head to the nearby Boston Common for frisbee, cloud-gazing, or a stroll.
