Clay Pot Cafe Opens in Former King Fung Garden Space in Boston's Chinatown

A new Asian dining spot has opened in the Chinatown section of Boston, moving into the space where one of the city's most highly-regarded Chinese restaurants used to be.

According to a poster on the Chowhound site, Clay Pot Cafe is now open in the former King Fung Garden space on Kneeland Street, with the eatery featuring hot pot and clay pot rice dishes. A check on the Yelp site confirms their opening, with one poster saying that the cuisine here is apparently similar to Hong Kong street food, while the Chowhound poster mentions the food is what you might find in Taishan, a city near Hong Kong.

King Fung Garden was a landmark restaurant that was open from 1995 to 2008, reopening with the same name (but under different ownership) in late 2008 before closing again. The owners of the original King Fung Garden currently own King Fung Garden II in Brookline as well as China King in Chinatown.

The address for Clay Pot Cafe in Chinatown is: Clay Pot Cafe, 74 Kneeland Street, Boston, MA, 02111.
