Friendship BBQ Replaces Jo Jo Taipei in Allston

A barbecue spot in Boston's Chinatown that features skewers of meat has opened a second location, and this one replaces a Taiwanese restaurant in Allston.

According to a poster within the Friends of Boston's Hidden Restaurants Facebook group page, Friendship BBQ is now open in the former Jo Jo Taipei space on Brighton Avenue, joining its original location on Harrison Avenue. Based on the menu at the Chinatown outlet, the new location likely offers a variety of skewers and it may also serve such items as grilled fish, seafood boils, rice noodles, tripe, grilled quail, and more.

Jo Jo Taipei first opened its doors back in 2008.

The address for the new location of Friendship BBQ in Allston (and the old Jo Jo Taipei) is 103 Brighton Avenue, Allston, MA, 02134. The website for the Chinatown location of Friendship BBQ can be found at https://friendshipbbqboston.com/
