The names above this South End diner’s door are those of Boston culinary power couple Joanne Chang and restaurateur Christopher Myers, but it’s executive chef Karen Akunowicz who harmonizes Myers+Chang's mash-up of Chinese, Taiwanese, Thai, and Vietnamese cuisines. The menu’s reference to “dim sum–y things” hints at the casual atmosphere as well as the fun spin on street food—shareable bites include spicy tuna poke and dan-dan noodles (cold Taiwanese style or spicy hot Szechuan), Thai pork lettuce wraps, and lemon-shrimp dumplings. Another nod to street food and the restaurant’s youthful clientele are the pocket-friendly prices: Small plates come in mostly under $20.
