The seafood chowder ($6) at Peter Chen’s sultry pan-Asian restaurant is so creamy-yummy, you may swear off the New England version completely. Shrimp, scallops, and clams coalesce in a silky pool that’s chock full of coconut-milk broth with just a hint of sweetness. P.S.: for top-notch raw fish, check out Chen’s Toyo Sushi next door.
