With its fire-engine red awning and “Grand Opening!” banner, China King beckons to diners. You may step inside because the place still looks brand new and shiny (it opened in April), but you will come back for homemade dumplings, scallion pie, and noodles. And if you plan ahead, for excellent Peking duck.
Owners Erwin and Doris Mei are not newcomers to the Boston restaurant scene. They own King Fung Garden 2 in Brookline, and they were behind the original (now closed) King Fung Garden. At China King, Doris Mei is at the front of the house, and Erwin Mei, and his brother, Ken, are in the kitchen, sending out all kinds of homemade specialties.
