Red kuri squash soup
According to Globe food critic Devra First, "all of the soups at Myers+Chang ... are excellent. Red curry squash soup, a newer addition to the menu, is thick and rich. Its monochromatic orange belies the rainbow of flavors that hit your tongue with the first spoonful: autumnal squash, fragrant lemongrass, creamy coconut, and a zing of chili." Who could argue with that?
