At All Seasons Table in Malden, you can sip scorpion bowls at the long bar and order pan-Asian food until just before last call. The endless menu includes surprises like thin-crust sushi pizza tempura, seaweed, and rice topped with salmon, tuna, and crab meat, all doused in avocado sauce. A suburban Chinatown is what owner Douglas Tran envisioned when he opened a short walk from the commuter rail three years ago. People work in Boston all day, they dont want to go back, he says.
