Chinatown - Oriental Spice Blend
Boston’s Chinatown is located over a piece of reclaimed tidal flat. It is centered on Beach Street and is the third-largest Chinatown in the country. During the latter part of the 19th-century manufacturing plants moved in on Chinatown. This created Boston’s famous garment district, which stayed active until the 1990s. Chinatown continues to grow and evolve with the city today.
Boston Spice named this spice blend after this part of the city that is rich with culture. Our "Chinatown" spice combines ground star anise, licorice root, ground allspice, and ground coriander. This robust spice is excellent in so many dishes. Try it in stir fry’s, as a rub on chicken, country ribs, as a dip, vegetables, on popcorn, and even steak.
Boston Spice's "Chinatown" spice will transport your tastebuds to a whole new world.
During the land making process to expand the size of the Boston Massachusetts in the late 17th and early 18th centuries, some of the areas around what was called Boston neck were filled in to make solid usable land.
Boston neck was a narrow strip of land that connected the peninsula of Boston to the mainland. This area was made up of mostly marshy tidal flats. This new area was first settled by Anglo-Americans.
Around the 1840s, Jewish, Irish, Italian, Syrian, and Chinese immigrants started to settle in this new area.
During the late 19th century, more Chinese laborers were brought over to help with big construction projects that were going on in the area. Due to the massive influx of Chinese people, this area was known as the Chinese Colony of Boston.
The growth of Boston’s Chinatown boomed in the 1950s. Today, Boston’s Chinatown is the third-largest Chinatown in the United States.
