Dim Sum and Asian Fantasticness
I was wondering if anyone might be able to recommend a place or two that serves Asian food, say Chinese, that is so authentic that none of the wait staff speak english and you have no idea what you're eating as the steam carts roll by dropping off their little pieces of heaven right in front of you. The kind of place where you are the only non-asian person in the joint, and the tea is so kick ass (and full of green floating stuff) that you wouldn't even try to make it at home.... I know some places like this in Chinatown in Boston (The Golden Dragon is the absolute best!! They pull fish outta the big tank and cook em right there!! And there is a chicken stall outside where you can pick a live bird by pointing at it and the guy takes it out back and ummmm... well, gets it ready for your dinner table. Thats FRESH baby!!) but I haven't explored around VA or DC yet. Who's got the poop? If you respond to my email address, please put Chowhounds in the subject line, as I never open mail from places I don't recognize. Thanks gang!!
