Sunset Park Chinese

  • a

Last weekend we were introduced by Howard Isaccs and
his wife Nadia to Jade Plaza in Sunset Park. I am
amazed that someplace of its quality (and size!) could
have been around with my having not a clue. What other
restaurants in the area would you recommend? I went to
Gai Lam once years ago, but that was it till last week.

    Try Ocean Empire at 54th and 8th for Dim Sum, but go
    early on the weekends

      Had Dim Sum at Jade Plaza this morning. I find it superior to many other places in the area, and they do not slack at dinner or lunch either. Another, less western-friendly (and therefore cheaper!) place is T & C which is around 56th St. The food there is very fresh and as close to Hong Kong as I have tasted. I personally do not like the food at the other big place, Ocean Palace. Last time I was there I could taste headache-sized amounts of MSG in the food. The Malaysian place on 54th and 8th also is very good, especially for hainese chicken.
