Good and lowish fat in Chinatown?

I'm on jury duty at 60 Centre St. next week. Any recs for good relatively low fat lunches in Chinatown? I'm doing Weight Watchers. (Easy and delicious if cooking at home and in summer, harder eating out and in winter.)

  1. Vegetarian dim sum platter at Dim Sum Go Go (a little walk but not bad at all). They are delicious and not oily at all.

      1. Vegetarian dim sum house, 24 Pell St., is the only vegetarian dim sum restaurant I know of in the country.

        1. IMO Dim Sum Go Go has better dim sum even when it comes to vegetarian dim sum. And since the OP is only on low fat diet and not restricted to just vegetarian dishes, I would also recommend the shrimp and seafood dim sum in Dim Sum Go Go. Most of the seafood and chicken dim sum there are very nicely prepared without excess oil like some other Chinese restaurants. I think as long as you stay away from fried items or things that are heavy in sauce, you will do fine!
