        I walked past by tonight and Its up and running. =)

    2. They have great peapod greens w/garlic in broth; house special chicken and two taste flounder are also very tasty.

      1. Oh no, really sorry to hear about fire!

        What to order: salt & pepper squid is great, and I love the congee w lobster & ginger (tho it may be a bit hot out for congee)

        1. you're probably not veggie- but if i recall correctly, i wasn't so fond of the mushroom and bean curd dish i had there....

          1. This is one of my fave Chinese restaurants in Manhattan (Queens has the more authentic ones, I believe). Anyway, try the HOUSE SPECIAL CHICKEN (seriously, this is a MUST -- even if you order just this and some hot rice, you'll go home happy!), the BAKED RICE WITH DICED CHICKEN AND SALTED FISH (tastes much better than it sounds), SHORT RIBS WITH BLACK PEPPER SAUCE IN SIZZLING PLATE, FLOUDER FILLET IN TWO TASTES, and CLAMS WITH BLACK BEAN SAUCE. enjoy!
