Xmas day Chinese dinner (downtown)

Any suggestions for downtown Chinese food on the 25th, will be myself and gf, doing something different for us this year....was thinking asian legend or e-pan, we probally won't be able to wait too long and this meal will be late afternoon-ish...I would like to try a new place...haven't been super impressed by swatow, rol san, new sky in the past...oh, and not dumplings -- I eat those waaay to often already!

Thanks & Happy Holidays to all you CH's!

  1. Hua Sang on Baldwin? Definite hits are the lobster and the hot pot dishes.

      ..thanks xtal, haven't been there before...

        You're welcome. There's also a seafood soup which is quite good. A clear delicate broth with loads of tasty seafood inside. Best with a touch of heat from their chili oil.

          ...you're definatly selling me on this place!

            One request. Be sure to report back if you end up going there. I'd love to hear other people's opinions on the place.

              Aren't there are two on Baldwin if I recall? Isn't the other one Wah Sing?
              Have you been to this one xtal? The menu sounds similar.

                Wah Sing is the one that's at street level, and Hua Sang is a few steps below street level. I've been to Hua Sang numerous times, and Wah Sing once or twice. They're both quite good, but I prefer Hua Sang.

    2. I read about A Taste of China on this board (on Spadina close to Bright Pearl) and now it's our family's current favourite (next to E-Pan). Just there tonight and had a Seafood combo - 3 dishes for $38. We picked lobster with ginger and scallions, sauteed grouper on gailan greens, and deep fried oyster and tofu cubes - all are good. (I don't know if the combo menu is available in English or not.) One thing to avoid there is Peking Duck. The duck is so-so but the pancakes are next to inedible.
