Good Chinese in Upper Alphabet City?

douglas525 Apr 3, 2008 05:32 PM

With so many restaurants in my neighborhood, I'm flummoxed by the apparent lack just a simple, good Chinese place close enough to still be warm after a walk home. I've seen a couple of cornerstore slopslingers, but is there anything tasty in the immediate neighborhood for take-out? I'm really looking for something east of 2nd and between 8th and 14th. Thanks!!

      Grand Sichuan on St Marks between 2nd and 3rd has excellent chinese food. The Dan Dan noodles are great.

      I know it is slightly outside your zone, but worth the extra half block

        Yes, I second that, Grand Sichuan is good in all the branches I've been to around the city. Never been to the E. Village one, but I assume it's good as well.

        I Like our Our Kitchen on 14th between Ave A & B. I think they're actually Singaporean or something, but a great selection of chinese dishes.
