Best Chinatown Restaurant
What is your favorite restaurant in Chinatown? Not Dim Sum or noodles. What's your favorite dish there?
When I ate Roast Duck over Rice at a restaurant on Canal St. east of Broadway, I thought that was the most delicious thing I had ever had. Try that one!
Wonton Garden on Mott for sweet and sour roast pork stewed with noodles.
Wong's on Mott (the one below Canal) for Roast pork omelet over rice.
New Green Bo for soup dumplings, Shanghai over rice, and the shrimp over sizzling rice.
Grand Manna Bakery on Grand for coffee and gai mei bao.
These are all small places, nothing fancy but the above dishes are reliable and, for me, comfort food.
well, its in chinatown, so deserves to be mentioned... pho viet huong....best pho (the trick is getting the broth right) in manhattan. and 16 versions for $5 bucks each. unbeatable.
I'd also mention that although its not the best in food - shanghai kitchen is excellent and most importantly for those of us with kids - very kid friendly. New Green Bo for example, with its industrial flourescent lighting and communal seating is not... and btw, the food at SK is very good, considering the competition.
