        Depends where you decide to go. I've tried these 4 in the past, some more often than others. Here's what I recommend:

        Lin Garden- Crispy Beef Kam-Bien, Kan Shue Green Beans and their pakoras are usually pretty solid.
        Tangerine- Pakoras are the best I've tried of any east end Hakka joint, most other food is oversauced (ask for it dry) and oily.
        Lucky- Chili Chicken
        Kim Kim- Hakka Tandoori Chicken

        Lucky, Kim Kim and Lin Garden all serve a similar Manchurian Fried rice which I like. None of the east end joints are a one stop shop as everyone seems to do certain dishes better than others IMO.
