I usually get the braised pork shoulder (not on english menu) and the braised noodles with crab meat and young chives. plan on trying their soup dumplings too. anyone have other favorites? could anyone translate the chinese part of their menu?

    I like their sauteed rice cakes--the right chewy consistency, not mushy like some places.

    Cold dishes are very good, esp. Kau Fu.

          Fish head casserole was memorable

            Whole fish with ginger and scallion
            Bean curd skin with green bean and preserved veg (w/ minced pork)

            A few months ago they had this incredible special: a clay pot chicken with chestnuts!

            They have Dong Po Rou on the chinese menu, but the version at Nice Green Bo is far better.
