Best Chinese Food in Portland, ME???
I moved to Portland 2 years ago from New York and have yet to find great chinese food. I have found decent but not great. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated since I have been spoiled by whole life with great chinese food in my hometown and love it!
Thank you in advance!
You can't find it because there isn't any. When you need a fix, go to Boston: there's really nothing closer. As you've been here for two years, you'll know that there is adequate Thai and Vietnamese, but that's all.
It was the first question I asked when we moved here. The consensus seemed to be that Lotus in Falmouth sucked the least, especially at dinner. Still............I just wait til I hit NYC and go nuts. It is crazy in such a foodie town and you KNOW the ingredients can be had -- eg, Hong Kong Market. Maybe someday!!!!
BTW Chia Sen is the only Chinese restaurant in Maine that does fake-meat vegetarian dishes. We're fond of the veggie pork with black bean sauce. Find the veggie beef to be the least successful. None of it is as good as any of the Buddhist veggie places in Boston, NY or Philly, but hey, it's Maine.
