Tung Hoy Restaurant in Larchmont

RangerRick Nov 21, 2011 06:22 PM

Since Tung Hoy closed several years ago, I have been searching for a Chinese restaurant in Westchester that made Wonton Soup, Spare Ribs, or Egg Rolls that were similar to Tung Hoy. I'm not looking for the best soup, ribs, or egg rolls, but ones that come close to Tung Hoys' taste. Any suggestions?

    After the 90's and their move up the road, even Tung Hoy wasn't Tung Hoy anymore. I've looked and followed many of the recs here and cannot find a place yet in the area that does the old-fashioned kitschy "Chinese Restaurant" thing too well. Everything now is regional, fusion etc.-and not very good.

      30 years from now people will say "What happened to all those great spots with the chicken teriyaki and california rolls and salad with the choice of miso or wonton soup?" "I loved their tofu and sambal!"

      You would think out of some decency one of the asian fusion magnates would keep a Tung Hoy-like place open just for the nostalgia, even if it wasn't a great money maker. The die hards I know say Golden Gate in Riverdale is the area's last vestige. Golden Wok in Ardsley and David Chen's in Armonk are 80s style, but more Hunan-like with token Cantonese American dishes.

      Short answer: It's dead Jim (I mean Rick) and not coming back.

        What about Lem Yen in Mamaroneck? I've not eaten there, but their website advertises that they make "old school Cantonese-American" food.

          I didn't think of Lem Yen, it is probably the best choice for this type of food in the area that I am aware of.

            It's Lum Yen and also any of the to-go places in Mamk on Mamk do what you are asking for. Lum Yen is the only place I would dine at though.

          The little take out place near us does these things as I remember them from many years ago -- and I assume others of that ilk may also. You wouldn't want to eat in there, of course. The one we go to is Young's Chinese Kitchen on Post Rd in White Plains. Since you mention a Mamaroneck restaurant, I assume Young's would not be convenient for you, but you could try some closer to you, for these kinds of items, at least.

            I live in Larchmont and was never such a great fan of the place...which I considered O.K. We havr gotten better dishes of the type you mention at the Take-Out place, New China, on Larchmont Avenue, in Larchmont. None of this, of course, compares with Joe's Shanghai in Flushing or NYC.
