Lunch in Chinatown

ScoobySnacks20 Jul 19, 2012 06:35 AM

I'm looking for an exciting place to eat in chinatown for lunch.

I know Beijing, House of Noodles and the Pho places, but what else is there (non dim sum, non buffet) that is choworthy?

I'd love to find a place heavy on the sichuan peppers, light on the oil if at all possible.

    When you find that place, be sure to try the unicorn soup. ;)

      try the kung pao chicken or shrimps at niu kee. IIRC the chicken is on the bone

      here is a picture of the shrimps : http://smurfmatic.net/blog/pics/kung....

      i haven't had this dish in a while but i went to niu kee not long ago and while not at its 2008 splendor, it is once again chow worthy.

        Little Sheep Mongolian Hot Pot is good, I find, and the spicy broth is exciting.
