Obviously, price is no object and it can be fancy or a hole in the wall, etc.

Also, please detail your favorite dishes there.

  1. Mine is Shanghai Restaurant on the second floor of the Ranch 99 plaza. I like several dishes there, including the seaweed fried fish and everything they do with tofu.

    1. J&J (Jin Jiang): XLB; pork chop; I vaguely recall ordering the fried tofu there and enjoying it
      JYTH: lamb noodle soup (knife cut); cat's ears; scallion pancakes

      1. Hunan Mao - Spicy Fish Head
        Beijing Pie House - those juicy pies, beef or lamb
        Knife Cut noodles - JYTH
        Shufeng Garden - Water Boiled Fish
        Mei Long V. - Lamb's Head Meatball
        101 Noodle XPress - boiled dumplings, beef roll
