  1. My family's go-to place for lobster noodles in Chinatown is New Mayflower (http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/789996). Been going back there for decades.

    But the best lobster noodles I'd had recently wasn't in Chinatown, but at Kai Mayfair (http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/902581) and also Pearl Liang (http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/629949).

    Not sure if New Mayflower also does chilli crab (which is more SE Asian-Chinese than Cantonese) but some of the wait-staff I spoke to recently are Chinese-Malaysians - so hopefully, they may also have a couple of Chinese-Malaysian chefs in there who can do the dish.
