Best Dishes in Chinatown
Haven't seen a recent thread on this. I'm looking for true all-star dishes and the restaurants that serve them. I would start with:
XLB - Dumpling Cafe
Sliced Fish Szechuan Stlye - GDH
3 Course Peking Duck - China King
Roast Beef with Scallions Roll in Scallion Pancake - Taiwan Cafe
Maybe I'd add some Szechuan dish at New Shanghai, salt and pepper anything at Peach Farm or some particular Dim Sum at Winsor, but would really like to get specific thoughts from CH's. Thanks.
I'm a big fan of East Ocean's version of Alaskan King Crab with chilli and salt but it won't come cheap. If you are dining with four or more people it gets more reasonable. They keep the crabs alive in tanks so they are very fresh and sweet when they are served but definitely a special occasion dish
I recently switched it up and got the "Beef in Szechuan Sauce" at GDH, which is essentially "Sliced Fish Szechuan Style" but with beef instead of fish (not sure why they don't call it "Sliced Beef Szechuan Style," but that's besides the point). I have been dreaming about it ever since. Definitely top on my list of favorite Chinatown dishes.
- Kimchi fried rice w/ quail egg at Shojo
- Suckling pig bao at Shojo
- Hot pot w/ Mala broth at Q
