Best Cheap Chinese Lunch, Queens (2008)

Jade King

The decor is minimal, but you're not at the JADE KING to savor the surroundings, you're there to chow down on the cheap and cheerful fare that draws a lunchtime crowd. Forget the wonton soup on the $4.75 lunch menu and begin with a hot-and-sour soup that actually lives up to its name. Then move on to one of the 25 choices offered, like enough General Tso's chicken to feed his army or a dish of scallops and garlic dense with mollusk. The traditional fortune cookie serves for dessert, and you won't need to read it to know that you've made a dining find. 192-03 Union Turnpike, Queens, 718-468-5900 Jessica Harris
