An unironic '80s flavor pervades this little Chinese restaurant on a bustling strip of East Broadway. A ring of neon lights casts a harsh glow on glass-topped tables with pink tablecloths as an almost all-Chinese clientele chow down on hearty, extremely affordable dishes. The dining room is long and narrow, with giant photos of entrees interspersed with wood carvings of Chinese characters, all ending at a large mural of golden dragons in back. This isn't the food you¹ll find at the touristy joints along Canal Street. Rabbit with egg noodles, taro and duck noodle soup, mutton with Chinese "New Year's cake" (a soft, chewy rice-based cake), and tripe with rice noodles are all things most tourists would balk at. The fish tanks in front provide the crab and fish for dishes like the crab with mei fun noodles and fried fish over rice.—Keith Wagstaff
