  9. Kung Fu Ramen (49th and 8th)
    Awesome soup dumplings, duck buns, and scallion pancakes. Not sure why the word ramen is in the name (wasn't my fave)

    Only one visit but it was top notch. Only reason I haven't returned is because it's on E 37th St.

  18. Joe's Shanghai

    All due respect to Alexandra Fiber, but the soup dumplings at Joe's are not to be trifled with. Also, two locations (Chinatown, 56th between 5th & 6th) make getting one in your mouth convenient.

    7th ave and 10th st in Bklyn. Extremely speedy.

  24. Totally agree with @dave re: The Cottage - my 2 dish recommendations are - pork and string beans and chicken with eggplant. Plus well located to pair with a movie at 68th and Bway.
    Suggested by @Goldie
  25. Shanghai Cafe on Mott
    The best soup dumplings in Manhattan. Try to score a seat at a communal table so you can see what looks good- menu descriptions are beyond vague.

  26. Oriental Garden
    Best authentic Cantonese in NYC, with a particular emphasis on seafood. Outstanding.

    Red Farm's sister restaurant with Peking Duck prix fixe menu. Located underneath Red Farm's West Village location. Make a reservation for 2,3, or 4 people. Great food and cocktails.

  28. Savor Sichuan
    A close second to Szechuan Gourmet when it comes to Midtown Chinese. The scallion rice is THE THING.

    Excellent Szechuan in Chelsea! Very possibly the best dan dan noodles in NYC.
