In Search Of: "Other" Solid Cantonese in Manhattan Chinatown

i find it to be one of the most consistent restaurant in chinatown although that's not saying much as chinatown is for the most part pretty inconsistent, give it a whirl, im going to re-review it at some point

well i'm talking from a consistency across the board standpoint. i like specific dishes on cafe hong kong's menu not everything. although clearly very different types of food

i think i actually like noodle village the best out of any cantonese place in chinatown, different than the various family style places you've mentioned, but its the most consistent across the board

i ate at first house, the dishes were mixed, but there were some hits, i need to go back a couple more times though

What's better in Singapore vs Penang?

sanur has a bunch of kueh and some other stuff like kaya in front. their kueh lapis are just ok (they always have those), but i generally like their ang ku kueh, which they usually have. Sometimes like they have special kueh like kueh dadar and i think they make a pretty respectable version, but they only have it on occasion

you can actually get it at Sanur in the city (it's similar)...really easy since it's chinatown. they also sell various kueh

when i come back from asia, i usually get like cookies or something that travels well (dried type stuff) to bring back for relatives and friends. i'm trying to think

klyeoh, M_Gomez - can you think of nice traditional snacks that travel well? i'm kind of blanking, but ill think of something

Calling ScoopG, Lau, et al. 飯團 in Flushing?

Hey Mr Taster - sorry to hear that. so sounds like you want taiwanese breakfast. unfortunately i believe king 5 closed which i would've told you to go to, but instead here's where i'd go:

No 1 east: i haven't been here in a long time, but its well known and considered one of the better places http://www.yelp.com/biz/no-1-east-res...

Nan xiang: I haven't tried nan xiang's breakast, but they have it and i suspect it's decent bc i've had their dou jiang which was pretty good
http://www.yelp.com/biz/nan-xiang-dum...

House of yun ho: this place maybe closed (i haven't been to the flushing mall in a long time), but if its not it was decent in particular they had good dan bing
