Help! Top Notch Chinese Needed

Thanks for the info. I had a spring roll appetizer, although the outside was crispy the inside was totally mushy. My husband had the Szechuan dumplings....3 on the plate. Never experienced that amount before. He ordered the General Tso's chicken which consisted of 85% water chestnuts and small amount of diced pieces of chicken. Needless to say he was very disappointed in the dish. I had one of the evening shrimp specials which was ok. We ordered off the regular menu, not the early bird one. We've eaten in many excellent Chinese restaurants before and were very disappointed in this one. The prices charged did not meet the food quality, that is what was disappointing.

Help! Top Notch Chinese Needed

As snowbirds that just moved into the Boynton Beach area we are looking for a really good Chinese restaurant in the area. Willing to drive as well. Based on recent reviews we just tried Uncle Tia's in Boca. Overpriced and overrated! We've had better takeout in the NY/NJ area. Especially looking for a place with Peking Duck. Thanks for the help.

Gelatto shops near Spring Lake

Just wondering if anyone knows of any really good gelatto places near Spring Lake? There was a shop in Asbury Park on Cookman Avenue that had a outstanding biscotti gelatto. They changed owners about a year ago and prices changed as well. The new place doesn't seem quite up to the old place that we truly enjoyed.....

Spring Lake

Whispers in on the Restaurant.com coupon site. Wouldn't dine there otherwise, food overprice and the atmosphere it abit on the "stuffy" side. Have often seen local resident/author Mary Higgins Clark there. Tends to drawn an older crowd. Black Trumpet, Brandl's in Belmar, or even Daniel's Bistro in PPB...reservations a must.
