Good Chinese restaurants in Philly

Thank you very much for the replies-much appreciated. I'm keen to try Han Dynasty and it sounds as though Sang Kee is still the place for duck.

Good Chinese restaurants in Philly

Hi. I've returned to Philly after some years away and was wondering if I could get some recommendations as to where are now the best places to go in Chinatown. I used to love the duck at Sang Kee but heard it's not what it used to be 10 years ago. So any ideas/recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Heirloom tomatoes

Hello. I really would appreciate it if someone could let me know where I can get really good heirloom tomatoes in Philadelphia-just can't find any good ones. Many thanks

Discontinued at Trader Joe's (started 6/19/2011) [old]

Trader Joe' reminds me of a comment a friend of mine once made about IKEA. " They have some great things but ones has to be selective as they have an awful lot of crap"

Malt vinegar

Hello: Would anyone know where I can buy about 3 pints of malt vinegar in the Philadelphia area? I'm making chutney and the recipe calls for this vinegar specifically. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Barclay Prime - A big disappointment!

I went to Barclay Prime last Wednesday, 8/29. The first thing that struck me was how dark the dining room was. As a person with good eyesight I struggled to read the wine menu while watching a fellow diner struggling to read his bill. The wait staff carry small flash lights!! It is a bit loud and the music is irritating. The food was very good though.
We had a very indifferent, overpriced, forgettable bottle of Cab. Sauv. Without desserts, 2 cocktails and 1 brandy, our bill, (with a decent tip) was $270. I'd return if someone else was paying but it doesn't stand out as a great restaurant. The week before I dined at Susanna Foo's and the food was superb. Much better wait staff and a better atmosphere.
