Customers who have traveled to the Big Apple's Chinatown swear this East Dallas joint, in an old drive-in, is the closest thing to New York Chinese food in Big D (especially if driving up 75 to Richardson is out of the question). Aside from the standard Americanized Chinese choices, there are more traditional options tacked to the wall, with some specials of Vietnamese origins. Try the Vietnamese coffee (thick with condensed milk). Oddly, this restaurant gets a lot of spillover from Jimmy's Food Store, across the street, probably due to the Jimmy's short hours and Sunday closing. Nevertheless, the chicken fat noodle with black bean sauce, the Chinese water spinach and steamed dumplings, not to mention the enormous portions, keep loyal patrons and newbies coming back.
