i love this joint!... i've been coming here since '05, and nothing's changed... the place is basically a hole-in-the-wall, and cramped... there are about six tables, approximately 40 people can fit, and the open kitchen's right off to the side... it's always packed with locals, peppered with confused tourists wondering what they've gotten themselves into... it's truly a chinatown experience... and the main draw? the food of course!... i always get the wonton soup, which is superb, large, and nicely priced at $4... we also order the generous plates of shrimp and/or seafood chow mein... aka, crispy fried thin egg noodles which you then mix yourself with the juicy shrimp/seafood that's been placed on top... the cantonese really know how to make chow mein!... come for the soups and for the chow mein... you won't be disappointed.
