1st-time visit to Chicago Chinatown... must-try recommendations?

asianbun | Feb 25, 2008 10:07 AM

Visiting in a week, and my bf and I are taking the train to Chinatown (not by car).
What places do i "have to" hit up? I love specialty food spots that specialize in one thing (bing, bao, soup dumplings, pancakes, etc), and for dinner, i'd love a recommendation that has great food but is not too dingy or hole-in-the-wall. (i'll do that for lunch, but not dinner!).
I'm from Chinese descent originally from Cali, so i know good Chinese food ---NYC's Chinatown is too greasy for my taste.

Reco's please!!!
