Chinatown: Hop Kee and Ten Ren Tea Time

IWantFood | Feb 16, 2011 05:55 PM

Thinking of going to Hop Kee this Friday for an early dinner. Whether they serve the best Cantonese food in Chinatown isn't my concern: I'm going with my mother to have Chinese food that reminds her of how it used to be, and she wants Cantonese.

My questions:

1. Are there any dishes that are particularly good? No crab, snails, or pork as main dish. Pork in egg roll or soup is okay.

2. I'd like to order pan-fried flounder. Never attempted a whole fish before. Any tips as to how to eat it without a). mutilating the thing?, b). choking on a bone, and c). looking silly?

3. Ten Ren Tea Time down the street (75 Mott) from Hop Kee: how's the bubble tea?

4. Will be driving. Yes, I know that's probably a bad idea. Any parking suggestions? Sorry for the OT.

Thanks in advance.
