I moved here 4 months ago from Boston and deeply miss authentic Chinese food.
I know this is a long shot, but the KC area is able to support at least 4 decent Asian markets, where I have seen Asian and other Chinese people shopping.
I believe there must be good Chinese food in the area, somewhere, hidden away, where Chinese people go out to eat.
Bo Ling's isn't what I'm looking for, nor is Blue Koi. I'm looking for the place where the shrimp still have heads, the chicken feet are part of the dim sum menu or they know what szechuan peppercorns are and they're not afraid to use them. The best I've found so far is Peking Chinese in Westport and, while it was tasty, it's not what I'm yearning for.
I found this thread: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/665456 Any thoughts? Is Pine and Bamboo good?
Any leads? Thank you!
