Make the trip to Chinatown for some authentic chow. Restaurants here come essentially in two types: the formal banquet hall where the seafood is so fresh it often comes straight from the tank; and the casual cafeteria where they serve huge platters of chow mein, Mongolian beef, lemon chicken and other quickly prepared meals at rock-bottom prices.
Full House has the most authentic chinese seafood in Chinatown. The place itself is not the most upscale but the food more then makes up for it. Wonderful Szechwan green beans, corn soup, pungent shrimp, and Peking duck.
