I've lived in Manhattan for five years now, and I've tried all of the "best" Chinese restaurants in the city. But I have found nothing that even holds a candle to Shiao Lan Kung (and to a lesser extent Lee How Fook) in Philadelphia. Am I missing something? Does Philly really beat NYC in the best of Chinese cuisine? For those who have been to either of those Philly restaurants, do you agree? Is there someplace better here?
For those of you that haven't been, I would strongly recommend a visit to Philly just to try Shiao Lan Kung.
