Chinese-challenged Cliffside Park now has the real deal in Petite Soo Chow, reports marachino. Shanghai specialties like xiao long bao (soup dumplings) and fish head clay pot are “easily the kind of stuff that would warrant a trip to Chinatown or Flushing.” Wu Xi spare ribs and red-cooked fish are also worth a try, says kNOwTASTE, who finds the food “a bit better than your average Chinese restaurants in Flushing or Chinatown, which makes it excellent in Bergen County.”
Service is cordial and attentive, and on weekends there’s northern-style Chinese breakfast–shaobing, steamed buns, soy milk and crullers, and the like.
