Anybody know of a great authentic Chinese restaurant around the downtown area? I'm specifically looking for great dumplings, and also a kind of pan-fried noodles that I once had at the famous Joe's Shanghai in Flushing, NY. The noodles were thin and golden and crispy, but when drenched in this dark sauce, becomes soft and pliable.
I'm not interested in American-Chinese food, or boring common items like General Tsao or kung pao chicken. I want authentic Chinese food, the kind that brings back nostalgia to one who was brought up eating Chinese food!
