Please add your recommendations to this list.
BTW, I always try to order Pan fried noodles, salt and pepper squid and peking duck so I can compare similar dishes.

Rice and Co. (Kirkman Rd & Arnold Palmer Dr., Metro West, 407*293*7423)
Most authentic Hong Kong style pan fried noodles. They were crisp and crunchy. The signature Rice and Co. beef tender, while fusion (potatoes are not a staple of any Asian coutnry I know of) it's super tasty. Sashimi appetizer, large pieces and great flavor. Salt and pepper squid was salty and peppery. Crispy duck was crispy, but a little on the fatty side, didn't know duck could be so fatty. Dessert was SUPER!! The taro cake was as good as back home in NY's china town (think China town ice crea factory but in a cake). no peking duck.

Ming's Bistro (Woodward St, north west of Mills and W.Colonial) Real dim sum!! (Thanks for the tip Bob Mervine) The pan fried noodles were not the thin crispy Hong Kong style. The noodles were a little thiker. The salt and pepper squid is called seasoned squid, still great flavor. You walk in an it's like any chinese sit down old school restaurant you would find in NY, Philly or SF. I was too excited about dim sum to look for the peking duck.

Hong Kong Asian Cuisine (6618 Old Winter Garden Rd.) Authentic Pan Fried noodles. Salt and pepper squid was crunchy and a nice light batter. The peking duck is the best bang for the buck I've had. a half for $12 and a whole is $22. and it comes with scallions, hoisen sauce and 6 or 12 mandarin pancakes. I know it's missing cucumber slices.

Still have to try 4-6-9 (or is it 4-5-9?) and others that have been mentioned in previous posts. Made myself hungry, gotta go find something to eat, will continue this later....
