I wanted to make a plug for a restaurant in Florence, MA (right outside Northampton/Smith College, off of Route 9) that is THE BEST CHINESE RESTAURANT IN THE PIONEER VALLEY. I have recently moved to Chapel Hill, NC, and have only now realized what a good thing I had in THE GREAT WALL--it is owned and operated by Clara & Kenny--a great couple who originally are from Hong Kong (Clara trained as a french chef there). The restaurnat is in a little strip mall next to a Brook's Pharmacy and a liquor store. It doesn't look like much, but the food is FANTASTIC-- it is authentic/homestyle, and Clara and Kenny will make things for you that are not on the menu. I took my parents there (who are Chiense American) and they said it was reminiscent of the food they grew up with in China. And if anyone has any recommendations on great Chiense food in the South, please post to the South Chowhound Board--I've already posted an inquiry.
