couple of new places in Chinatown

Golden Leaf on Hudson, next to Ginza, across from Wing's, just open since last Thursday. It's a Malaysian place, with the usual overlaps with Penang, as well as some dishes not found at Penang et al. Char Kuay Teow's on par with Penang, maybe a tiny bit less moist. A decent to fine dish, weaknesses are similar to Penang's, no point going over the entire list of flaws, afterall, no place in town gets it right. Stir fried turnip cake with bean sprouts and shrimp is quite good, big chunks full of turnip flavour. It's a nice dish, even if it's not really like what I get back home (Rainbow Cafe's version is a bit closer). Lush green decor, faux kampong (Malay Village). I'm still pleased to have yet another Singapore/Malaysian place in the area, even if it's far from perfect.

In the old Pacific Garden space is another Cantonese place. Take out menu looks standard, they haven't printed out the Chinese menu yet. Will probably give them a try when they're really open.
