What are your favorite non-Szechuan restaurants in Chinatown?

I know I'm in the minority here - I can't eat spicy food.
Some of our favorite places have changed - lost owners, etc. - and we would love to have recommendations of where to go in Chinatown
for non-Szechuan food.

For years, our favorite was Lee How Fook. (And of course, Lakeside Deli).
This weekend, we were at Lee How Fook with mixed reviews. All new menu, and a delicious Peking duck roll. However, the sweet-and-sour pork was full of bones and gristle. When I complained, the waitress said that next time I should ask for the white meat, no bones. We will go there and try it again, because our other dishes were fine.

We do go often to Yang Ming, which we like very much, but it's far.

Where else in Chinatown?
