Full Kee - A possible suggestion

I know there's a lot of debate lately about Full Kee, so let me add another item to try. It's not really *new*, but we saw a fella order it a few years back and it's a personal favorite of mine.

I like a dish called 'soy chicken shrimp dumpling noodle soup with vegetable'. My apologies if it's a known dish to chowhounders, but I really enjoy it. One of my favorites along with pan fried cod fish w/ ginger and scallion, chicken pan fried noodle and baby shrimp w/ egg on rice.

Here's what I like about the dish. The soup broth is a bit weak at the DC Full Kee (Wheaton seems to put a gallon of salt in the broth). The soy chicken really adds to the broth giving it a little more richer flavor. They throw in three dumplings with the noodles and the greenery and it's a pretty complete meal for around 8 bucks. I ask for white meat and it's pretty good. The only pitfall is that there are bones and real small bone pieces to look out for.

And thanks to the folks on the board we've tried the oyster casserole. Really good dish to share.
