Good Cantonese (like Shanghai Bun in Matawan) in North Jersey?

There's this place called Shanghai bun in Matawan that is awesome cantonese food. It's a lot of noodle soups and other stuff, but it's all really authentic cantonese food that isn't just dim sum. They even have the special real wok burners that use buttloads of gas. On the weekends, they even have cantonese breakfast, you can get the fried crullers, soybean "soup" sweet or savory, radish su bing, etc.

That is, really good cantonese food OTHER THAN dim sum.

Any place like this in North Jersey? Or Rockland or Westchester county? Or Hudson county?

and anybody know what kind of chili oil they use as a condiment? It's smoky and aged tasting, whereas whatever I buy has too much of the stinky fermented flavor, too strong. The chili oil they have on the table is clean tasting and amazing. Where do i get chili oil like this?
