We're going down to our home-away-from-home this weekend (long wknd for us 'Nucks .... grin). But this time my folks will be coming along, and while they're reasonably flexible in terms of different cuisines (but nay on Indian and Mexican), to them good ol' Chinese is total comfort food.
SO ...... I know B'ham is a black hole when it comes to good (or even okay) Chinese. I recall seeing some Americanized-Chinese joints on either Holly, State or Samish but never bothered going in (which may have been wise, since we're coming from Vancouver).
But I'd like to hear what are your best rec's ! TIA.
