Montreal Chinatown

We hunted Chowhound for a good Chinese restaurant in Montreal's Chinatown but couldn't find anything that hit us. Then we asked around and heard about Beijing at 92 Rue La Gauchetiere at the corner of Rue St. Urbaine. The first thing we noticed was that it was PACKED on a Tuesday night, while other nearby restaurants were empty. The other notable was that many of the customers were CHINESE. This was a very good sign! We were not disappointed. My friend said the best way to tell a good Chinese restaurant is the Hot and Sour soup. It is complex to make and difficult to pull off. Beijing's H&S Soup was wonderful! We loved the Chicken & Walnuts and shrimp with peapods. We decided we would like to come back and try everything on the extensive menu. One thing to note is that the Chinese customers did appear to be served more quickly than anyone else, but we figured they were the returning locals, so probably deserved the better service. It is worth trying!
