Westlake chinese on rt 34 keeps getting better

I liked this place since it arrived to be sure, but my latest visit was the best yet.

Their casserole dishes are as good as any I have had in Chinatown nyc, especially the new steak, chinese sausage and black mushroom one - yummy!

Fish swim in tanks in the back oblivious to the tasty fate that awaits them. Do yourself a favor and get one of the whole fish dishes if you go. I like the crispy ones, my wife prefers steamed, and we both love the ginger and scallion.

Also top notch is their salt and chili pepper pork chop or seafood dishes.

One last thing - I love real wonton soup. When I used to workout in Boston's chinatown many many years ago there was a small and now long gone place that would make big bowls of it that I almost lived on. You can recognize it by two things; crispy fresh lettuce is the only "garnish", and the wonton are wrinkled and look like little brains rather than triangular ravioli. Try a bowl.
