really, really surprisingly good chinese food at this dodgy-looking, super old-school restaurant in chinatown. the place definitely seems to have had better days – the exterior is just as worn and outdated as the interior, the servers are cantankerous and grouchy, but the food – the food is good.   let’s talk about the restaurant first – the unimposing entrance to the place completely belies the hugeness of the dining area. we’re talking old-school, banquet-able (in the region of 20-30 tables, possibly more?), with a huge stage in the middle and private rooms surrounding the side. it looks like it would have been impressive in its heyday, but the furnishings are now pretty worn out, and the staff looking nearly as tired as their surroundings.   but thankfully, the food completely outshines all these (not that it’s terribly difficult to do so).
