Default Has anyone from back East found a good Chinese restaurant?

What I wouldn't give for some "real" Chicken Chow Mein right now! And I don't mean Lo Mein being disguised as Chow Mein!

and broccolli with garlic sauce....yum.

there is a lot of good places on Spring Mountain between Valley View and Jones. Korean, Chinese, Vietnamese. Cathay House is a good for Dim Sum, very crowded during the weekends.

I'm from SF, and I think I know my chinese food. I grew up eating it almost everyday because most of the people I grew up with was either asian or chinese decent. Anyhow, this area of Vegas is the China Town and all the best asian food is there. Check it out.

No offence, but a lot of New York chinese food is not the real thing either. I have had great chinese food in Hong Kong when I was a teenager and I found a place in San Fransisco that was right on par with the real thing. LA has some amazing Chinese food as well. I have eaten alot, and I mean alot, of chinese food in the states (you kinda have to to stay full) and I will tell you that Seattle has the most authentic I have ever tasted on US soil. Now as far as Italian food goes, that one New York wins hands down. There is a place we had the other night that was really, really good. I do not remember the name, but as soon as my fiance gets home, I'll ask her what it was. It was up on Spring Mountain road is all I remember.

Yup, Spring Mountain is the place for good asian restaurants. If you notice all the asians there, its gotta be good! As for Seattle, this is true because just over the border there is a city called "Hong Couver" its what they call Vancouver, BC because all the Chinese there... very very good Chinese food there too!
