Ask the Server to order for you... tell them you'd like to be served an authentic Chinese meal like the one that they would get at home.

We're working on a series of articles about each of the eight different Chinese cuisines. We haven't been to MOST of the restaurants featuring some of those cuisines... That's one of the very many reasons we posted asking for suggestions.

I'll recommend a few that I visit regularly. I'm Chinese by the way.
Each restaurants have few great dishes but I'm not sure with the dish names in English.

Flushing:

Tea Shop 168 & Bakery
5920 Main St, Flushing, NY 11355
- Hong Kong style fast food. Good for breakfast/lunch. No tips.

Main Street Imperial Taiwanese Gourmet
5914 Main St, Flushing, NY 11355
- Next door very good Taiwanese cuisine. Good for Lunch/dinner.

Corner 28
40-28 Main St ,New York, NY 11354
- Hong Kong style BBQ (Cha Siu, etc) Good for lunch/dinner. I haven't be here for a while.

Nan Xiang Dumpling House
38-12 Prince St ,New York, NY 11354
- One of the best Dumpling in town (Xiao Long Bao) Lunch/dinner.

New Imperial Palace SeaFood Restaurant
13613 37th Ave, Queens, NY 11354
- Next to Joe shanghai. Nice cantonese seafood restaurant for dinner. Good for big groups.

Malay Restaurant Inc
13517 40th Rd, Flushing, NY 11354
- One of the best Malaysian restaurant in NYC

Canton Gourmet
3808 Prince St, Queens, NY 11354

Brooklyn

Kowloon Cafe Inc
2365 86th St, New York, NY 11214
- best portuguese style baked chicken over rice here. Hong Kong style food.

Longevousjoy
6610 Bay Pkwy, Brooklyn, NY 11204
- Japanese food but chinese owner. so... one of my fav Japanese food in Brooklyn. They have more cooked than raw dishes.

Bamboo Pavillon
6920 18th Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11204
- Sizchuan style or you can do all you can eat hot-pot for good price. Under $20pp from what I can recall. There's also Mr.Hot Pot on 8th Ave but I won't recommend it as it is very over priced.

Fay Wong Cafe Bakery Inc
6205 18th Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11204
- Hong Kong style breakfast/lunch. no tipping. like Tea Shop 168 in Flushing.

East Harbor Seafood Palace
714 65th St, Brooklyn, NY 11220
- Best dim sum place in Brookyln IMHO and I've tried a lot of them. Ok for dinner as well but I don't usually come for dinner. expect over 1hr wait time on the weekends for dim sum.

Kai Feng Fu Dumpling House
4801 8th Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11220
- You won't find cheaper dumplings than here. location and interior may look creepy and dirty. but super value and offers good tasting for the price.

Nyonya
5323 8th Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11220
- best Malaysian food in brooklyn but there aren't many to choose from anyways.

City Cafe
5603 8th Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11220
- Nice cantonese style for dinner or lunch. can come for congee in the morning for breakfast.

Manhattan

iM Star Cafe
19 Division St #1, New York, NY 10002
- Hong Kong style breakfast. one of the best.

Big Wong
67 Mott St, Manhattan, NY 10013
- Hands down best cha siu in NYC.

XO Kitchen
148 Hester St, New York, NY 10013
- Canton style with VERY board variety of dishes.

Congee Village
100 Allen St, New York, NY 10002
- Nice canton style restaurant for dinner with groups.

Cha Chan Tang
45 Mott St, New York, NY 10013
- Hong Kong style like Tea Shop 168 but fancier.

Noodle Village
13 Mott St, New York, NY 10013
- They claim they don't put MSG in their dishes.

Joe's Ginger
25 Pell St, New York, NY 10013
- I come here for my Shanghai dumpling fix. I feel like Joe's Shanghai is too touristy, too crowded, too expensive and subpar service.

Shanghai Asian Manor
21 Mott St, New York, NY 10013
- another option for Shanghai dumpling fix.

Thai Son
89 Baxter St, New York, NY 10013
- I don't eat Vietnamese pho a lot but when I do I come to this one.

New Malaysia
48 Bowery, New York, NY 10013
- Best malaysian food in chiantown. When the Chinese people say Chinatown it means the Manhattan one. Flushing one is called flushing and Brooklyn is called 8 ave.

Sanur Restaurant
18 Doyers St Suite B, New York, NY 10013
- One of the best and authentic malaysian food. This is a hidden gem. it's in the basement so you won't find tourists here.

Bo Ky
80 Bayard St, New York, NY 10013
- famous for noodles. they have many kinds.

Wah Mei
190 Hester St, New York, NY 10013
- if you don't care about healthy this taiwan style fired pork chop or chicken legs offer good tasting. I'm thirsty as hell everytime I eat this. I feel like they put tons of MSG in it.




PS. I live in Brooklyn, used to work in Chinatown and often go to Flushing to hangout with friends. I think I'm kind of familiar with NYC chinese restaurants. Hope these help. Generally I prefer Chinese food in Hong Kong (of course), toronto, vancouver, LA and SF. NYC has the quantity but quality is not really on par with the above mentioned cities.

I actually think this should be illegal, because it's implicitly discriminatory. I was looking at a Chinese printed menu recently where a whole section was untranslated.
