My family will be dropping by Houston on our way eastwards. I've heard that Houston has a sizeable chinese population, so we must try some good chinese food while we are there.

Any recommendations?

Thank you.

I think I ate at that place in 2002. I don't recall the food being anything special taste-wise, but I do recall it was more a good value for the money. Don't really have any Chinese food recommendations for Houston (haven't been there since 2002/2003), I mainly ate either Thai or Korean food when I was eating out there. I did notice that some of the places around DIHO appeared to becoming more mainstream / less authentic than in the past (well, at least my observations from the 80s to early 00s).

I'm not really familiar with authentic Chinese. BBQ Pork fried rice, etc sounds Americanized.

If you're coming out to the ''Bay Area'' there's Clear Lake Hunan which is brand new and pretty good. I've been to King Food in Webster a few times and like that place, and they have Vietnamese (i.e. very strong fish).

If you're looking for a cheap, greasy $7 buffet look at Lucky Village just west of the Galleria and there's one on Dairy Ashford just south of I-10.

If you're looking for even cheaper, greasier $4 fast food and don't mind stopping in the crappiest parts of town, Timmy Chan's is your place.

No, not the $4 a meal kind. (I'm ethnic chinese, by the way..)
Anything near chinatown? We eaten at the seafood restaurant near the Hong Kong supermart. Good food (roast duck is good), but a tad too much MSG.

The Tea Cup south of Beechnut on Beltway 8 is good. They have a lot of noddle and rice dishes and nothing is fried, except for the fried tofu of course. I like Lai Lai, but that's a little more Americanized.
