hards,

Actually it is pretty much the same word for the cantonese translation of congee also. "Juke"

SharpShotGal, I love fortune cookies too. Some don't eat them -- they just read their fortunes -- I eat mine and my wife's, too.

Walter, Ordo, and Hards80, I love roast duck, too. I think between that, chicken, and turkey, duck is the least healthy to eat. But I indulge whenever in Chinatown ordering a bowl of roast duck congee (congee is rice porridge) which I share with the whole family as soup. (In case you haven't been to Chinatown, you can share anything you order with your family -- just ask for little bowls.)

shoturtle, if I remember right it's Hsin Wong Restaurant on Bayard Street. We've been going to a different place each time since the one we've been going to for years (I forgot the name but it was on the right side of Mulberry Street if you're facing Canal Street) closed about 2-3 years ago. If you have a recommendation I'm all for it.

One time my son and I were looking for a place to eat there. We went into one also on Bayard. But the place was jampacked. So we went out again, crossed the street, and found a near empty restaurant. We thought maybe the food wasn't as great that's why the few diners. But we were surprise. Food was just as great and authentic and we enjoyed it immensely.

My son, however, would not go back there again because the walls are entirely covered with bills (real money). He said it was un-hygienic. Maybe that's why fewer people eat there we don't know.

Ordo, if I ship I'm afraid it won't be steaming hot and fresh anymore. Maybe we can just exchange hi-res desktop wallpapers of food and then torture each other to death ?
The Chinese have spread out all over the City. No need to go to "China Town" anymore (although I do, since it's near my place).

But I'm a regular shopper at a Chinese Supermarket in Bensonhurst Brookkyn....

Everytime I go to the beach, I stop there for some of their wonderful fresh fish and meat, not to mention all the various kinds of Bau's. etc, etc...

I like all kinds. Our son however didn't like dimsum (at Jing Fong Restaurant) on Elizabeth Street. He eats only the more common and relatively tame lunch specials. He didn't like chicken feet and cow tongue. Neither do I but I love most other dimsum treats.

Congee Village is really good on Allen and Delanacy street. It is a bit out of chinatown. But it is very good for dinner. Jing Fong is okay, to many people on the weekends for lunch.

Thanks, shoturtle. Delancey and Allen streets -- they're easy enough to remember .
