Must try: E-Fu Noodles, General Tso’s Chicken, Watercress, Shrimp & Pork Dumplings

Chinatown Brasserie is one of those big box Americanized Asian themed restaurants that (if it wasn’t in New York City) I would shudder to eat at.

However Chinatown Brasserie manages to distinguish itself mostly because of its brilliant Hong Kong-born Dimsum chef Joe Ng.

Chef Ng has created a distinctive and truly impressive menu that offers creative takes on Dimsum favorites using better ingredients. Most of my favorites were the shrimp-based dumplings and the chicken dishes was really good too – the General Tso’s was kicking!!

Chinatown Brasserie offers a wonderful venue for some high quality eats at a reasonable price point.
