Let's put it this way: Red chili won ton bathed in peanut sauce; grilled lamb skewers; green onion crepes; 14 options for wok-fried noodles. Hot pots to share are $6 each, try the tomato variety first.

China Palace

The Palace was huge back in the Seventies and Eighties, with long lines and great Chinese cuisine. It's back with a vengeance and loaded with authentic flavor. Get it delivered if you don't want to leave the house.

Kim Phung Chinese & Vietnamese Restaurant

Most folks go for the pho or the bun, but you should give the dinners a try. The hot-and-sour soup rocks, and the lunch specials are big, cheap, and delicious.
