China Emperor

Definitely try the General Tso's chicken, a standout with a sinus-clearing spice rating. The hot-and-sour soup also leaves a pleasant, peppery afterburn.
111 W. William Cannon #312, 512/443-2922

China Express Chinese Restaurant

If you don't want to shell out more than six or seven bucks for a decent, filling Chinese dinner, this is a good bet. Try the sesame chicken.

Hao Hao

A mix of popular Chinese dishes complements its Vietnamese menu. It really shines with the blackboard Vietnamese specials, particularly the vegetarian dishes.
