Moist and succulent char siu pork, nongreasy roast duck, the juiciest marinated chicken, crispy-skinned Peking duck, and delightful little quails in special salt make Ho Ho a must-go.
The dishes are authentically flavored, wonderfully spicy, and cooked with fresh ingredients. The Ma Po Doufu is a lusty temple to the gods of chile and mala: superb and perfect on a nippy day, delightfully sweat-inducing on a hot day.
