Chinatown is a vast land of cheap and tasty dining options, where we balance between the hassle of walking through small crowded streets and the food waiting for us at the end. For when we don't mind the walk, Noodle Village is our number choice for light and fresh noodle soups adorned with fish cakes and dumplings. Another walk worth taking is to the back alley of Doyers for freshly pulled noodles at Tasty Hand Pulled Noodles. The soup is a thing of great substance, eat for days but never quite get to the bottom of the bowl. Shanghai Cafe, as you know if you know us, is what we recommend to anyone who asks for something good to eat in Chinatown. It's worth going for the soup dumplings alone although we never go without ordering the rice cakes and string beans too. Finally for when we have no time to fight our way through crowds, we pop down the street to Wah Mei for instant gratification in the form of a fried chicken leg over rice.
