Chinatown's bustin' out from Sichuan and Cantonese cuisine, and now embraces this regional Dongbei flagbearer from Manchuria and the hardy northeast of China. Set off by vintage black-and-white photos and modern dark-wood tables, with service that is Chinatown industry standard—it's seriously hot and cold—this spot has a mazy 122-dish menu in which you can get lost among all the cold vegetable starters, dumplings, stews, and hotpots. Best to swerve the tripe, duck's
tongue, and chicken gizzard, but opt for Dongbei faves like chili-ed Xinjiang-style fried lamb with cumin, pork belly with spinach and glass noodles, and Bang Bang king prawns.
