Shun Lee Palace

Shun Lee Palace Review

If you want inexpensive Cantonese food without pretensions, head to Chinatown; but if you prefer to be pampered and don't mind spending a lot of money, this is the place, which has been elegantly serving classic Chinese fare for over four decades. Beijing panfried dumplings make a good starter, and rack of lamb Szechuan-style, grilled with scallions and garlic, is a popular entrée. The "Lion's Head," a slow-baked pork dish, is one of the most tender porky things you'll eat. Beijing duck, served tableside with thin pancakes, is a signature dish here—and for good reason.
