Such was the case as Craig LaBan discovered Chinese Restaurant, a nondescript storefront where LaBan finds Fujianese soup dumplings and delicate wontons. That is just one of the discoveries the Inquirer’s food critic reveals in this guide that takes you from Chinese waffles to the best duck in Chinatown.

    Someone needs to review Ho Sai Gai, which sits directly across the street from David’s. It’s open just as late but is more flavorful, less greasy, and WAYY better overall in terms of both food quality and service.
