2016 Chinese Restaurant
This is the restaurant that refuses to die. After closures, re-openings, remodels, and rumors that it would turn into a high-end, white-tablecloth Chinese restaurant, Ting Wong has emerged as essentially the same place it always was — a simple, unfussy spot offering ridiculously good (and cheap) roast duck, congee and Hong Kong-style noodles. It’s bright, busy, sometimes sticky and always intimidating to newcomers, but it remains the single coolest restaurant in Chinatown.
