First things first: The moment you sit down at this underappreciated Cantonese spot wedged between two auto centers, ask for the Chinese menu, the portal leading beyond the standard kung pao and moo shu dishes. (Don't worry -- the Chinese menu is translated in English as well.) Our kindly server with an obvious passion for food directed us to greens in a gentle oyster sauce; Singapore rice noodles sparked with curry; and steaming, carefully crafted siu mai and har gow dumplings. If Dungeness crab is listed as a special, do not hesitate to order one. Your hard work with a nutcracker and tiny fork will be rewarded with gorgeous lumps of sweet, silky meat.
Price: $$ ($10-$20)
