    The tic-tac-toe chicken. Actually there was a machine that released a bit of corn that the chicken would peck at. When the contraception detected the peck, it would trigger the computer to make its move.

    Sorry to ruin the illusion, but there was nothing special about this chicken, actually there were many chicken over the years, all of them eventually finding their way into chicken chow main or some other dish

    Peking Duck House

    Duck frame soup, fried dumplings, Peking duck, dry sauteed string beans, rice.
    Go with a party of four and share this combination for a reasonably priced meal. After the Peking duck has been carved by your table, ask for the duck carcass. Take it home for a snack and nibble on the meat left on the bones.

    Years ago I had Dim Sum at the Silver Palace. They had at least a dozen carts going around the room with at least a hundred different types of Dim Sum, fried, steamed some very elaborate. Many had their own special sauces. I've never had Dim Sum quite like this anywhere else.

    Yes! The tic-tac-toe chicken--OMFG I havent thought about that in decades.

    When you are downtown at 5:00 am after closing down a bar *anything* you get at Wo Hop is the best dish in chinatown.

    Peking duck.

    Hunan Gardens on the corner of Chatum Square and Worth or Mott?, used to make a great one but I don't think they're around anymore or the place changed names. After their duck and a few drinks you needed only walk a few steps down the block to play with the tic-tac-toe chicken.... Another landmark the good old board of health or PITA rid us of.

    Think so? I still don't see any cats running around there. Stick with the shrimp dishes. They still haven't learned to make a shrimp from a cat.

    THe Roasted SpareRibs at Big Wong. I eat them a slab at a time. Their pan fried beef noddles is also excellent.

    For a little more pricey, the Steak cubes with shitake mushromms at Congee is awesome.
