    Get the sarang burong in seafood style. Fried taro outside with casserole inside. Delish!

    This is now the best 'salt-baked squid' (aka salt & pepper squid) in Chinatown. They call it 'golden squid.' Do not miss this!! Beef rendang & coconut rice just made me wish I could be in Malaysia.

    The mango chicken is awesome. A little pricey, though. The rice dishes, which are a lot cheaper, are also really great. Pretty big portions, too.

    If you ever find yourself in NYC Chinatown, check out Nyonya. It's the same exact place as this with a different name. Their garlic chicken is definitely a must try ! Happy eating 
