For her birthday, Ms. Poutine Esq wanted a Chinese dinner, old school style. So large round table and family style dishes. Easy, right? Wrong! It would be in Manhattan Chinatown. Shucks! I haven't had a proper dinner in Chinatown in so long. This would be an issue. Besides, I think the better Chinese food can be found in Brooklyn and Queens. So after some digging and scouring of blogs, I settled on Amazing 66.
First up, chicken. Can't have a birthday without chicken, as my mother would say year after year. I chose a half of the fried garlic crispy skin chicken ($12). This was just okay. The meat was a little dry and there should be loads of garlic on top. The whole top should be covered. They were stingy here. The skin was crispy though and flavor-wise, it was okay. Not a total write off but not a must order either.
If anyone has an awesome dinner place in Manhattan Chinatown, please let me know! Otherwise, it's back to the outer boroughs for me!
