Despite its setting in a nondescript basement, this casual eatery in Chinatown often has lines extending out the front door thanks to its extensive menu of authentic, inexpensive Cantonese cuisine. Peach Farm’s décor is virtually nonexistent, save for simple black chairs and light pink tablecloths, but visitors are focused solely on signature dishes like the salt and pepper squid, ginger scallion lobster, and a variety of fish selected from large tanks. Adventurous diners can also taste more unusual fare such as geoduck clams and sesame jellyfish. Open until 3 a.m., the restaurant is particularly popular with the late night crowd.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
