Chefs' Favorite Chinese Restaurants in the U.S.
Formerly Henan Flavor, this small storefront in Manhattan’s Chinatown is one of Mission Chinese Food chef-owner Danny Bowien’s favorite haunts for excellent Chinese food in the city. “They do this ‘Big Tray of Chicken’ with pieces of fried chicken that have been braised in beer, chile, fennel and Sichuan peppercorns,” he says. “You have to get them to put their handmade pulled noodles on top. That’s the best thing in the whole world.” 68B Forsyth St.; (212) 625-8299
