Dim sum!

Whole Dungeness crab in spicy black bean sauce.

Sauteed snow pea greens in garlic and oil.

A crazy soup in Chinatown in Boston that the Oriental customers would order (it wasn't on the menu) that was all kinds of greens in a light chicken broth.

Whole fish, fried in a wok, with ginger, garlic, black beans and fish sauce.

I have made a 150 mile round trip into NYC just to get Chinese food that is not available where I live. There are no sit down Chinese places here, there are two competing buffets and take-out. It seems that the take-out places have the same pictures over the counter and I almost believe that the menus are all identical. Do people still eat chow mein and chop suey?
If I do order take-out, it is General Tso's chicken or some kind of noodles.

That said, I will usually get the roast duck, along with char sui steamed and baked pork buns, which I will bring back home on the train. The whole Metroliner becomes infused with the aroma of roast duck.

I myself was never a fan of chop suey or chow mein. Those crispy soup noodles are great though. If i bring soup home and refrigerate it for a later time it's mandatory that i hide the crispy noodles. Otherwise, my wife will eat them on me.

My favorite dishes would be:

General Tso's Chicken
Double cooked pork
egg foo young
wonton soup
Kung Po Chicken
Chicken in Garlic Sauce
Chicken with mushrooms in oyster sauce
BBQ Spare Ribs
Steamed dumpling (W/Dipping sauce)

My New Edition to th list: Hunan Chicken
