May Q made us fall in love with authentic Korean cuisine. Their tteok-bokki—rice cakes in a sweet, spicy, and savory sauce—is a fiery dish perfect for night owls drooling for a hearty meal.

The chefs here also steam and fry a range of flavor-packed dumplings, from vegetarian to meat-filled bites that burst with properly seasoned flavors.

Our staple order, though, is their Korean fried chicken, coated with ingredients such as soy sauce, garlic, ginger, sesame oil, and honey. Pair this one with the clean and low-burning soju spirit, and you’ll have a night to remember.

Chinese comforts served in a simple but soothing interior are what you’ll gobble at the homely Fung Shing.

We can’t get enough of the irresistible sweetness of honey chicken and the sizzling, savory essence of their Mongolian lamb.

The shrimp and chives dumplings are also Gouger St specials, best eaten with a glass of wine or beer. Speaking of bevvies, they have a $5 corkage fee here, so you can BYO booze.


As long as they have the ingredients, you can request off-menu dishes.

Ying Chow’s aesthetics are basic, but their food tells a whole different story. Think stir-fried crocodile with snow peas and a dish hilariously called the BBC, which boasts bean curd, broad beans, and Chinese chutney!

They also whip out meals fit for a royal banquet, huge plates of Guangzhou’s finest flavors, including their sizzling venison, signature E-shand chicken, and black pepper beef.

But if you want the resto’s crowd-pleaser, opt for their timeless roast duck—juicy, succulent, and popping with savory goodness.
