Best Chinese Restaurants in the U.S.
Chiang’s Gourmet, Seattle
Despite a dodgy location and spotty service, this Taiwanese and Sichuanese restaurant made the culinary map with its homemade noodles. There’s really only one way to order here: from the Chinese or Sichuan menus, which are full of delicious oddities like cattle tendon with hot sauce, jellyfish, fried pig’s intestine, and stinky fried tofu. For something more mainstream, try the fish fillet in Sichuan garlic hot bean sauce or any of the pan-fried noodles, a specialty. Northern-style dim sum is offered on the weekends, and there’s even a vegetarian menu—a rarity at Asian restaurants. chiangsgourmet.com
