Old Town 97
Everyone has that one friend. You know, the helpful one who actually stops drinking after their third glass and who lovingly butters a piece of toast for you while saying, “eat this, you’ll feel better for it in the morning”. For us, that friend is Old Town 97. This converted townhouse is one of the best spots in Chinatown for big group tables, a quick turnaround, and a 3.30am closing time. They serve great roasted meats, affordable fried rice dishes, and lots of other Cantonese classics. Their wonton noodles in soup are good, but what you’ll really want to get involved in is the duck section of the menu. Everything from the stir-fried duck in black bean sauce to the fried udon with shredded duck are go-to winners.
