One of the few dine-in Halal Chinese restaurants in NYC (and one that’s been super popular for years), Fatima’s is delicious, the portions are generous, and the food is always fulfilling. The menu ranges from various types of chicken/beef/seafood dishes, along with noodles or rice, chef’s specials, and dinner specials. There’s no real way to go wrong here, but their orange chicken is one of our favorites. It has the perfect balance of spice with a hint of orange zest. If you are in the mood for something sweet and savory, the sesame chicken cooked in the chef’s special sauce is also one of our go-to options. If you’re looking for something less traditional, order some classic fried chicken, which is juicy, crisp, and tender - assuming there’s still room both on your table and in your stomach. Unlike many other fast-food Chinese restaurants, Fatima’s is very spacious and designed to dine in, which is another good reason to break your fast with family and friends here during Ramadan.

Macao Trading Co.
"Look for the red lantern," instructs the Macao Trading Co. website. This is how you will know you have reached your destination - the Portuguese colony of Macao circa 1952, "a fugitive's heaven from which there is no turning back." Awesome. We're apparently having dinner at Universal Studios tonight.
