If you want a quick, inexpensive lunch that’s probably more delicious than you deserve, go to Fei Long Food Court. It’s attached to Fei Long Supermarket (another place worthy of your time and attention), and it consists of about eight vendors situated around a sea of tables. Shall We Eat, Inc. tends to be the busiest one, and for good reason. They make some excellent roast meats, and you can get two of them over rice with sauteed greens for about $7. Shanghai Dumpling House is another popular spot, specializing in soup dumplings with moderately thick, slightly chewy skin. Get an order, find an open seat, and eat these dumplings before they cool down.

Spicy Village is not a romantic date spot. Unless styrofoam dishware gets you all hot and bothered. Take your friends, bring a bottle of wine, and prepare to spend $10 a piece on some delicious Chinese grub.
