With its mirrored walls and vinyl booths, the dining room at Hop Kee looks very much like something out of the 1960s, and it’s a good spot for groups who happen to get hungry late at night (they’re open until 4am on weekends). So bring a couple of friends for some Cantonese-style crab, chow fun, or one of the 15 different beef dishes. Portions are large, and the place is about as casual as a diner.
