Ping’s is a dim sum spot in Chinatown with ornate decorations on the walls, big circular tables, and roving carts full of shrimp shumai, roast pork buns, and rice rolls with fried dough. You can get dim sum all day, but there’s also a full menu of Hong Kong-style dishes like garlic eggplant, and a massive, crispy-fried soft shell crab. The menu has a ton of seafood, and a fishtank where you can see said seafood.

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.
Kings County Imperial
Like its original Williamsburg location, the Lower East Side Kings County Imperial serves very good Chinese food and cocktails.
