Finding good Chinese food in Arlington is about as easy as finding someone who will wait in the line for Madame Tussaud’s with you (it’s not going to happen, Jenni). But Peter Chang is an exception. Chang is the former chef of the Chinese embassy, and if you’ve ever wanted to use a straw to consume a dumpling, “Peter’s Big Bun” soup dumplings will help you accomplish that goal. For things that don’t require slurping, get some of the massive stir-fry hot pots. You will not leave hungry.
