A walk around the corner. This place is what America is all about. Excellent Food. A great small family business.

The reviews (and menu) on Menu Pages that sent us to this small luncheonette-like room on the corner of Kneeland and Hudson Streets. The food was terrific: tender and tasty steamed pork dumplings (less strongly flavored than most: to my mind a good thing); fried eel (battered and "dry cooked" with salt, onion, and a hint of pepper: light and tender, and the favorite of two in our party, including my nine-year-old daughter); rice cake with Shanghai wild vegetable (slices of a smooth-textured paste-like cake stir-fried with a delicious (but to us unidentifiable) vegetable and a few thin slices of pork); and sweet and sour sliced fish (battered pieces with slices of bell pepper and onion in a tasty sauce -- though sweet and sour is never a favorite of mine). We were there on a Sunday evening, the day before Veteran's Day, when business elsewhere seemed to be bustling, but we were, throughout our dinner, the only ones in the place -- which made it a little eerie ("Could the food really be as good as the Menu Pages reviews insisted?") but peaceful and pleasant. The maitre d' was, as advertised, the only visible staff-person present. (We did hear some clinking and banging from the kitchen.) He was welcoming, kind, and competent -- and a bit surprised when we ordered the eel, moving his hand in a wave just to make sure we really understood what we'd asked for. Chairs and tables are simple, almost office-like pieces, so this isn't the place to go if you're seeking elegance. There weren't so much as paper place-mats on the table, much less tablecloths. The paper shortage extended to the tiny bathroom, where there were no paper towels and almost no toilet paper. Tea was brought to us in tall glasses. No fortune cookies at the end, which was a pleasant change. The business appears to be cash-only. Prices reasonable, food outstanding.

Whenever I venture into to Chinatown I find myself inexorably pulled to this little Shanghai outpost. One man serves the role of host and waiter, and he does so with great competence and reserve. His restaurant is quite small, with seating for thirty or so. It is also clean and orderly, in stark contrast to some of its neighbors. Wing's has the best General Gau's Chicken I've ever had. Before coming here, I assumed that the dish always consisted of grotesquely large pieces of chicken, battered, fried and then coated in a thick, syrupy, and cloyingly sweet sauce. Of course I was wrong though, real Generals could never stomach such a dish let a lone lend their name to it. At Wings Kitchen you'll find the genuine article, here the dish features small morsels of chicken, in a crisp batter, topped with a delicious sauce that's not too sweet, and accompanied by crisp green beans. This is a list of everything I've tried. I recommend all of it. Pan fried pork dumplings Spring rolls Sweet tofu Braised Whole fish with scallion Fried shrimp with shell General Gau's Chicken
