Seeking Yummy Chinese

We are on a quest to find a Chinese restaurant that's tasty enough to be a regular haunt. Have a favorite? Let's have it.

In Chinatown, we've been to Joyful House, Cathay House, Emperor's Garden, a couple others no longer in business, and Ping Pang Pong, nearby. None have fit the bill. Reviews for Harbor Palace have never been great so it really wasn't on my radar. We only stopped in because I've driven by it hundreds of times and curiousity had finally gotten the better of me.

We had eggrolls, sweet & sour chicken, eggplant in garlic sauce and then oranges with fortune cookies followed for dessert.

The eggplant was really good, the veggies were fresh and crisp and the sauce had a bit of kick. The rest of the meal was fine, but far less memorable. Service was lackadaisical, but I suspect the language barrier might have something to do with it. Needless to say, our search continues...
