This is probably one of the best and most reasonable priced Chinese restaurant in the city. It's on Canal Street, and you will see the Fung Wah bus pass often. This restaurant will make you feel like you're in an Anthony Bourdain show. Of course we were sitting under the red neon signage, so the photos look a little saturated. I suggest the "hot pot," and kind of like a pizza, you choose all your toppings. You have to spend about $20 as a minimum, but it's a lot of food.
You should look at this menu when you're choosing the hot pot. There are a lot of exotic ingredients including frog legs and quail. NOTE: Spicy is really SPICY!!! That's coming from someone who loves spicy food. The waiter will warn you.
This spicy broth is really red, and has a lot of the dried chili peppers and black whole pepper balls.
This is the garlic sauce, but there's a lot of fresh ginger in it, so it won't give you dragon breath.
I suggest first adding all the raw meat in. And then parse out all your other toppings because the longer they stay in the spicy broth, the spicier.
So we couldn't finish everything, and we had about 6 ingredients and 1 sauce, 1 whole pot of tea (which is typically free), and 2 beers. Not bad...
