25. Far East Chinese Restaurant

“This is honestly my go to Chinese spot for a number of reasons. It’s close to home and their quality is there. I appreciate the fact that they’re the closest thing to NYC Chinese food. I normally order the crab rangoon to start. Easily, one of my favorite dishes to start off with when it comes to Chinese. Their wings are always on point. Always crispy and never lacking in the flavor department.:: – Danielle M.
