China Blue

Where: 135 Watts Street, NYC 10013 (b/t Washington St and Greenwich St)
  • A true test of a restaurant is getting a native to eat there and rate the food; I thought it was pretty good, but my Shanghainese friend was less impressed
  • The Crispy Eel Wuxi Style was the only item that got a begrudging OK
  • We also got: Braised Tofu with King Crab Meat, Radish Puffs, Dongpo Pork (skip), Shredded Beef with Asian Chili (not as spicy as it sounds, but good), Steamed Whole Bass with Ginger, and Lightly Sautéed Snow Pea Shoots
  • Their sister restaurant China Cafe is better
