Midtown East Chinese Showdown: Shun Lee v. Chin Chin

New, 1 comment
Chin Chin; Shun Lee Palace

Let's say that, for whatever reason, a visiting relative from out of town wants to dine at either Shun Lee Palace or Chin Chin for dinner. They're paying, they want to order a lot of food, and you must dine with them. Which do you choose? One has minced squab in lettuce pockets, plus chocolate cake for dessert (Chin Chin), while the other has Szechuan bouillabaisse and sweetbreads with black mushrooms (Shun Lee). Make your pick down below, and feel free to argue your case in the comments.
