There was a time when I was a student would walk across the Brooklyn Bridge to Chinatown and eat there regularly. There were times I ate seven dinners a week there and knew some chefs.

The Chinese food I find today is less interesting than some of the things those chefs would serve (we usually left the choice of food up to the waiter or chef).

But my favorite, bar none, is peanut butter (sesame) noodles, cold (actually room temp).

Very easy to make, even if you are not near an Asian market for the ingredients.

Can just Google for recipes.

As I am lazy, ususally buy it from our local Chinese takeout guy who makes an acceptable, but not inspired version.

Give it a try.

I like Hunan style food. There is a place here that serves spicy Hunan style Lamb. I'd say that would be my favorite.

It is hard to just name one, since I like so many Asian dishes:

Pork chow mein
Kung pao chicken or beef
Orange chicken
General Tso's chicken
Bulgogi (Korean)
Tempura vegetables
Szchewan triple delight (veggies, shrimp, beef, and chicken in a spicy sauce)
Mu shu pork
Spicy ground chicken with eggplant
Cashew chicken
Egg drop soup
Hot and sour soup

etc, etc. I could just go on and on. Asian dishes are my favorite. If I have an option when asked what kind of restaurant I want to go to the answer is typically Chinese, Korean, or sometimes Thai.

I'm a sucker for orange beef... not sure if it is a true Chinese dish, but I do love it tho!!! Shrimp fried rice comes second.
