3. Judy Fu's Snappy Dragon
Awful name aside, this place delivers the goods with succulent handmade dumplings. In fact, they're so good, they've made over four million since opening the doors. Other picks include the enormous land and sea stew, the crispy scallion pancakes, and what may well be the best General Tso's in the 206.
