Shu Feng
(8435 Olive Boulevard, University City; 314-983-0099)

Add one more great location to Olive Boulevard's "China Town." Shu Feng stands out as one of the absolute best spots to enjoy excellent renditions of your favorite Chinese dishes, including a wonderfully fiery hot-braised pork and the rare hot-and-sour soup. Lunch specials are whipped up in no time at all and include two tasty crab rangoon (or one egg roll) to boot. You can even order takeout online! And with late-night hours on the weekend (open till 2:30 a.m.), this is the spot to feed those post-bar cravings.

Wonton King
(8116 Olive Boulevard, University City, 314-567-9997)

Yet another excellent place to stop for Chinese along Olive Boulevard, Wonton King serves up "Hong Kong-style" Chinese food for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner; dine-in or carry-out. Serving consistently delicious and always inexpensive Chinese food makes this an easy choice for food to fill a bottomless stomach. (We named it "Best Dim Sum" in 2009's Best of St. Louis.) We'd also readily recommend any of the delicious wonton soups, dumplings or the baked barbecue pork with vegetables.

My favorite is not even on this list, Old St. Louis Chop Suey, near Chippewa and Kingshighway. The Mandarin Chicken is to die for.


Oh, Ian, what were you thinking? You left out Royal Chinese BBQ and Wei Hong, arguably two of the very best Chinese restaurants in town in favor of Shu Feng! I tried Shu Feng tonight and was disappointed. The spicy pork was bland, even after I ordered it extra spicy, and "spicy" squid was similarly bland. There were no veggies other than onions. Our food was such a bust, we had to make an ice cream stop on the way home to drown our sorrows. And by the way, what's rare about hot and sour soup? It's practically ubiquitous.
