When I was growing up, Chinese take-out was ethnic food. Nothing more exotic than Moo Goo Gai Pan. Now I’m on the lookout for sizzling Sichuan dishes, Shanghainese soup dumplings, Dim Sum cart service, and savory Taiwanese snacks in New Jersey. Even better if most customers are Chinese-American, the English menu is as long as the Chinese one, and the server offers us chopsticks before forks.
Middlesex, Bergen and Somerset Counties have the most Chinese residents, the second-largest Asian group in New jersey after Asian Indians.
Don’t see your favorite Chinese? Share yours, and I’ll add the most popular to the list, and to the map.
