Chinese restaurants in the DC area tend to be either really spare and spartan with good food, or fancy with mediocre food. Cafe Hong Kong has both a nice ambiance AND really dellicious, fresh food. Try the "snow fish," which is fried cod fish with brown sauce and cilantro. Very good. Pretty much everything they make is totally fresh and comes out of the kitchen very very hot! I also like their shrimp with walnuts. Very succulent and yummy, with candied walnuts!
