I know Bally's.  I'll check out Ellis Island, that's a good tip.

It's pretty funny...because locals line up to buy bottles of the stuff. They consistently sell out each day. Even I, not an eggnog fan, really liked it.

Sorry a little late but here are a few of my experiences.. 

 

This is one of my favorite, Yunan Garden

 

Started with some cold things.. I was by myself mind you.   Pig ears, it's my favorite thing, i think

Spicy gizzards with celery:  I loved this dish a little fermented pepper taste, it was spicy and salty and what i wanted texture wise.

They also ordered string beans which were good.

Okay I will get out to the Chinese places next spring. Delegated the October double header to my wonderful managing editor; she's not tired of the strip yet.
