Diners at Formosa Asian Cuisine certainly can't complain about a lack of choices: more than 100 pad thai, fried rice, and curry dishes fill the menu, which is organized into beef, chicken, pork, and seafood categories. Quite a few of the dishes turn up the heat—the Dragon & Phoenix tosses jumbo shrimp and general tso's chicken in chili sauce—and others deliver crispy textures, such as the deep-fried duck. Diners savor these meals and sip BYOB beverages in a dining room replete with tasteful touches from pale-pink seating and blond-wood accents to linen napkins folded to eerily resemble your favorite Beatle.

Nestled in the New Britain Village Shopping Center, Gourmet Wok unfurls a pan-Pacific spread of Chinese, and Southeast Asian cuisine that spurns the use of MSG. Guests tote their own beverages to pair with a dinner menu of sumptuous dishes—try chef specialties such as the tangerine beef ($11.95), marinated and tickled over a high flame, or the sizzling subgum wor ba ($12.95), a slumber party of lobster, shrimp, chicken, beef, and veggies gossiping about the uninvited pork. Edamame appetizers ($3.75) make way for the mock chicken with chinese eggplant ($9.95), a seitan-based dish trained as a body double for chicken's grill-jumping stunts.

The ingredients used in Chinese, Japanese, and Thai cuisine are vastly different, as are the methods of preparation. At Zhuang's Garden, they come together in surprising ways. Eight crackling hibachi-grill tables and a sushi bar represent Japan, and Chinese décor and the aromas of lo mein hint at the traditions of that nation. Glasses of wine clink together above plates of Thai food at the BYOB eatery, where the dishes include curry that is the brilliant yellow of turmeric or a banana salesman’s business card.

The tantalizing smells of chicken simmering in a savory sauce or buttery lobster hit the nose before guests can fully discern where the aromas originate. They might be coming from a plate of chicken slathered with black-bean or garlic sauce or lobster buried in lo mein or fried rice. These are just some of the dishes New China Restaurant’s chefs whip up alongside classic favorites such as general tso’s chicken and mongolian beef, as well as shrimp prepared eight different ways.

Many things have changed since Snockey’s Oyster and Crab House first opened in 1912—the menu now serves scallops, mussels, and Maine lobster thanks to third-generation owners Ken and Skip Snock. However, the restaurant’s insistence on using fresh, local seafood and some of its original recipes, including Mrs. Snockey’s original oyster stew, have remained unchanged, like a stubborn Precambrian fossil.

In the wake of Snockey’s 100th anniversary, Phillyburbs.com called the restaurant a “seafood staple for locals and visitors alike,” lavishing particular praise on the variety of oysters available at the raw bar. Oysters come from as far away as the west coast, but most originate in nearby waterways such as Delaware Bay and Cape Cod. There’s also a large selection of cooked seafood including fried shrimp, broiled Atlantic flounder, and steamed littleneck clams.

Wok Chinese Seafood Restaurant fills its vast menu with an atlas of eats, drawing inspiration from China’s Hunan and Szechuan provinces as well as the capital city of Beijing. The kitchen prepares traditional favorites, whipping together hot and spicy shrimp and steamed sea bass in a scallion-ginger sauce alongside beef with broccoli and chicken lo mein. The menu also includes house specialties such as the Dragon and Phoenix, whose chicken breasts, lobster meat, and snow peas are not formally recognized by zoologists as either dragon or phoenix. Red lanterns hang above the dining room, where a mural of a woman flying through swirling clouds is complemented by the whimsy of each table’s pink-cloth napkins.
