While some local and beloved Chinese food spots have recently closed, there is still a long list of options in town, from P.F. Chang's to longtime favorite Moy's Cantonese.
When we asked readers to share their opinions on the best place to get Chinese food in our Readers' Choice poll, two front-runners emerged: Moy's and Tong's Hunan. We crunched the numbers, weighing results on the poll and in our extensive directory of local businesses, to name a winner: Moy's Cantonese.
The takeout and delivery spot has served Northbrook residents their Chinese food fix from the same location at Dundee and Pfingsten roads for 30 years.
"I have been going to Moy's since 1990 and the quality and taste is outstanding," wrote reader Emily Taylor. "I have tried many other restaurants (when Moy's is closed and needed a Chinese fix) and nothing compares."
Patch spoke to Moy's owner, who preferred to go by his first name, Chung, to find out the recipe to his success.
"I have no clue why we are the best!" he said. But he did know that customers love the restaurant's spicy food and its specialty, Mongolian Beef.
"After Fong's closed I was devastated, the best egg rolls anywhere," wrote reader Rich Kurnick. "Had to find somewhere new for good Cantonese. Tried Moy's and was very happy and I told him he can't retire on me like Fong's did."
Next week, Patch is looking for your opinion on the best place to do your taxes--at the last minute. The voting begins at 9 a.m. on Monday.
