    Named after the spicy seafood sauce invented in Hong Kong in the 80s that was itself named after extra old cognac, XO Taste offers Cantonese food with international flair - Japan, India, Thailand, Korea, France, Mainland China, USA and wherever scallops with mayo and cheese are considered a good idea. Baked pork chop and American cheese rice casserole was surprisingly not disgusting and even delicious in a busy mom's home cooking kind of way. For a true Chinatown bargain, forget $1 dumplings and get XO’s 6 for $3.95 pork and shrimp gyozas that are more than 4 times the size and quality. The fish in corn sauce was served in a smooth taxicab yellow sauce that was subtler than the usual open-can-and-pour creamed corn sauce. It’s easy to order wrong from the over 400 item menu, but XO’s dumpling noodle soups and thick creamy congees may be the best in Manhattan. Don’t ignore the walls well hung with illustrated specials such as ox penis soup. You know you’ll love it. xoxo

    I plan to go back sometime and order the Japanese dumplings and a bowl of hot and sour soup and a beer and read my book.
