Best Chinese in BR?
Are there any quality Chinese spots? Nine Dragon just isn't doing it for me.

re: Best Chinese in BR?
Somebody started this same thread last week. I was in BR on business Thursday night and on the boards recommendation I gave Omi a try and thought it was good. Order off the Chinese menu not the Japanese menu. They have some menu items not in your traditional American Chinese place like intestine. They will cook a whole fish for you head and all. The chef/owner told me he was the private chef for some well known Chinese general. I tried several things like fried intestine and some dish called climbing ant on the tree or something like that and thought it was good. Note it wasn't ants.

Had some New China for lunch. It's nothing to write home about but it got the job done.

I prefer 9 Dragon Noodle House over Omi. Dry chili beef, stewed pork belly with salted veg., crab w/ ginger & scallion, sautéed pig liver, amazing chicken, Mongolian beef, Singapore chicken, chili chicken - its all excellent.

Oriental Pearl on Govt is always good and reasonable priced. Large portions.

OP Sherwood/Coursey is in another stratosphere vs their Govt St location, and literally just owned by the same folks, the superiority of Jenny's husband's fare vs their family cooking on Govt St is rather mind boggling.

And Nine Dragon on Highland at Lee vs their Mellow Mushroom take-out store much the same story.

BR is a Chinese dining wasteland, but Omi, Nine at Lee, Pearl At Coursey, Hunan, Chang's, Paul Wong's, all have dishes that excel. Also Thai Chili, Thai Pepper, and Thai Kitchen's chefs do better fried rices and Chinese dishes than the lionshare of BR Chinese places..they aren't wussified!

Omi is hands down the best by a mile.
Baton Rouge is sorely lacking in cheap takeout American Chinese, however.

One is 9 Dragon and the other is Nine Dragon. I don't think they have the same owners.

Nine Dragon Noodle House, Omi are the best in town imo. I prefer Nine Dragon Noodle House to Omi because its consistently good. I've had several bad meals at Omi. China Bear Perkins is also pretty good for take out.
