9/10/2007: Cecil Wang has decided to close China 46 due to vacating his lease early. Let’s hope he opens up a new restaurant soon.
88 Route 46 W, Ridgefield, NJ
In a previous post about Dim Sum in Bergen County I touched upon the dumpling wonders at China 46, my favorite Chinese restaurant in the entire NYC/NJ area. But China 46 isn’t just about the dumplings, it’s range of food encompasses all sorts of Shanghainese, Sichuan and Hong-Kong style dishes, and when you compare the place to the most lauded Chinese restaurants in New York, it easily matches them in quality and is an utter bargain by comparison.
If you’re part of that tribe of people that finds themselves eating Chinese food on Christmas Day this year, I urge you to go check out this restaurant.
Here’s a collection of dishes I’ve had on various visits to the restaurant that I know you will enjoy:
Main Dining Room
The specials board, which always changes and has the freshest and best stuff on it. Be sure you comb over this and consult Cecil, the owner, before ordering anything from the menu during your visit.
