The number of Chinese restaurants on the list has tripled since the 2010-2012 era (5-6% then vs. 15% now).
That in part reflects the opening of better quality Chinese places (e.g. Wonderful, Royal feast, go Millbrae!). Cynically, as the number of non-Chinese restaurants that fulfill the $40 criteria has diminished, it has opened the door to Chinese restaurants that had previously been overlooked like Great China, China Village.
Given how pricey, say, 1601, is they might as well ditch Hong Kong lounge two and replace it with Hakkasan. Also, I am endlessly amused that Yank Sing, for which 1/3 of the Yelp reviewers, I counted, kvetch about price, is probably one of the cheaper places on the list
Brown sugar kitchen got booted from the list A few years back, so its reentry is bitter sweet.
Has anyone on the board eaten at Sichuan Home in the past few year, and if so, how is it?
