If you didn’t catch the TV show, The Quon Dynasty, about the family who runs this restaurant, now is your chance to familiarize yourself with their cuisine. They’ll serve dry spicy chicken and Chinese mini doughnuts. The doughnuts, which are drizzled with a sugary sauce, made their debut last year and are making their triumphant return to the festival (they're vegetarian, too!).

When you step into The Lingnan, you’re welcomed into an Oriental abode filled with traditional lanterns and gold and red décor. This family-owned business has been serving up piping-hot Chinese cuisine since 1947. While some would say the menu is mainly western-influenced Chinese food with a few authentic dishes, you can’t deny the tastiness of dishes, such as the hot and dry spicy chicken or the canton lemon chicken. Matriarch Amy Quon is a force to be reckoned with. Her boundless enthusiasm as she greets customers, many by name, is contagious.

The Quon family opened the Lingnan in its original location in 1947, then moved to the current location in 1963. Decades later, the restaurant remains one of the most popular places in the city to enjoy Cantonese and Szechuan cuisine. Popular dishes include Mandarin beef, black bean chicken and crispy nest, which comes with your choice of beef, chicken or shrimp and scallops. Delivery can take anywhere between 60 to 90 minutes during the week, and up to two hours on weekends, so plan accordingly.
