Very good Chinese in the suburbs.
Ling Ling's is a very good Chinese restaurant that has been in business for 25 years that I know of. I frequented their Syracuse restaurant while it was open and visited their original restaurant in Manlius when the downtown site closed. The egg rolls are fresh, they will make anything you ask even if not on the menu. I particularly love their chicken and shrimp in brown sauce which is not on the menu but was a featured item in their former location. It's not NYC Chinatown but I've never been disappointed.
