Milwaukee best Chinese, 2011: Emperor of China

Your votes are in, Milwaukee, and you have selected the winners of OnMilwaukee's Best Dining 2011. We're announcing the results of this readers' poll, including our editors' pick, in a series of articles that run all October long during Dining Month on

For the fifth straight year, October is Dining Month on, presented by Concordia University. All month, we're stuffed with restaurant reviews, delectable features, chef profiles and unique articles on everything food, as well as the winners of our "Best of Dining 2011."

Year after year, Emperor of China takes our readers choice as best Chinese restaurant in Milwaukee. 2011 was no exception, easily besting the runner-up, No. 1 Chinese, by hundreds of votes.

This Brady Street staple isn't especially fancy, nor is its fare. But with excellent lunch specials, including a great egg drop soup, and emphasis on quality and fresh vegetables, the Emperor is a solid pick for the best Chinese in town.

Recognizing the specialization in Szechwan, Hunan, Shanghai, Peking or Cantonese cooking techniques, Emperor of China's menu celebrates the diversity in regional Chinese cooking.

On the menu, classics like chow mein, egg foo yung, sweet and sour pork and Mongolian beef collide with house specialties like lava chicken, kung pao shrimp and the Emperor's seafood. editors' choice: Yen Ching

Good to see Jing's moving up the ranks. It's great.
