Our friend Erika, who is a legit China scholar and has lived over there for longish stretches and also is a great cook of Chinese food herself, says, "I am a big fan of a small place in the ID called Ping's. The proprietress is from a city close to Beijing, and they serve the best northern fare I've found here: dumplings, fried street snacks, zhou (Chinese porridge), and other assorted dishes. Much as I would love to dine with you in China someday, Ping's is a good fix for now."
