Did a Chinatown restaurant steal the secret sauce?

That month, Huang and Liang opened Chu Shang Spicy, at 925 Arch St., under the legal name Laoma Philly LLC. The New York restaurant’s corporate name is Laoma Spicy LLC.

Name disputes among Chinatown restaurants are not uncommon. After Xi’An Famous Food opened at 902 Arch St. in 2013, it received word from the New York restaurant of the same name. It later was renamed Xi’an Sizzling Woks.

In another case, a settlement was reached three years ago to separate the rival restaurants called Dim Sum Garden. The one at 1020 Race St. uses the Dim Sum Garden name, while the original restaurant, at 59 N. 11th St., is called Tom’s Dim Sum.
