Old School Chinese in San Gabriel Valley?
My favorite old school Chinese restaurants in the SGV are Paul's Kitchen in Monterey Park, Canton City in Montebello, and Spring Garden in Pasadena. Where else can I find good old school Chinese food in the SGV? Thanks in Advance!
Yang Chow in Pasadena serves a mean slippery shrimp, so I've been told. There are plenty of post about Yang Chow (Pasadena) on the board.
Not a lot of old school Chinese remaining in the San Gabriel Valley since there's so much demand for the real thing. I think Chinese Garden is still open on Garfield south of Via Campo in Montebello. I think Ye Loy on Las Tunas in Temple City used to fit the description, but I think there was a change of ownership and while the food is still Americanized, I don't think it's old school.
Try Chop Sticks in Arcadia (next to a place called "Mako Sushi" - which is pretty good by the way).
600 E Live Oak Ave,
There's Lotus Garden in Covina. They've been at that same location for years and they haven't changed much. Even walking into the place is like a time warp. Food is quite good, especially their chow mein.
