*Cough* *cough* Pasadena Chinese delivery

HooAe Mar 18, 2007 04:18 PM

*cough cough* so I'm sitting here sick at home and I have this huge craving for some Chinese food. Doesn't have to be the best in the world...but at least palatable. I'm right by Pasadena City College. Any help is really appreciated *cough cough*

    Dearest cough - Cry no more! Call Go China. They're on Lake at Walnut next to Ralphs. Food is great and they will deliver. No menu on line! I always recommend anything shrimp. But, maybe their wonton soups would be the right thing for you: 626-793-3888
    Love their food! (eggplant is the bomb!)

      This is interesting to me because we ordered Cashew Chicken, egg rolls and fried shrimp Friday night at work and the first two items were horrid. I never toss food but I tossed this almost as quickly as I got it. At first I thought the food was just average but after a few bites I found the food to be horrid. My workmates would never let me order from them again. Bad night?

        I think so. Sorry for your bad meal. I had many a cashew chicken and it's always been good. I'vd been ordering food at Go China for about 6-7 years on a regular basis but, haven't been for about 6-8 months So, they may be on the down swing with ownership. Not sure.

        I, too, had a hankering for Chinese this evening while battling a cold. I turned to the ever-dependable Fu-Shing, which usually delivers to my Caltech neighborhood home usually in 30 mins. or less. It's pretty darned good food, especially delivered.

            If Fu Shing delivers, you should definitely go for them. I'm used to eating SGV authentic Chinese food and even Fu Shing is quite good for me.

              We usually order from Fortune and it's fine. Go China must have had a bad night.

                echoing the rec for Fu-shing..especially if you're sick. We swear that one dish on their menu has magical cold fighting abilities...called Spicy Soupy Peppery Beef (or something like that)....quite spicy, really clears out your sinuses, chest congestion and any bugs lingering in your system. My husband thinks it should be the new Robutussin flavor. Feel better soon!

                  haven't tried go china or fu-shing YET .... but i always get my chinese takeout from Grandview Palace (there's one on fair oaks and california and another on colorado -- although, I always call the fair oaks one). when i'm sick, it's all about the war won ton soup.

                    I second (or third) the rec. for Fu-Shing and we've also had good food from Grandview Palace (but we go to the one on Colorado - keep meaning to try the one on Fair Oaks but haven't quite gotten there, yet).

                      We used to order take-out frequently from the Grandview Palace on Fair Oaks and I really liked it. We haven't had it lately, but now I am kind of craving it. Plus, we have a very hard-to-find house, and the delivery people were always so friendly...
