Good Chinese in Valley?

  • s

There seem to be about a thousand Chinese places near CSUN. Are any of them good? Or anything further afield?

Also, I know that chinese and vegetarian are two words that usually don't go together, but anyone know of any chinese vegetarian?

Thanks,
Sue

        A&W gets my vote. It was recommended by many on this board and now we're regulars.

        1. Second the rec for Vegetable Delight. It's on the north side of Chatsworth Street just a bit east of Zelzah. Also, had a pretty good shrimp dish with walnuts at the Chinese place in the Vons Shopping Center - corner of Nordhoff and Reseda.

            Thanks for the rec. I went to Vegetable Delight and had a nice meal. I do not think I will ever be brave enough to try "Vegetable Kidneys" though. LOL

          2. Chinese and vegetarian do go together. There are lots of Chinese Budhists, and Budhists are vegetarians. There is a very long history of vegetarianism in China.

              Sorry, didn't mean to be culturally offensive - I knew about Chinese Buddhism, but what I meant was that most U.S. Chinese restaurants use animal stocks in their sauces even on vegetable dishes.

              Thanks for the note.
