Wong's In Garden Grove R.I.P.

A few days ago, I pulled up in front of Wong's in anticipation of savoring the "Old School"
Cantonese fare that they do so well. I got out of the car, walked toward the door and noticed
a sign in the window that filled me with dread and despair: "Change of Ownership". What??

I questioned the waitress and was told that a Vietnamese group had bought the business and would be
opened under the name "Spicy Crab". I talked to Mr. Wong a little later, and he wasn't sure if the new owners would keep the same menu or staff. I am doubtful that the entire menu or even part will remain the same.

Hundreds of loyal Wong's customers will be very sad this summer.

      1. Good News! The new owners of Wong's/Spicy Claw have made a brilliant move. The East
        dining room is dedicated to the "Spicy Claw" menu (Crab, Crawfish, etc.) complete with butcher paper on the tables, and a dedicated menu. The (original) West room remains as it always was
        with the red naugahyde booths and the old school Cantonese menu.

        I dined there a few weeks ago and the old menu looked and tasted exactly the same.
