ISO Good old school Cantonese

I am dying for some old school Cantonese...sweet and sour pork, pork lo mein, etc...

My go to is Genghis Cohen but am looking for other options. I live in Pasadena and am willing to drive. Thanks in advance for suggestions.

  1. Mandarin Kitchen on Westwood Boulevard is my go-to place.

          Nope. In fact, for the OP, there is a Yang Chow in Pasadena.

                  That sucks. Who got their wine collection?

          1. Paul's Kitchen by the downtown produce market.

            1. chinese garden in montebello off garfield ave

              1. J R Bistro on Hill in Chinatown does very good Cantonese. Their sweet N Sour pork is the best in town.

                  Ogawak, thanks. I picked up food here last night on your recommendation and loved it. Sweet and Sour Pork (indeed, the best in town), Garlic Chicken and Schezwan Eggplant. Loved it all, I look forward to going back.
