Golden Dragon (San Diego)
I am originally from NY and moved to SD in 1998. Chinese is my favorite food group!! I was so disappointed in the Chinese food here (most of it is just terrible!) that I thought I would have to drive to SF or fly to NY every time I wanted Chinese food.
Then I found Jimmy Wong’s. It was great. Real authentic Cantonese style Chinese food. And open until 3:00 AM..I live in Ramona so its a drive, but I would go there at least once a week.
I was so disappointed when it closed. Now I am back to eating crappy Chinese food or driving to SF when I want the good stuff.
Honkman - Jimmy Wong's is closed to make space for a "Asian-Fusion" Cafe. The sign will stay - it's been declared as historical. Hong Kong Restaurant around the corner is also opened until 3am, I believe - but I really don't care for the food. But my Wife enjoys the Wor Won Ton Mein there.
