What's your favorite Chinese restaurant IN the San Gabriel Valley and what do you order from there ?

Obviously, price is no object and it can be fancy or a hole in the wall, etc.

Also, please detail your favorite dishes there.

    Mine is Shanghai Restaurant on the second floor of the Ranch 99 plaza. I like several dishes there, including the seaweed fried fish and everything they do with tofu.
