Home-Style Cantonese Food

At Tasty Garden, henrychan888 finally found hearty home cooking like Grandma used to make. For example, the salty fish with steamed ground pork–a lot of places just don’t serve it because of the strong smell. Tasty Garden serves it alone or with a rice hot pot.

The same dish is served at Phoenix in Alhambra, says cfylong, where they also have minced squab on lettuce leaves, another home-style dish. Phoenix Inn in downtown Chinatown is the original location of Phoenix restaurant, notes monku, and still has the same owner. The must-try dish there is the boneless salted chicken.

Chinese restaurant scout Chandavkl points out a hot spot of four very good Cantonese restaurants within walking distance of one another in Monterey Park: NYC Seafood, Seafood Village, LYL Garden and Lucky City. Most of these have lunch specials and fill up quickly, especially on weekends.

Tin Tin has reopened after remodeling, says kure–they have good specials up until 6 p.m.

Har Lam Kee is a good Cantonese joint, says Will Owen, and cheap too.

And at Embassy, Ciao Bob reports having had many a fine meal.
