What's the best Chinese restaurant in Southern California?
Use whatever criteria you want, whatever type of cuisine (e.g. Sichuan, Cantonese, etc.), type of food (e.g. dim sum, dumplings, noodles, fast food etc.), and price range to make your determination.
Let's not bicker about whether a particular restaurant nominated by a fellow 'Hound is right or wrong.
I just want to hear people's opinions on what they consider to be the best based on whatever criteria they want to use.
The only criteria is that it must serve some type of Chinese food -- be it fast food (Panda Express), Americanized Chinese (Yang Chow), dumplings (101 Noodle Express), or whatever strikes your fancy.
Personally, I have a hard time coming up with one. But if you put a gun to my head I'd probably say SEA HARBOUR.
There, I've committed. SEA HARBOUR would be my nominee for best Chinese restaurant in Southern California.
(Again, please, please, no debating a particular restaurant choice -- lets leave that for a later discussion, if at all.)
