The New Chung King

After a few dozen meals at the original Chung King (the one on Garfield), I was unable to make it out there for about 6 months. During that time, they relocated to San Gabriel Valley Blvd. I just went there yesterday for the first time, and much to my delight, the food was every bit as good as at the original location.

The interior of the restaurant is a bit "fancier" than the original, and from what I can recall of the Hunan place that used to be there, they've sealed off the kitchen and made the place a lot brighter and more cheerful.

But who cares about the decor. It's the food that matters, and it didn't disappoint. The water boiled beef is still potent and rich, the fried chicken is still the most perfectly deep-fried i've ever had, the tofu-gan is clean and bright.

And now, they even carry beer.

Give them a visit...
