i'm going to make my friends make the trek out to SGV (from west LA) in order to introduce them to real chinese food. most of them are from out of state and think panda express is the real deal.
since it will be about 6 of us, i'd like for people to sample a wide variety of dishes. we're all grad students so something <$15 would be ideal. nothing too crazy yet nothing too predictable (no dim sum, no din tai fung, no hot pot).
