Cheap Eats In San Gabriel

Chandavkl | Apr 28, 2008 01:56 PM

While my focus is usually on good eats, I can't pass up reporting on really cheap eats once in a while. Chef Boy in San Gabriel (127 S. San Gabriel Blvd.) has a three item combo for about $3.95. That's not that unusual of a deal, particularly at Chinese express restaurants in the inner city. What makes Chef Boy different is that your three choices don't include one or two rice or noodle dishes, but actually three entrees. Also, the food is an unusual mixture of Americanized and authentic items. There are a few Americanized choices such as orange chicken and broccoli beef. However, most of the food is directed towards Chinese clientele, and indeed I had no idea what a lot of the items were. (Usually that means Taiwanese food to me.) On top of the three dishes, they also give you a serving of white rice, soup, and Thai milk tea.
