Throughout my years in college, one of my favorite restaurants was Dragon Regency in Monterey Park. My grandparents lived in town, and it was one of our regular spots. One time, I couldn't decide what I wanted, and the waiter recommended lemon cod filets. I didn't see it on the menu, and he said, "It's not there, but the chef will make it for you."
I never again ordered anything else. And eventually, it made it onto the menu. But by then I had moved out of state, so visits were few and far between.
Flash forward to several years ago, when I wanted to take my then-fiance (now Mr. Sandwich) there. We pulled up--and it was closed, replaced by another restaurant.
I still miss the Dragon Regency, and I've never found another lemon cod dish to equal theirs. Does anyone have any suggestions?
