Went to Dai Ho, the other day. had the sesame sauce dry noodle, it was basically spaghetti noodles in an almost peanutty-sesame sauce, very heavily sauced, with some chili sauce too, since i requested hot/spicey. the waiter was a little gruff, but not exactly completely mean as others have stated. the dish itself was alright nothing special, i may go back again, but i'm not sure it's quite worth a trip form LA or OC. though the prices are very reasonable the noodle dish and a coke set me back a little over 5 bucks. also, the refridge case looked very interesting, what with some pig's feet, duck tongues, wicked looking hard-boiled eggs and stuff of that nature. maybe i'll try it again. is there anything here that's particular good to order, in case of a future visit?
also, went to Dumpling House another day for the fish dumplings (listing as red snapped w/ vegetable filling boiled dumplings) and they were pretty darn good. a little over five bucks for a serving (is it me or are the chinese restaurants in the sgv suprisingly reasonable in pricing). anyways, great stuff. nice flavor, and they are definitely not bland, i ate roughly have my order before even touching the chili oil condiment on the side. i could definitely live off this stuff. and it's cheap too. also, the waitress brought me a side dish of kimchi, is this normal for a chinese restaurant, and if you wanted to know, they do serve stuff like sweet and sour chicken and mongolian beef and stuff of that ilk. definitely worth it.
