Rec for first time "real" chinese food? Willing to drive...

fooddude37 | Nov 21, 2006 10:21 PM

So, the last "real" chinese food I had was years ago at Green Village before it closed. I'm taking my SO, who's never had anything but mall and gringo Chinese, we're not really looking for dim sum, what would be a good place to start out? I'd like to go somewhere that's the real deal, but where I won't be out of place ordering for us (I know next to nothing about ordering Chinese food, I've read a bunch about all the provinces and the differences but I can't remember a damn thing, I remember something like Yellow Croaker with sauteed liver moss at green

I assume we'll be driving to Rosemead or SG Valley...thanks in advance!
