SGV chinese food walk - thoughts?

narcissisticnonsense | Jul 17, 2013 11:57 AM

A group of friends and I are going out to SGV this weekend aiming to try as many Chinese restaurants as possible, a couple dishes at a time. (And work on our self-restraint and eating stamina.)

Although I'd love to do a Vietnamese food walk, this round is Chinese.

I have been to 101 Noodle Express, JTYH, Tasty Noodle House, Din Tai Fung, Chengdu Taste, Sea Harbour, Elite, Tang Cang Newport Seafood, Chung King, and Lucky Noodle King, and a few other places I can't remember off the top of my head.

So here's my go-to list:

Luscious Dumpling - pan fried dumplings

Wang Xing Ji - Crab and pork buns

Hui Tou Xiang Noodle House - chinese blintzes filled with pork

Chang's Garden- Hangzhou style fried fish with seaweed, dong popork and spareribs steamed in lotus leaves.

Mon Land Hot Pot City - mongolian hot pot

Shanghai No. 1 Seafood - Old Shanghai braised pork, sheng jian bao (pan fried pork buns)

Tasty Dining - Re gan mian (hot, dry sesame noodles) and dry pot with frog.

Hunan Mao - fish head and other hunan specific dishes

Beijing Pie House - lamb pie, pan fried meat cake

Beijing Duck House - peking duck

OR Nanjing kitchen - nanjing duck

Yun Chuan Garden - yunan crossing-the-bridge noodles, "spicy with spicy"

Shaanxi Gourmet- xian lamb soup, breads, hand-pulled noodles

Shen Yang Restaurant - Shen yang style fried chicken bones and Jindong meat pie

Mon Land Hot Pot City - mongolian hot pot


I also need to prioritize this list, as, alas, I don't think we have the stomachs nor cash to hit every spot on that list.

Am I missing any must-go restaurants?

I have also heard, but don't know a lot about, Dean Sin World (my favorite SGV restaurant name), Huge Tree Pastry, Mei Long Village, Mama Lu's Dumpling House, and Kim Ky Noodle House. Should any of those usurp a spot on my list?
