Greetings from Boston - Coming to the LA area next month and desperately looking forward to having really great Chinese food such that we just do not have in Boston. I have been reading though a number of threads here as well as reading LA Eater for ideas of where to go in SGV, but I am finding myself overwhelmed by the sheer number of choices and it makes it difficult as I do not know the area at all. Also, the kicker is that I have a shellfish allergy and this is sometimes a challenge in Chinese restaurants, where so many of the dishes seem to contain shrimp or another shellfish.
I would greatly appreciate if someone could suggest a couple good meat-centric restaurants where shellfish does not star on the menu. Spouse loves oxtail and is a nose to tail eater. Thanks!
