Visalia Famous Chinese/French restaurant?

Andrew Gore | May 31, 2004 06:13 AM

I grew up in the Tulare-Visalia area of central California. It wasn't much for fine dining, but I recall hearing several times about a supposedly famous nearby restaurant. It was supposedly in the Visalia or Fresno area. It was a Chinese-style place, with a typical touristy name like Dragon Palace or something like that. Funny thing is, they actually serve French food of gourmet quality. Apparently, after they had become established as a typical Chinese place, the owners switched to French as the Chinese menu wasn't making money. Supposedly it became quite successful as a French place. I asked several locals who said they'd heard of it, but nobody actually who had eaten there. Does anybody know what I'm talking abot? Did such a place actually exist?
