Dinner at Sichuan Impression 錦城里 in Westwood/West Los Angeles

Dinner at Sichuan Impression 錦城里 in Westwood/West Los Angeles If you’re a Chinese foodie, then you’ve been waiting for Sichuan Impression to open in the Westside since it was announced that they acquired the location that used house Jin Jiang, a Chinese American style restaurant (similar to those like Yang Chow in Chinatown) that was in business for over 25 years before shuttering this summer. Sichuan Impression originally wanted to open last Sunday, but they didn’t quite fin

Yunnan & Sichuan Dishes at Yunnan Restaurant 雲南過橋園 in Monterey Park, CA

Yunnan & Sichuan Dishes at Yunnan Restaurant 雲南過橋園 in Monterey Park, CA When eating Chinese food in the San Gabriel Valley of Greater Los Angeles, there are only a few Chinese restaurants that specialize Yunnan cuisine.  It’s probably not easy to offer considering it’s province of China that features over dozens and dozens of minority ethnic groups, such as the Miao, Dai and Bai peoples, and many of the dishes are made with regional ingredients we most likely don’t have in th

Food was excellent as

SHUTTERED: Szechuan Chef 川揚軒 in San Gabriel, CA

SHUTTERED: Szechuan Chef 川揚軒 in San Gabriel I first dined here 2 1/2 years ago when it was still called Szechuan Chef in English, but it’s Chinese name was “醉成都.”  First time back after 2 years, I was surprised to see new signage out front with a new Chinese name, “川揚軒.”  Generally, when this happens to a restaurant, it can indicate that it has gone through a change in ownership. This dishes we ordered on this night were excellent.  They weren’t shy about using the Sichuan pe
