Generally spread out all over Southern California:
Boccaccio's Restaurant in Westlake Village (It's quaint and idyllically situated by a lake, I often treat people I deem significant to me there. Great place to view a sunset.), BBQ Unlimited (serves duck, albeit a slight bit over excessively oily), Sum Wu Seafood, Ocean Star, Todai, Hokkaido Seafood Buffet, and Kyushu Ramen, Pine Tree Restaurant, Evergreen Restaurant, BCD Tofu House.

Places that must be mentioned regardless:
River Inn Restaurant (A nice atmosphere built next to a shallow river of which seating accommodations can allow you to be seated in or by the water if you don't mind getting your feet wet.)
Ripplewood Resort Cafe (by far the best omelettes and potatoes I've had on the West Coast, really friendly staff. Great breakfast.)


You have quite the list there have you ever ate at any restaurants in the east coast?


I can name a few.

Red's Eats in Maine, of all the places it had to be Maine. Only a sole establishment unfortunately.

Not sure if you could consider this the East Coast or the South, in Chapel Hill there is the Cholanad. Not too far away is the Good Times Cafe, located out of Siler City, or what I call middle of nowhere (I'd say they serve something along the lines of comfort food).

I haven't eaten at any local places in Johnstown, but there's a supposedly good Szechuan Chinese Restaurant. I've even looked it up, and I only found positive reviews. One of the reviews is even from a guy who's family owns a Chinese restaurant. They even have Peking Duck and dumplings, which can be steamed or fried. They also have homemade red chili/black bean paste.


well if you ever try it... I would appreciate it if you were to give a quick review on my post plzz





Review:

It's awesome. Not so much the service, though, because the staff are pretty shaky with their English. I highly recommend it otherwise, and they have take out if the communication problem is a notable issue. The top five highlights that I think stand out the most: the owner is very friendly and likes serving Shirley Temple drinks to younger customers; the hot tea is nice and isn't bitter (it tastes like it's a mixture of at least two teas, but I can't name them); authentic fried rice (vastly different from the generic stuff that's usually found in Chinese restaurants across the US); the rest of the menu is very authentic (aside from an American food section for stubborn children); everything is obviously made from scratch.


Thanks a lot for the review Just recently I moved to a area that has its own china town not too far from me. I went to one of their restaurants, all I had was the steamed chicken over rice (it was all they had left due to closing 2 minutes before I got there) I thought this is too basic and that it couldn't be that good. I took a bite and was surprised that the Authentic Chinese food was soo much better than the substitute- Chinese food that I have apparently been eating my whole life. Now I can't enjoy myself eating Chinese food unless its authentic, furthermore I have now become a bit addicted to it.


I myself have also become addicted, and I don't care for the wannabe-Chinese food now, too. I ordered their homemade beancurd (tossed in sauce, black mushrooms, and been sprouts), mini tray for two (spring roll, beef cho cho, and shrimp toast), and fried rice. Wonderful, and it was also the first time I had fried tofu. The tofu soaked up the delicious sauce and the outside had a texture fairly similar to chicken.

I won't mention restaurant names (you could google them and find the area I live in), but I'll talk about some restaurants.

One I went to in the spring had a great entree. It was a pricey restaurant, but the food was very good quality. For an entree I got beef wellington. It was a very tender cut of filet mignon lightly seasoned with salt and pepper (it was the best, most tender and delicious cut of filet mignon I've ever had), wrapped in a puff pastry (the stuff used to make croissants). The steak was cooked, wrapped in puff pastry, and then baked until the puff pastry was done. It was then served in a puddle of gravy made from scratch. The steak was cooked medium. It was really good.

One restaurant nearby has good burgers, onion rings made from scratch, great fried clam strips, and the best lobster rolls I've ever had. I went to a restaurant in my state for New Year's Eve a few years ago and got a very good chicken pot pie made from scratch. There are definitely some good quality restaurants in my area, but most of them are in different towns, usually taking about a 30 minute drive to get to some of these places.

I live in New England, and have been to Cape Cod before. The two best New England Clam Chowders I've ever had, by far, were from two different places in Cape Cod, Massachusetts.

I can't share the name because I don't think they have any other locations, but they're a little vegan & vegetarian joint with fucking delicious food. They make being vegan easy.

That's the only place I'd personally put on a pedestal.

I live here in Manhattan and there is so much good food and variety here!
For japanese food I really like the place Kyo Ya. It is very simple and elegant and totally awesome! Very traditional.
For pizza I really like Posto, because the thin-crust pizza is always delicious and flaky and the toppings are good. Perfect with a Shirley Temple.
Other favorites are Saigon Grill for their delicious Vietnamese food. Shirley Temples are freaking amazing there! I also like a bakery called Tous le Jours in Koreatown. I love the tarts and buns there. The ice pops are delicious, especially the strawberry one as well as the green tea one.
