Montebello, California good eats

I enjoy their "Cantonese style" chow meins (which contain veggies like sprouts, onions and bok choy), chop sueys, shrimp Cantonese with lobster sauce, egg foo young (oval patties with brown gravy), and their egg rolls which are pretty good too. This place has been around since the mid '60s.

Montebello, California good eats

Been coming to Montebello for decades to get my fill of good eats from my favorite places like J&S, Taco Village, Tony's Italian Deli, Canton City, Amy's Bakery, and Broguiere's Dairy for their famous milk, chocolate milk and egg nog!

Pho-Licious - Delicious Pho in Arcadia

Have eaten here a couple of times and really enjoyed the filet mignon pho and the bbq pork pho. Love the sweetness of the broth. Look forward to trying the Kobe beef pho next time. However, was very disappointed with their egg rolls which have a "cardboard" taste IMO.

Monrovia Has The Best Zen

Got to add my two cents worth. Zen Buffet in Monrovia and Osaka Seafood in Hacienda Heights are my two favorite Asian buffet places in the SGV with Yummy Yummy Seafood in El Monte being the worst! Went to Yummy Yummy on a recent Saturday when they first opened and more than half of the steam table items weren't available and even after I left 45 minutes later they were still missing many items! The food quality at Zen and Osaka was much better IMHO!

Best pho in Los Angeles proper

Thanks WildSwede! Tried the charbroiled pork pho at Pho 79 in Alhambra the other day and loved it! The pork just melted in your mouth and the broth was so delicious!

Orleans Corner, Arcadia... anyone been?

Add Gene's Grinders in Monrovia for great sandwiches and the best pastrami in the SGV IMHO.

Anyone know if Heinz kosher dill pickles are available in the greater LA area, and if so, where?
The only ones I ever see at markets are the hamburger dill chips. Thanks!

Wang's Place in Monrovia for Sunday Champagne Brunch

I tried the Sunday champagne brunch at Wang's Place in Monrovia for the first time and thoroughly enjoyed it! They offer about 20 items including two kinds of soup and several desserts for $13.99 ($5.99 for children under 10). Their hot & sour soup is so good! They change a few of their buffet items each month, and if you're not a champagne drinker, you can get soft drinks instead. The Sunday brunch is from 11:00am to 2:00pm.

Grinder spots in Pasadena....

WildSwede,
Glad to hear that you enjoyed the pastrami at Gene's! It's my favorite place for pastrami in the SGV and I love many of their other grinders like the tuna which I get with sliced tomatoes - yum!

Grinder spots in Pasadena....

I called the Gene's Grinders in Monrovia and was informed that they are not affiliated with the Gene's Grinders on Arrow Hwy in Covina or the one in La Verne.

Grinder spots in Pasadena....

WildSwede,
I've been going to Gene's Grinders in Monrovia for over a decade and my favorite grinders are the meatball, tuna, grilled kielbasa, and of course their tasty pastrami which is my favorite in the SGV. Their pastrami is opposite of The Hat - not overly greasy, fatty or salty. They bake their own rolls for the grinders, but when they run out they close early which is normally around 3 to 4:00pm.
This place is truly a little gem that's been in Monrovia for many decades!

Egg Foo Yong

Not in the Buena Park area, but if you're ever in Montebello, my favorite egg foo young is at Canton City. I've been going here for decades to get my fill and they serve the patties with a smooth brown gravy. Check out the photo of the egg foo young on their website:
