La China Restaurant Review

: At La China, the food is a bargain. The house specialty is the crispy chicken with piquant orange sauce --- so expect some heat in this tasty dish. Mongolian beef and the broccoli beef are also standouts, along with the shrimp in lobster sauce. Mu shu fans have a choice of pork, beef, chicken and shrimp. Keep an eye on the blackboard for seasonal items, such as al dente stir-fried asparagus garnished with shrimp. Shanghai-style egg rolls are satisfying, and we enjoy the creamy pecan shrimp and crunchy pan-fried noodles.
