Yang Chow, Los Angeles, CA

Yang Chow Restaurant Review

: Open since 1977, Yang Chow --- named after the town outside of Shanghai from which the five founding Yun brothers hail --- has become a Chinatown institution. Prices are reasonable, and favorites include slippery shrimp (lightly battered shrimp that are both spicy and sweet), lamb with scallions and Szechwan wontons in a zippy, aromatic broth. Other popular seafood dishes are kung pao squid, moo shu shrimp and scallops with oyster sauce. Family-style dinners are available nightly and include an egg roll, soup and guest’s choice of entrée. There’s inexpensive valet parking in back. Other locations can be found at 6443 Topanga Canyon Blvd. in Woodland Hills and 3777 E. Colorado Blvd. in Pasadena.
