A friend suggested we have our business dinner at Yang Chow. Great spot. And judging by the photos on the walls, lots of famous Angelenos feel the same. Have the Slippery Shrimp.

Having been a patron for over 30 years, the consistency unique combination of taste, spice and consistency of slippy shrimp remains extraordinary. Virtually every customer has a plate on their table and folks make pilgrimages to experience this dish.

Easy to drive right by this place, but don't. Small storefront, parking in the back with narrow alley entrance next to restaurant. We were seated immediately, quick and friendly service.

You have to wait to get in here as they do not take reservations. The place is small and cramped but the food makes it all worthwhile. Delicious Chinese (Hunan?) food served in generous portions is their thing. It is worth the wait to get...More
