What we're about
The Chinese cuisine in the SGV (San Gabriel Valley) has been rated the best in the U.S. Let's get together to try out different Chinese restaurants from Rowland Heights to Monterey Park! We will also venture out to neighboring areas bordering the SGV such as Artesia, Highland Park, Chinatown, and Chino Hills. However, we may have an occasional event in other parts of the LA, OC, San Bernardino, Riverside and Ventura Counties. Why limit ourselves from being able to enjoy good Chinese food outside of the SGV?
We will be dining at eateries that offer cuisine from different parts of China such as Cantonese, Sichuan, Uyghur, Tibetian, Shanghaiese, Dongbei, Hunan, Shaanxi and Korean/Yanbian. There are also variations of Chinese cuisines from areas outside of China, and we will be dining on those variants as well such as Chinese American, Indo-Chinese from India, Chiu Chow from Vietnam/Cambodia, Chaufa from Peru, Thai Chinese, Korean Chinese, Singaporean and more. Be prepared to share the dishes family-style. Ability to speak Chinese is a plus, but all backgrounds and ethnicities are welcome. Be sure to bring cash, as many places do not accept credit cards.

5. For events designated as Family-Style Dining: Dining for this event has been designated as Family-Style. The food bill will be split evenly between all attendees. Attendees will be responsible for paying for their own beverages. Please note that flexibility is an important part of family-style dining, and if you want to take a chance on attending, you have to be amenable to what the group/AO will order. You don't have to eat everything that is ordered, but everyone pays equally, whether you eat everything or not. Most of the dishes we order will be at least moderately spicy. If this definition of Family-Style Dining doesn't feel comfortable, this may not be the right type of event for you. In addition, if you have ANY dietary restrictions or ingredients you do not wish to consume, then you may want to skip this event. Ordering dishes modified to fit someone's dietary needs or personal tastes will alter the true flavors of those dishes for the rest of the group.
6. Be sure to bring CASH to pay for your portion of the bill.
