San Wang Restaurant

San Wang sits in a strange juxtaposition as a Chinese restaurant in Japantown owned by a Korean family. It is the strangest, but most delicious combination of food ever. San Wang is known for their dry-fried style of cooking. Their secret dry-fried recipe comes in various forms such as dry-fried chicken, shrimp, beef, scallops, squid, green beans, and eggplant. The chicken is especially popular as they are essentially large delicious fried chicken wings of magic. I recommend trying the dry-fried chicken and shrimp or the beans if you are a vegetarian.

San Wang also offers family-style meals that serve up to 10 people. The fanciest being the Peking Dinner for $159.99 that has an assortment of dishes as well as the much desired Peking Duck dish.

The appetizers aren't anything to write home about. The potstickers take an average of 15 minutes, which is well after all your entrees arrive at this quick turn-over establishment. Plus they taste as if they are previously frozen (the potstickers at Trader Joe's are better). The soups are good especially the Hot and Sour Soup.

Come hungry and leave in a food-coma as San Wang serves up some of the best Chinese food outside of Chinatown. An average meal for two is $30-40.
