China Doll, Harvey, LA Report #226

Probably my last five times eating Chinese food it’s been at the Empress of China.  I love that place and have been kind of stuck on it.  I’ve always heard good things about China Doll.  I tried it once so long ago I couldn’t remember if I liked it or not, so I figured I’d… Continue reading China Doll, Harvey, LA Report #226

Nine Roses, Gretna, LA Report #167

  Can’t decided between Vietnamese or Chinese food?  Don’t stress it.  Come here and have both.  This place is located less than a block off the Westbank Expressway in Gretna, but I drove by over 1,000 times never knowing it was there.  If you’re driving towards the river on the ground level of the expressway,… Continue reading Nine Roses, Gretna, LA Report #167

Panda King, Gretna, LA Report #119

  I’m not a fan of Chinese buffets.  In fact, it’s hard for me to even consider them “restaurants”.  But, I know a lot of people love them so here’s a report on one. If you go to a Chinese buffet I suggest you go during their busiest times.  That’s when the food is freshest… Continue reading Panda King, Gretna, LA Report #119

August Moon, Harvey, LA Report #39

I’ve been coming to this place for decades.  I started going to the original uptown New Orleans location in the 1980’s, then started coming to this location after I moved to the Westbank of New Orleans 20 years ago.  Besides Chinese they also offer a Vietnamese menu, although I’ve never tried their Vietnamese food. I… Continue reading August Moon, Harvey, LA Report #39

Hoshun, New Orleans, LA Report #22

In my opinion this is the BEST Chinese Restaurant in New Orleans and every time I go there they reinforce that opinion.   A good thing is if you can’t decide between Chinese and Japanese they also have a sushi menu so you get the best of both worlds!  And they do both well. I’ve… Continue reading Hoshun, New Orleans, LA Report #22
