Panda Express

I’m not afraid to admit that Panda Express is one of my guilty pleasures! I don’t go there often but when I do it’s always a treat. Here’s a visit from one of my recent trips to Palmdale. Some kind of one item combo bowl thing with outstanding orange chicken and chow mein.

Pei Wei Asian Diner

Outstanding Kung Pao chicken bowl at Pei Wei in 4S Ranch!

Dragon Chinese Cuisine

I always love ordering my fried rice or chow mein “House Special” style! Such a tasty plethora of proteins. Beef, chicken, pork, shrimps, etc. Dragon Chinese Cuisine in Carmel Mountain Ranch is consistently excellent.

Iron Wok

Tasty house special fried rice at Iron Wok in Rancho Bernardo!

Mediocre Mongolian Beef at Iron Wok in Rancho Bernardo. Will not be ordering this again.

Outstanding Kung Pao Chicken lunch special with fried rice at Iron Wok in Rancho Bernardo! Comes with salad.

Oriental House

Back in Yuma! Seems like I was just here LOL. I was determined to find some good Chinese food on this trip and I did just that. I went to Oriental House on 4th Avenue. Or as the locals call it, “The O-House”. This is a really cool restaurant with just the right amount of funky. It’s obvious this place used to be some sort of diner back in the day. I ordered the House Special Fried Rice and it was outstanding! The won ton soup I started with was some of the best I’ve had. Looking forward to coming back here.

Pei Wei

Probably one of the most irresistible dishes I order at Pei Wei is their outstanding Dan Dan Noodles! They do a really good job on this one. This epitomizes Asian comfort food for me.

Pei Wei Asian Diner

Very very “Spicy Korean Bowl” at Pei Wei! I like spicy but this one was a bit too much for me! 😭

Pei Wei Asian Diner

“Wei Better” Orange Chicken with Veggies at Pei Wei! I’ve had their original orange chicken dish and while delicious, it can become monotonous. This version adding wok-seared veggies is outstanding! It really rounds out the dish nicely.
