See the Chinese Food Menu
The new year started off right for the LaHabra90631.com staff with traditional Chinese food at the Oriental Chinese Restaurant in La Habra this New Year’s Day. While some ring in the new year by going to a Chinese restaurant on New Year’s Eve, others in La Habra look forward to traditional Chinese food for their first meal of the new year and this was the case for us. I’d been driving by this place for years, always meaning to stop and try some Chop Suey, Egg Foo Young, Fried Rice, Mu Shu, Chow Mein or other tasty Chinese dish. All I can say is, finally, what a treat!
I ordered the “House Special Chow Mein.” It was delicious! It also took some time to decide on this dish what with the numerous new and tantalizing offerings listed on the menu. And, while some might say that every restaurant has a, “House Special”, this special was really special.
But, if variety is what you seek you can certainly find it here including favorites old and new like, Wonton Soup, Two Flavor Shrimp, Orange Chicken, Mu Shu Pork or for something a little more exotic maybe, Deep Fried Half Duck, Walnut Shrimp, Scallops with Lobster Sauce, Lobster with Ginger and Onion or Peking Duck. Peking Duck at a Chinese restaurant in La Habra! Who knew?
These last two menu items, Lobster and Peking Duck need to be ordered 24 hours in advance. Keep in mind that everything here is freshly prepared, the dishes mentioned here are only a sampling from their extensive menu and I was told by our server that if something is not on the menu to just ask and they will most likely be able to prepare it.
You can dine at the restaurant, order to-go, pick-up your pre-ordered party trays and the staff at La Habra’s finest Oriental Chinese Restaurant will even deliver an order of $10.00 or more if you live within 5 miles of their convenient location at, 2380 W Whittier Blvd, La Habra, CA 90631, about two blocks West (towards Whittier) on the South (away from the mountains and toward the beach) side of Whittier Blvd.
Some folks in La Habra, La Habra Heights, Whittier and surrounding communities may remember this place as the Shiang Hwa Restaurant. It’s now called the Oriental Chinese Restaurant and has been completely remodeled. Don’t let the tablecloths and upscale decor fool you, prices are reasonable. Dinner for two was under $20.00 – not including tip.
