Despite the on-the-go name, Cluck2Go is a casual sit-down restaurant with locations in Pasadena, Rowland Heights, and Diamond Bar. The otherwise Chinese-leaning menu has a few wild cards, like the French-style filet mignon, but what you’re here for is the Hainan chicken. For $10.50, you get two rows of soft, supple cuts of chicken stacked delicately on top of one another, plus half a container-full of rice. The ginger garlic sauce is nice and citrusy, and there’s a small container of pickles as well, ranging from tiny jalapeños to slices of carrots.
