Foo Chow Restaurant
Most restaurants can’t say they had a cameo in Rush Hour, nor feel the need to paint that fact onto the side of their building. But then again, most restaurants aren’t Foo Chow. This family-owned restaurant has been around since 1977, serving up standard comfort dishes like wonton soup, sweet and sour pork, fried pork chops, and orange chicken to both Jackie Chan and people who aren’t Jackie Chan. Since 2020, they’ve added an idyllic courtyard patio, where you can enjoy your food under swaying paper lanterns and twinkling satellites in the sky.
