House of Joy is not on the same level as the Chinese food palaces down the road in the San Gabriel Valley, but if you’re in the neighborhood and short on time, this 30-year staple is where you head. The menu is massive and you can find pretty much anything you want, but we’d recommend the Chinese/Korean fusion plates. Their spicy cha chan main (black bean noodles) are great, and the Peking chicken wings are worth stuffing into your desk drawer for later.
