Jardin De China
When you arrive at this cash-only Chino Latino spot in Corona, the shades might be drawn in a way that looks very closed, but don’t worry. Inside Jardin De China, you’ll find a large dining room with lots of space for groups, red lanterns hanging from the ceiling, and people who know that all the best meals begin with free bread, which they bring to your table almost instantly. Here, you might eat lomo saltado in a red leather booth next to someone who is celebrating their 5th grade piano recital, or a group of friends catching up over beer and chicharrones de pollo. At the end, they’ll give you a fortune cookie. Ours read: Keep your goals away from the trolls.
