Welcome to Chinatown LA...(New Chinatown) I have been going here since I was kid with my Dad for way over 40 years. Best place to buy Dim Sum fresh and hot! As a former Peace Officer I can tell you it is a safe place to eat because it is Cop Hangout. We use to go here for lunch or dinner after booking someone at LACJ just down the street. Parking is crowded at times but free and secure After all the neighhborhood is...well what can I say..it's Downtown LA. The Chinese food is Cantonese Style. I would Rx the Special Chow Mein with Pan Fried Noodles, Half a Roast Duck, War Wonton, Beef with Bean Cake,Steamed Rice,and a Tsing Tao Beer. They have a lot of Rice Plate orders too. The place shows it's age but you go here for the great food at great prices. The people you see here is like going to the Airport..for sure you will see many nationalites here especially Filipinos, Chinese, Mexicans, South Americans, and European Tourists and of course us the Local Native SO Californians...It is truly a melting pot of the USA and it is an awsome experience.Won Kok (what a name huh?) is open at around 11:00am and closes at 3:00am...that's another reason it's a Cop Hangout.The portions they give you are to feed a Linebacker! So....If you like Good Chinese Cantonese Food at Great Prices and aren't hung up on ambiance of table clothes with flowers vases,and Vivaldi playing over the speakers, then my friend this is the place to go!Won Kok...a real find and truly indicative ofthe SO Cal Lifestyle.
