When you think about it, you probably spend more time in Glendale than you realize. The city is home to the Arizona Cardinals, hosts the Phoenix Coyotes homes games, spring training, and a good number of large concerts throughout the year. With that being said, you don't have to eat at the numerous chain restaurants that surround these popular venues. Instead, try out one of these locally owned spots in Glendale and Avondale. You might get a one-of-a-kind dining adventure or a taste of somewhere else completely.

Cantonese dominates the menu here, but the cooking isn't altered to suit a Westerner's palate.

Lucky's King Wah

If you're a truly adventurous (and trusting) diner, then you'll want to get the Chef's Choice at this south West Valley restaurant. Lucky's King Wah specializes in Cantonese cooking, but not the kind that caters to the Western palate. Owner and chef Kwok Pat makes authentic dishes such as lamb and bean curd stew or pig's stomach mixed with sour vegetables, which will all be served by this wife, Kitty. It's a no-frills restaurant, which is fine with us. We're too busy enjoying Kwok's one-of-a-kind flavors anyway.
