Lucky's King Wah

This sparse but tidy home of Cantonese cooking in Glendale comes courtesy of Kitty and Kwok Pat, who have been part of the Valley’s Chinese restaurant scene for over 40 years. With more than 100 items in their Chinese menu as well as several specials (listed in Chinese) on dry erase boards covering the restaurant’s walls, Lucky’s enormous selection of average to satisfying to very good dishes is almost too much to contemplate. Best to ask for the Chef’s Special, where, depending on your preferences, the Pat’s will serve up an array of dishes that may include the conventional Shanghai (Sing High) chicken with a delectably crispy skin; a ginger-spiked lamb and bean curd stew; and offal offerings like pig’s stomach mixed with crunchy, sour vegetables.
