The Fortune Cookie Chronicles: Adventures in the World of Chinese Food by Jennifer 8. LeeIf you think McDonalds is the most ubiquitous restaurant experience in America, consider that there are more Chinese restaurants in America than McDonalds, Burger Kings, and Wendys combined. New York Times reporter and Chinese-American (or American-born Chinese), Jennifer 8 Lee, traces the history of Chinese-American experience through the lens of the food. In a compelling blend of sociology and history, Jenny Lee exposes the indentured servitude Chinese restaurants expect from illegal immigrant chefs, investigates the relationship between Jews and Chinese food, and weaves a personal narrative about her own relationship with Chinese food. The Fortune Cookie Chronicles speaks to the immigrant experience as a whole, and the way it has shaped our country.

When we first started dining in and having delivery the food and service were amazing. Why they switched boggles my mind, the food has fallen off and the service has also. One night they forgot an item we ordered and when my wife called the Eating in our out, Fortune Cookies in Orange is an excellent choice for a wide variety of Chinese dishes. The service is excellent and the food is as good as any Chinese restaurant I have visited.

While this small restaurant next to a Los Alamitos strip mall offers typical Americanized Chinese fare like chop suey, it also has a good variety of seafood and vegetarian offerings. The restaurant promises its patrons that it offers a healthier alternative to typical Chinese food, which is often laden with fat, salt and MSG. A dietician was brought in to evaluate the menu, and provide calorie counts and dieting and diabetic exchanges for each dish, which are listed on the menu, according to manager William Yen. On my first visit, a friend and I arrived for a late lunch on a Saturday and were seated next to a window that looked on to a tiny Asian garden and koi pond. Since we arrived after the main lunch crowd, service was prompt and pleasant. We both ordered the daily luncheon special, which was an excellent value. The shrimp was fresh and the asparagus was flavorful, cooked so it was crisp, not mushy, and it retained its bright green color.
