China Palace Restaurant in Stockton, California, USA

Right after my mom had minor surgery in September 2016, we had some sort of a thanksgiving lunch at China Palace Restaurant in Stockton, California. Second to Japanese cuisine, I am also a big fan of Chinese dishes. I guess you can say I have a bias for any of the Oriental cuisines may it be Japanese, Chinese, Korean, or Mongolian.

Like many Chinese restaurants in the Philippines, China Palace has round tables with a revolving center. Food is placed on the revolving center. When you want something, you just turn the center to get the food you want within your reach.

The Food at China Palace Restaurant

I'm all too familiar with the food listed on the menu at China Palace Restaurant. I love Oriental cuisine and Chinese cooking is up there among my favorites. Probably the only difference is that they call it by different names compared to what I was used to back in the Philippines.

Pepper Salted Pork Chops 

My favorite dish at China Palace Restaurant is the pepper salted pork chops. The meat is tender and the breading has good flavor. It's a bit salty but just the way I like it. The chili that comes with it just adds to the really good flavor.

Deep Fried Shrimp Balls

When I'm craving for shrimp and in no mood to do some peeling, this is my go to order. 


Pepper Salted Prawns

The good thing about pepper salted prawns compared to deep fried shrimp balls is that it's all prawn meat and no flour.

Moon Cakes 

Back home in Cebu, we call these moon cakes "hopia dice" and La Fortuna Bakery makes the best of them.

Fried Sesame Balls

In the Philippines, we call this dessert item "buchi". The filling that I'm used to seeing in this dessert is peanut butter (or Chix Savour's chocolate filling). Here, they fill it with mung bean paste.

Chicken Pot Stickers 

Yet another item that we call by a different name back home. We call this Japanese-inspired dish "gyoza".

They have lots of other food items on the menu ranging from pork buns, rice cakes, seafood dishes, pork dishes, beef dishes, and chicken dishes. The dishes I listed here just happen to be my favorites from the restaurant. I'll make it a point to explore their other dishes in the future.
