Roy Choi recently relocated his westside rice bowl concept Chego to Chinatown. The new digs once belonged to the original Mandarin Deli where Angeleno’s were first introduced to hand pulled noodles in the 1970’s. Jonathan Gold is a fan of Choi’s enormous flavor-bomb rice bowls. He recommends the sour cream hen house bowl, kung pao noodle bowl, ooey gooey fries and the squish and destroy sandwich.
