A Great Heritage

California’s Capitol City, Sacramento, is well known for its historic role in California’s Gold Rush.  Founded in 1848, Sacramento has become a City full of history, culture and arts.  Out of its history came great cuisine, especially its Chinese Food.  Many do not know that during the Gold Rush and Railroad eras, Sacramento hosted thousands of Chinese immigrants and this group   influenced the development of the city and its culture. Sacramento also was given a heritage of great Chinese cuisine all around the Sacramento area.  The following is a list of the some of the best Chinese Food that can be found in Sacramento.

 Frank Fat was born in China and moved to the United States when he was 16 years old.  In 1939, Frank Fat opened his first restaurant in Sacramento just blocks from the State Capitol.  Since then Fat’s restaurants have become a part of the Sacramento landscape and its history.  Fats restaurants now exist all over the Sacramento area including Downtown, Old Sacramento, Folsom and Roseville.  And the food is still great.  Offering unique Chinese Cuisine to more American Chinese dishes, Fats Restaurants offer a unique dining experience at affordable prices.

Located in an old strip mall next to a Merry Maids and tattoo parlor, New Shanghai on Auburn Boulevard in Citrus Heights doesn’t look like much from the outside. However, once inside you discover a restaurant that offers great food and great service at a great price. The best deal in town is New Shanghai’s dinner specials that comes with one entrée of Orange Chicken, Sesame Chicken, Mongolian Beef or a seafood dish, 3 appetizers, won ton soup, rice and chow mien for under 10 bucks. And the serving size is enough for dinner that night and lunch the next day.
