Northeastern Chinese cuisine

Nestled in La Jolla, CA, Mandarin House is a popular dining spot for locals who enjoy Chinese cuisine. Facing fierce competition from Chinese restaurants in the surrounding area, Mandarin House has made itself a winner by sticking to its roots —quality food at a reasonable price.

Unlike most Chinese eateries featuring Americanized Chinese cuisine, Mandarin House features extensive selections of authentic Northern cuisine, in the hope of bringing the real Chinese food to the community. To better cater to customers’ needs, the owner Mr. Luo has slightly adjusted the tastes of his dishes.

Signature dishes at Mandarin House include the Roast Duck Peking Style and Kung Pao Chicken. Roast Duck Peking Style is a dish that you may find in many of the restaurants, while Mandarin House’ version is derived from the secret recipes that have been passed on for generations. Someone who wants to have a real taste of Chinese cuisine, Roast Duck Peking Style is a tempting appeal and really worth trying.

What really sets the restaurant apart is the special homemade sauce. Of course, the recipe is a secret but customers won’t mind as long as it continues to be offered. $10 is enough to enjoy a delicious lunch and dinner. If you are in or near La Jolla, CA, make sure to stop by this culinary gem.
