On this date in 1977, The Mandarin House restaurant ran this ad in the Long Beach Independent Press-Telegram.
When the restaurant started in 1974 at 306 Main Street, it was called the Wong House, but when the new owner, Cho Kang Liu took over in 1975, he decided it was the Wong name and rechristened the place the Mandarin House. Liu (who was nicknamed Joe) and his wife, She Ling, served Spicy Mandarin cuisine and milder Cantonese dishes.
Tedd Thomey, writer of the Long Beach Independent Press-Telegram restaurant column,Stepping Out, especially loved the restaurant’s Moo Shi Crepes and Mongolia Beef.
