Was in San Diego for a quick visit and ended up at Chiko https://www.chikoca.com/ in Encinitas for dinner. This isn’t a real review I’ll save that for someone else but it felt like a better version of something Roy Choy would do. Bold flavors but well executed.
We had a lamb dish with thick noodles (good qq not over cooked) & some nice stir fried shimp on top of a rice porridge among a few other things. Don’t know if i’d go too far out of the way for it but all in all pretty good for the neighborhood.
