Yangtze Chinese Restaurant in downtown Ontario marked its 50th anniversary on April 22. Reader Jane Vath O’Connell shares a copy of an old menu. Click on the thumbnail below for a readable view. One highlight: “Lobster Cantonese $2.35 (Shelled $2.45).” I say, live it up and pay the extra dime.

    I was going to Chaffey H.S. and working part time at Butler Bros. where my mom worked. We’d often go there for lunch. I still make time to go there when I come up from San Diego. Yumm!

  • Pay the extra dime? That’s almost a gallon of gas!

    Can you believe what you got for the price??? The Chung King in Pomona was just as good in the day!!

    Unconfirmed report on Claremont Courier website of a new restaurant going into the former Casa Flores space. Perhaps owned by same folks as Back Abbey. What’s the word on the mean streets of the Village?

    [You know more than I do, Bob, but that sounds like good news. (I wonder what qualifies as a mean street in the Village — Harrison Ave.?) Btw, look for Friday’s Restaurant of the Week about another Claremont burger place. — DA]
