The Westfield in Santa Anita houses many of the eating options in Arcadia, and Dongpo Restaurant is far and away the most upscale option in the mall. It’s a giant space with an equally giant Chinese menu, but we’ll help you narrow things down: get the roast duck and the spicy chicken. The extremely crispy duck comes out with super-thin pancakes, plus scallions, cucumber, and hoisin sauce to top your duck with, and the giant mound of fried chicken is covered with chillies, without being overwhelmingly spicy. Dongpo is fairly pricey (the whole duck will set you back $68), but it’s a great option for an occasion.
