If this list were titled “99 Things to Eat in Los Angeles Before You Die,” the egg rolls at Golden Deli most certainly would be on that list. With their shattery golden crust and savory, porky filling, these egg rolls will make you wonder why so many egg rolls in this world are so disappointing when such egg roll glory is possible. Golden Deli has been humming along in a San Gabriel strip mall for more than 30 years on the strength of those rolls, as well as the reliability of everything else on the long menu, from the pho (mild broth, good flavor) to the bun to the beef stew to the bánh mì. The dining room, overlooked by a giant photo of a waterfall, is perpetually packed. And almost every group of customers that sits down starts their order with these wise words: “We’ll have the egg rolls…” —Besha Rodell
