China 1968 is a small family-owned Chinese strip mall specializing in take-out. I was told that the reason for 1968 is that those are lucky Chinese numbers.

My review is about the fried chicken. There are two fried chicken varieties here: The Salt & Pepper Boneless Fried Chicken Breast, and the Salt & Pepper Fried Chicken Wings. They're made to order, so they took a little bit to come out.

Once served, the fried chicken pieces look similar to other Asian offerings with their thin, hard batter made of flour, and starch of potato or corn or both. They smell like heaven and are fried to a rich golden hue. I remember picking up my first wing and its crunchy, crackly fried coating shattering as my teeth penetrated its crust, and a mini-explosion of liquid smearing warm chicken juices mixed with frying oil on my lips and tongue. I could taste chicken, salt, pepper, garlic, ginger, and hot pepper flakes. Great moisture, great crunchiness, great soft chicken meat, great spice blend.

This unassuming strip-mall hole-in-the-wall serves some of San Diego's best fried chicken, and you should come here if you want what may be among the best Asian-style Salt & Pepper Fried Chicken you'll have anywhere.

Meals are delicious! The food is excellent, they have boba drinks and the deliver! I love the orange chicken. The cream cheese wontons are amazing! Customer service is on point. They are so great to the kids. If you haven't ordered here yet I strongly suggest trying it!

This place has authentic Chinese food, the orange chicken actually has lots of chicken inside, the ramen special soup is delicious and please get taro boba drink for dessert. I have been there several times and I highly recommend this restaurant
