‘Enjoy ‘Rich and Famous’ Robin Leach’s favorite, Chef Cheng’s Mandarin & Szechwan food’
Statement: “Enjoy ‘Rich and Famous’ Robin Leach’s favorite, Chef Cheng’s Mandarin & Szechwan food,” says every menu at China Too, 915 5th Ave.
Determination: Mostly True
Analysis: There’s nothing extravagantly glamorous about the Gaslamp Quarter restaurant called China Too. Its small tables, oriental exterior and disposable paper menus give it the typical décor of a Chinese takeout restaurant.
So it came as a surprise to read the endorsement of Robin Leach on the front of its menu. Leach, now entertaining Las Vegas crowds, is best known for his reports on the television show Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous, which ended production in the 1990s.
So is the fare at China Too Leach’s favorite? We gave him a call to find out. When told the name of the restaurant, Leach asked where it’s located. When told its address and neighborhood, he still couldn’t recall ever being there.
