Genghis Cohen is not the best Chinese food in Los Angeles. But for a city that lacks dependable casual Chinese spots, this 30-year-old joint is an outright savior. The large Fairfax space is a total neighborhood haunt, where at any point you can find the majority of your neighbors eating the same number of wontons as you are. But if you’re in the market to have those New-York style egg rolls and Walnut Shrimp come right to you, order their reliable delivery right to your lap.
