Fun Fact about me: I don’t eat chinese food unless it’s at Golden Harvest. Never have and never will I ever. Why? Because I would never betray my family and eat at another chinese restaurant! Ok so this post is a little biased. And I’m actually quite surprised I haven’t done a post, but better late than never right?
Golden Harvest is located in the beautiful Napa Valley, in the city of St. Helena, California. It has been open since 1997 by my mother and father, Suling and Rich. They both are from Taipei, Taiwan and came to the United States in 1983. My parents open their first restaurant in downtown Napa in 1987, Peking Palace, and was opened for over twenty years.
Golden Harvest is well known with the locals of St. Helena, as a family owned and operated small business. My brother Jack now runs the restaurant alongside my mom, dad and uncle. Golden Harvest is local friendly and a very casual dining experience. Lot’s of families love to celebrate birthdays and anniversaries here.
The locals love the orange chicken, mongolian beef, hot & spicy string beans, crispy eggplant, and honey walnut prawns, just to name a few. It is just the perfect place to over order different dishes and share family style.
Now that I’m vegan, it’s still my favorite chinese restaurant because there are so many vegan options! My favorites are veggie chow fun, eggplant in hot garlic sauce, curry tofu, vegetables deluxe, hot & spicy string beans, and kung pao tofu. I could name a few more that are vegan and delicious but you’re just going to have to visit Golden Harvest yourself to find out. If you’re ever in the valley, wine tasting or just visiting, please come and support local businesses like Golden Harvest and enjoy the best chinese food you’ll ever have.
