Welcome to the Lucky Fortune Cookery!
A week ago, my family and I visited California Adventure to attend the Oogie Boogie Bash. We decided to grab an early dinner before the party started. We found ourselves in Pacific Wharf and rather than go to our old standby, the Pacific Wharf Café, we decided to try the Lucky Fortune Cookery.
This seating area is central to all Pacific Wharf quick-service eateries
As you can probably tell from the name, the Lucky Fortune Cookery specializes in Asian quick-service fare. The ordering section is outdoors and shaded, and colorful paper lanterns decorate the area.
There is a central seating area in Pacific Wharf which also welcomes guests who have purchased food from the above mentioned Pacific Wharf Café as well as Cocina Cucamonga, which serves Mexican fare. This area can become quite congested during peak mealtimes, but at 5:00 p.m. we found plenty of seating available. This might also have to do with the fact that California Adventure was closing at 6:00 p.m. to the general public because of the hard-ticketed Oogie Boogie Bash beginning at 6.
I can’t remember the last time this happened, but my entire family ordered the same thing: Teriyaki Chicken, for $12.00 each. It came with white rice, broccoli, carrots and water chestnuts. My husband and I also each got a Lucky Dragon IPA, for $11 each.
The portion size was decent, and the chicken was cooked nicely. The teriyaki sauce was sweet without being cloying, and the vegetables were cooked well, still maintaining a pleasant crunch. The rice was cooked just right.
The Lucky Dragon IPA was cold and refreshing, and hit the spot on a hot late September Southern California Day. It was crisp and had hints of citrus in it. The label said that the lemons and oranges used were both locally sourced.

Here’s the bottom line: The food here is fine, but nothing special. If you have a good Asian take-out restaurant near you, you’ll probably get something nearly identical to what we ordered. Although I’m not disappointed in my meal, the next time we find ourselves in Pacific Wharf I think I’ll head to the Pacific Wharf Café instead, where the food is something I don’t get to enjoy every day.
But if you are in the mood for Asian food, this is a perfectly serviceable fast food spot, with good portions of food that should serve you well for either lunch or dinner.
