After running kitchens in early hotspots such as the "IT" Club and Six Bells, Violet Wong went on to become a culinary pioneer in El Cerrito by introducing Chinese American food. In 1945, Violet and her husband, Albert Wong, opened Violet's Dining Room just south of here. They offered everything from chop suey and Chinese fire pot cooking to an American favorite, apple pie.
