Lunasia

EatLA-1432

WHY Well-crafted dim sum by day and well-executed upscale Chinese cooking by night, served in an attractive dining room for surprisingly modest prices. WHAT The dim sum gets more attention at this swank Cantonese place on Alhambra’s auto row, but we think the dinner is equally worthy. As is the trend now in your classier [...]

New Moon

EatLA-1233

WHY The Chinese chicken salad. WHAT It’s not the most authentic Chinese food, not by a long shot, but New Moon makes a damn fine Chinese chicken salad and perfectly acceptable won ton soup, fried rice and stir fries—and the won ton strips with a plum dipping sauce are a tasty variation on chips and [...]

Luscious Dumplings

EatLA-1393

WHY Pan-fried pork dumplings that will have you eating far more than propriety or good health demand. WHAT Given the amount of competition, particularly in these parts, it takes a lot of chutzpah to call yourself ‘Luscious Dumplings,’ but this simple café’s wares deserve the appellation. Each dumpling’s covering sports a different decorative pleating that [...]

Supreme Dragon

EatLA-556

WHY Crusty-bottomed pan-fried pork bao with slightly fluffy coverings, the fresh scallion dumplings, the salted vegetables stir-fried with torn bean curd sheet, and more such little treasures. WHAT At Supreme Dragon, diners are given a long sushi bar-style list of about 80 northern and Shanghai-style pastries and small dishes. The restaurant’s attempts at elegance—waterfall curtains, [...]

Shanghai Restaurant

EatLA-555

WHY Ambitious cuisine for discriminating eaters. WHAT In its coveted spot—the second floor of the huge Chinese Focus Plaza—Shanghai could probably get by serving the usual cold wine chicken, spicy cold beef tendon and a few pedestrian hot pots. Those are on the menu, but the kitchen turns out more sophisticated fare, such as poached [...]

Omar

EatLA-1751

WHY For the little-known Muslim fare of Xinjiang, China’s autonomous far western region. WHAT The food at this homey café, a mesh of Chinese elements and central Asian nomad cooking, likely bears little resemblance to anything you’ve eaten in L.A. Sure, Xinjiang lamb kebabs are well known, but owner Munire Omar brings out zhuafan, a [...]

Café Spot

EatLA-816

WHY A spirited scene, plus lots to choose from on the long menu. WHAT One of the San Gabriel Valley’s many Hong Kong—style coffee shops, Café Spot stands out for the quality of its food. This is the place to go for dishes like Grand Mom’s braised pork belly and the Hong Kong—style waffle. 500 [...]

Yunnan Garden

EatLA-1328

WHY To discover the flavors of China’s Yunnan province. WHAT A brightly lit Chinese café like a thousand others in the area, with the brusque service that’s the norm. But the culinary style is more uncommon: the robust, chile-laden food of the mountainous Yunnan province, which fills China’s southwest corner. Try the crossing-the-bridge noodles, cumin [...]

Newport Seafood

EatLA-1390

WHY A glistening mountain of lobster, sautéed with lots of garlic, scallions and ginger. Superb giant clams, too. WHAT Occupying a bright former coffee shop, Newport is handsome enough to attract business lunchers by day and upscale celebrators by night. And because the house specialties are four- to six-pound lobsters, as well as crab and [...]

Dumpling House

EatLA-1558

WHY Good, cheap dumplings and other Shanghai dishes that you can eat here or have made quickly to take out. The scallion pancakes are even more essential to order than the dumplings. WHAT A little more downmarket than nearby (and much more famous) Din Tai Fung, this friendly café and takeout joint is also known [...]
