  1. Pretty hard to say which is the best. Good start would be this Jonathan Gold article from LA Weekly (Cross Capital Seafood off the list...just closed for a remodel and ownership change?).

      And then replacing CS with Hunan's Restaurant
      903 W. Valley Blvd. Alhambra, CA, 91803

        I was just at Capital Seafood last Saturday. Did this closing happen since then?

      2. I didn't know that part of the site was working, again. Thanks! I just printed the list as a PDF!

        1. It depends on the particular specialization of Chinese cuisine you are looking for and your personal preferences. Are you looking for dim sum, seafood, dumplings, Cantonese, Shanghainese, Taiwanese, spicy, etc.?

          1. i love cantonese??????

            1. For dim sum, try 888 in Rosemead or Ocean Star in Monterey Park. You can also get good seafood from both places, although 888 has more of a chiu chow influence. MPV in Alhambra is also pretty good. Triumphal Palace in Alhambra has been highly recommended by a number of people. If you want just simple chow mein and rice dishes, try Sam Woo BBQ in Alhambra or Tasty Garden in Alhambra & Arcadia (Tasty Garden is a Hong Kong-style cafe). Although Kim Ky in San Gabriel is chiu chow, it has some really good soup noodle dishes.

              I have some mini-reviews compiled:
