    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?).

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

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

          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.?

              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:
