I need a great Chinese restaurant in Monterey Park. Any suggestions? Can be a seafood place or not.
There are literally dozens of great Chinese restaurants inj Monterey Park, of which I would particularly recommend Charming Garden, for Hunanese cooking; Lake Spring Cuisine, for new-wave Shanghainese cooking; AAA for Chiu Chow food; the new Empress Harbor for high-end Hong Kong seafood, banquets and dim sum; and Luk Yue for Cantonese barbecue and roasted rice clay pots. Oh--Dumpling Master for fresh soybeans with potherb and scallion pancakes.
Best overall seafood/dimsum restaurants are Ocean Star (145 N. Atlantic, 2nd Fl.) and NBC Seafood, (404 A S. Atlantic)
