Chung King Restaurant in Monterey Park
If you like Sichuan food, you should do yourself a favor and go to Chung King Restaurant in Monterey Park. It's on Garfield between Garvey and Newmark (south of Garvey on the left side). this place just opened and I would say they have the most authentic and flavorful Sichuan food in LA, correct me if I'm wrong. The prices, too, are outstanding. There's no lunch menu, but the dinner menu prices are cheap. They have a lot of really different dishes that you won't see at most places and it's all in decently translated English. For me this place is like the holy grail of Chinese food, the restaurant I have always been looking for but didn't know existed. I'll leave it to someone else to actually review the dishes and everything. Just go there and try it for yourself.
