Zagat's 11 Best Restaurants in Chinatown
Here's my top 11:
1. Pho Broadway
2. J. R. Bistro
3. Fortune Gourmet Kitchen
How is King Taco in Chinatown? IT's south of the 10. And nothing Viet/Cambodian? Geniuses over at Zagat with another stunning triumph of food-writing... Thank god the existence of the internet means those has-beens are in their death throes.
No JR Bistro, Pho Hoa or Buu Dien?
To be fair to Zagat, the answer to your question is probably "yes" ...
And, really, I don't think Zagat was just focusing on Chinese restaurants, but "Best Restaurants" in general.
Excerpt from Zagat's blog intro:
"Even if Chinatown isn't the epicenter for the Chinese community in LA, which has shifted to cities like Alhambra and San Gabriel in the San Gabriel Valley, Chinatown is still a wonderful place to explore for food, art and more. While you can find high-ranking dim sum and Peking duck in the Downtown-adjacent neighborhood, some of the best eats come from a multi-cultural list: according to the 2013 Los Angeles Restaurants guide, Zagat surveyors included tacos, French dips and one cafe that supports high-risk women with chilaquiles and chile relleno grilled cheese. Take a look at the slide show for the 11 spots with the most votes - you may be surprised to see who took the number one slot - and let us know your favorite Chinatown finds in the comments."
