"Where Have All The Cantonese Restaurants Gone?"

A good read, written by Chandavkl.

I'm currently "living" this, as me n my family seem to notice more and more cantonese spots disappearing and being replaced by non-cantonese restaurants, and having less places to eat as a result.

    you mean having more (Chinese) places to eat as a result. it's the beginning (or end, depending on your view of Chinese shadow banking/debt crisis) of the golden age of Chinese food in LA.

      nah, when I said that, I meant for my parents/family. they tend to stick with cantonese/teochew style restaurants.

        Yeah, I'm the black sheep of the family in that I don't limit myself to HK/Cantonese/Chiu Chow food. Took Mrs. Chandavkl to Chung King when it was the place to go for Sichuan and she still scolds me to this day for doing that.

          I feel your pain. The same thing goes for my family. They usually don't like any cuisine north of the Yangtze river

      2. I wish there were more Cantonese places in SGV, I much prefer Cantonese flavors over Taiwanese
