L.A.’s San Gabriel Valley Has a Thriving Chinese Culinary Scene—Here’s Where to Eat
Hudson Yang, an actor best known for his role on TV’s Fresh Off the Boat, dishes on moving to Tinseltown and discovering that the best Chinese food around isn’t in L.A.’s Chinatown, but in the Valley
Yang grew up eating in the Chinatowns of Flushing, Queens; Sunset Park, Brooklyn; and Manhattan before moving to Los Angeles after getting cast in ABC’s hit sitcom Fresh Off the Boat. It took him a couple of seasons of eating mediocre takeout before he dove into the thriving San Gabriel Valley regional Chinese restaurant scene. “When I finally got there and ate some real Chinese food, I felt like I was home,” Yang says.

Head to this tiny restaurant for the Hainanese chicken rice. It’s super tender and is served with ginger sauce, a garlic sauce, and a slightly spicy chile sauce.
