I am looking for any type: noodle houses, dumpling houses (I know Din Tai Fon has gotten a bad rap here, but Mei Long Village has gotten some thumbs up), dim sum, whatever in Monterey Park or Hacienda Heights (as a side question, is there a consensus on whether HH is almost or just as good as MP?). And, of course, I mean authentic and GOOD. Stuff I can't get in Irvine. My SO's parents are from Taiwan (and my SO knows good Chinese food). Unfortunately, they'd moved back there so I don't know if there recommendations are up to speed. It's quite a drive for me from Irvine, so if I could get some suggestions as to where to go, I would be most thankful!
