Since "Mandarin Deli" closed both locations (in Chinatown and in Little Tokyo) I feel a huge sadness in chow department. It was my favorite comfort food. What places would you, chowhounds, recommend? Is there still a "Mandarin Deli" in Monterey Park - it was mentioned on the same business card and was under same management (ownership)? I live in Hollywood and don't want to drive to Earthen in Hacienda Heights which was highly praised by Jonathan Gold in the latest LA Weekly issue.
