I'll be in Los Angeles in a few weeks, and I'll be searching for the ultimate Chinese cafe with delicious baked goods/sweets, or perhaps even a bakery w/ a storefront devoted to them. I'd also like to find an Indian sweets shop with a large selection of goodies (think gulab jamun, burfi, etc.)
I currently live in Florida, and my last experiences that matched my utopian vision of such places were in Toronto's Chinatown (many years ago) and in the Atlanta suburb of Decatur, which has a large Indian population.
Any recommendations in metro LA that would fulfill this dream would be most appreciated. Thanks in advance!
ps: I'd also like to find a Japanese desserts shop or grocery with a nice selection of sweet mochi cakes.
