I've only recently become acquainted with real Chinese food, but the San Gabriel Valley has opened my eyes and set my sights high. I'm looking to find restaurants serving regional cuisines other than the ones I've tried. For instance, I am not familiar with Shandong or Taiwanese.
Here are the restaurants I've been to so far in SGV, mostly Chowhound or Jonathan Gold picks. (I've also eaten a lot of Cantonese previously.) What SGV restaurants should I try next?
Green Village. Shanghainese (or so I have read). Absolutely great.
Chung King and Yunnan Garden. Szechuan. Both very good.
Dong Ting Chun. Hunan (or so I have read). Good.
Dumpling Master. North Chinese? OK.
China Islamic. Uighur??? Blah, not my thing.
