I will be in the LA area soon and would like to check out the regional Chinese food.
I have not tried any Chinese food in LA for quite some time so I imagine the selection has gotten much broader recently. I am hoping to find some of the more interesting ethnic group fare if possible as well. Here are the areas I am most interested in sampling--starting from the most desired on down:
Guizhou Province--anything from the Miao, Dong, Shui, Bu yi, or Qing yi ethnic groups(needle in a haystack but you never know). If not available then any highly recommended Guizhou food restaurant. Not so interested in the sour fish soup unless they go the extra step to make both the white and red sour soup themselves.
Yunnan Province--hopefully something from one of the 3 Dai ethnic groups or the Yi ethnic group. If not available then any better general Yunnan restaurant.
Xinjinag Province--preferably Uighur food or at least Hui food.
Chaozhou Region--preferably from Chaozhou City.
Dongbei Region--more toward the Harbin or Dalian styles.
Sichuan--Yibin or Chengdu styles preferred.
Thanks in advance for any advice!
