I need helping putting together an itinerary for a self guided food tour in the San Gabriel Valley. The commercial tours all offer “Dim Sum 101” …. I’m looking for a something a bit more graduate level.
A group of 6 of us want to hit five or six spots in a single day where we can sample a highlight or two and move on to the next place. We are looking for the best range of interesting, authentic, Asian cooking - all ethnicities - which also makes a sense in terms of the least distance and driving time between restaurants.
What would your itinerary be? What dishes would you order? What other places – shops, parks, sites - are interesting to stop and check out along the way?
