NEW YORKER in LA 4 Nites Best Chinese? Mexican?

ToughNewYorker | Dec 13, 2008 05:12 PM

Hi. My partner and I are from NYC. We will be in LA for 4 nights after Christmas. Will be staying in West Hollywood. We really do not know much about LA, we visited once for a few days 15 years ago, which means pre internet and pre GPS. Will have a car. We really wanna hit as much as we can, but I definitely want some real authentic Mexican, not Tex Mex burritos or tacos, real Mexican foood. Then, also Chinese (Hong kong, Cantonese, Sichian, Shanghai etc.) I want to places for lunch or dinner that you know are good because the place should be filled with Mexican patrons or Chinese patrons....not interested in fancy decor, but real food. Also, best place for DIM SUM. I suppose I need at least one recommendation for Chinatown. Also, any other places you guys think would be a MUST EAT AT place...any cuisine...we like it all. Since we will be staying in West Hollywood (The Chamberlain Hotel Westmount Dr near Santa Monica Dr abd La Cieniga.) would appreciate ANY tips eating or otherwise...oh, and budget, for Chinese and Mexican $25 each and under. Would also like to take a native LA-er, my brother in law, out ti dinner, a thank you dinner, so any suggestions? He eats mainly fish and vegs, but we are omnivores. For this restaurant, then $50 each and under since it should be special. Boy, thats a lot of info I am asking for..good Chinese, Good Mexican, Good eats in West Hollywood and a good fancy rest. for a native LAer. And any other must see or dos or eats. Thanks guys...JOHN
