I've explored a lot of the LA Metro Area and have visited Chinatown many times. Everyone keeps saying though that the REAL Chinatown in LA is to the East in Monterey Park and the surrounding areas. Seeing as how that's a fairly good distance from where I live, covers a pretty large area, and isn't very touristy, I could use some pointers on what the main commercial areas/landmarks are out there, and some of the better restaurants you guys have experienced. If someone is going to daytrip out to see our real Chinese ethnic enclave, what should be on the itinerary? Thanks in advance for your help!
