Chinatown in Los Angeles is way more than a destination for Chinese food and culture. Yes, there are great restaurants serving some of the region's tastiest dim sum (don't worry, we love you too, San Gabriel Valley), but there are also grocery stores that stock those hard-to-find ingredients, things to do year-round, shopping, cultural events and festivals, and an arts scene that's abuzz. Discover the best of Chinatown with the help of our guide the next time you're close to downtown—or when shu mai cravings strike.
