If I was lucky, birthday dinners were celebrated at the local Chinese restaurant, The Pagoda in Sutton Cross. Crispy duck pancakes, hot and sour soup, and beef in black bean sauce served on sizzling plates dramatically rushed to the table complete with a lazy Susan before devouring bowls of deep-fried ice cream. And so began a love of Asian food that has endured to this day. Where we live now, in East Los Angeles, we are about 15 minutes from the San Gabriel Valley, home to the largest and best Chinatown in the world. You can explore almost every regional Chinese cuisine in one 20-mile radius and there is no shortage of great dishes to explore. I spend most Saturdays here hunting down a top tip on where to get the best hot pot, dim sum, numbing biang biang mian noodles, fried scallion pancakes or peking duck - It's led to a bit of an obsession!
