Saveur Magazine's devoted a special issue to Los Angeles not too long ago. This is the blog of the chief photographer of that issue:

Here's an old article on the San Gabriel Valley:

Going All Out for Chinese - Magazine - The Atlantic

Beginning with Monterey Park...the largest concentration of Chinese in the United States lives in middle-class and upper-middle-class suburbia, a twenty-mile swath of unassuming wooden bungalows, 1970s stucco condominiums, and lushly landscaped faux-Spanish developments, shot through with commercial strips and studded with mini-malls. Here is the best Chinese Food in America.

Unlike even the restaurants in New York's and San Francisco's Chinatowns, which are often crowded with tourists on Saturday nights, the hundreds of restaurants here feel no pressure to Americanize.

Here you can encounter tastes that can be found scarcely anywhere else in the Western Hemisphere.

Definitely LA. LA has some of the best ethnic restaurants outside their actual respective countries. Chicago is great, but it is no match for LA.
