Never been to LA, but what food options would you think LA has that NYC doesn't? Just curious.

It's funny, because a few people I know who have gone out to CA come back and say it was great except that the food isn't that good.

One delicacy that comes to mind immediately is tri tip. I really can't locate this (at least good anyway) outside of the Central Coast and L.A.

Los Angeles has better burgers and tacos than New York but we got everything else hands down.

Interesting, thanks. Never heard of it.

Then again, I'm from New Jersey, and I bet you never had a Taylor ham, egg, and cheese sandwich.

Don't know how to post so that the picture shows up without clicking on the link.

No, San Francisco and Los Angeles has better Chinese food.

I don't know. What would make one Chinatown's food better than another's, as long as it's authentic? New York City's Chinatown is the largest in the country, and a significant Chinese immigrant community has more recently established itself in the NYC borough of Queens.

If you go to the places where the Chinese themselves eat--and I've been in such a place in Queens where my companion and I were the only white people in the place--location of the city isn't going to make much difference.

No, actually I lived in NJ most of my life. I have had Taylor Ham and cheese many, many times, and how I do miss them. I used to eat at White Rose in Linden all the time when I worked in Union a long time ago.

I would call that one closer to a push.


When one considers Chinese in relationship to how it is prepared in China, you would have to say that American Chinese is almost its own creation. For instance someone once told me that you can't locate Chop Suey in China, it's a twist on a recipe that Chinese immigrants brought overseas, and the origins cannot be detected. I look at Chinese food as being more of an overarching American food than almost any other cuisine, though where I live now there are really no decent Chinese restaurants to be found. However, living in St. Louis, in the middle of the country, I found awesome Chinese food. It's everywhere, really.
