The timing of the front page post on David Chan
could not have been better, as I will be traveling to Los Angeles for the first time this July.
However, my only experience with Chinese food has been of the Americanized variety, which I am somewhat hesitant to admit I enjoy immensely.
What dishes would constitute the best options for someone like myself, who is looking for a "gentle introduction" to authentic Chinese?
Incidentally, if you have any additional advice on the Chinese dining scene in LA, I would love to hear it.
