Best Chinese restaurants in the U.S.

And no mention of any in the San Gabriel Valley in the Yahoo Article? It is true that there are 3X as many Chinese restaurants in the US as there are McDonalds. The headache is many of them are not very good. The source, Travel & Leisure has more. I wonder where they got their ratings from? My guess is Zagat. They seem to be going after the nicer restaurants with A+ service, and not focusing as much on the food. My priority is food, price, and service.

They mention Din Tai Fung that has a location in Arcadia - San Gabriel Valley.

Sea Habour in Rosemead I have not been too. It used to be a Farrel's Ice Cream Parlour, and I still feel kinda guilty for accidently pouring chocalate syrup from a birth day party over the person next to me from my Sunday. The waitress told me to hold it with one hand, and that was a bad decision :-)

For Chinese. And my definition of real Chinese is not "Orange Chicken".
