If driving your affordable new Mazda around Long Beach has you thinking about getting a bite to eat, might we suggest Dim Sum? These savory dumplings, often paired with other dishes and served family style, are a favorite in Chinese restaurants from Manhattan Beach to Palos Verdes, but the best bites by far can be found in and around Chinatown, in Los Angeles.


Unlike many Dim Sum houses in the city, Lunasia serves these tasty small plates all day long. You can choose from the more traditional pork and seafood-filled dumplings or opt for a more modern taste and try the Siu-Mai with truffles.

Location: 500 W. Main St. Alhambra, CA

Hours: Monday – Friday, 11:00 AM – 10:00 PM; Saturday – Sunday, 10:00 AM – 10:00 PM

Golden Dragon

Fish cakes, juicy spareribs, shrimp balls and, of course, Har Gow, make the Golden Dragon one of the most popular stops in Chinatown. Their no-frills approach and focus on good food in large quantities makes them well worth the drive in from Long Beach, even if you have to handle L.A. traffic to get here.
