If you want to see L.A.'s real Chinatown, without the tourist embellishments, then Monterey Park and its neighborhoods are the place to go. This is one of the few areas of Los Angeles where I pay no attention to the Health Department's "A", "B" and "C" restaurant ratings. Many of the restaurants have a "B" rating but their food is better and tastes more authentic than at the fancy Chinese restaurants scattered throughout L.A.
While in Monterey Park you can also take a look at the Cascades at Heritage Falls Park at 700 Kingsford Street, just off Atlantic Boulevard and El Encanto, across Atlantic from the Cascades, designed as a development's community center in the late 1920s and now used by the Monterey Park Chamber of Commerce.
