10 Best Eats In Arcadia: Neighborhood Grub Crawl
|Spicy cucumber appetizer|
Young Dong may not have cheap, unlimited barbecue, but it does have some of the best soondubu jjigae in all of Los Angeles. The tofu eclipses the standard level of silkiness -- and there's just the right amount of chili, meat, mushrooms and seafood in each bowl. Meals come in a set: unlimited side dishes, a bubbling tofu pot, a bowl of crispy rice in a clay pot and a protein of your choice (we prefer the BBQ ribs). 1311 S. Baldwin Ave., Ste B., Arcadia; 626-445-0078.
2. Tasty Garden:
Clarissa Wei Filet mignon cubes
Sure the city may have a Denny's, but Tasty Garden is the more popular option when it comes to late-night dining. Part of the Hong Kong diner's appeal is that it's great whether you're looking to appease Western tastes (spaghetti Bolognese, filet mignon cubes) or feeling more inclined towards a traditional Chinese meal (chicken feet, lo mein, frog in a clay pot). And for those with a particular sweet tooth, they make one of the best Hong Kong waffles in the area. 1212 S. Baldwin Ave., Arcadia; 626-445-9388.
