home girl cafeMexican food cooked and served by reformed gang members. The green salsa chiliquiles are a favorite, and the regulars swear by "Angela's Potion", a unique lemonade drink mixed with spinach and mint. The cafe is the tastiest part of Father Gregory Boyle's enduring commitment to help kids get out of the gang life, so you can support a good cause as you dip into their roasted pineapple guacamole.

yang chow

For decades one of the city's most popular Chinatown restaurants, Yang Chow serves traditional white table-cloth Chinese food. They're famous for their slippery shrimp. All the standard yet flavorful favorites, such as Szechuan Beef, Moo Shoo chicken and Yang Chow fried rice round out the traditional Chinese fare. Somewhat Americanized compared to the seafood and dim sum palaces of the San Gabriel Valley, Yang Chow is still a great place to begin a night on the Chinatown.
