Food Tours

Five Places to Eat in Southern California: San Gabriel Valley Edition

This time of year, conversations at Chow Bella staff meetings tend to turn to who's eaten what and where. With the summer travel season in full swing, we bring you Food Tours, our writers' suggestions of what to eat and drink out of town. California is the land of the plentiful -- plentiful in its offerings of whatever cuisine you might want that day. Hawaiian food? Done. All-you-can-eat Korean barbecue? Done. Don't forget the fish tacos, Ensenada-style, which you wish you could find in the desert. The next time you vacation in Los Angeles, make some time to head northeast to the San Gabriel Valley, a place with enough restaurant choices to leave you searching for days. We've put together a list of our favorites so you don't have to do any of the heavy lifting.
