The Low Down


The Extras: In another area? Yang Chow has locations in Chinatown, Pasadena and the San Fernando Valley.

Parking: The restaurant has a small, cheap lot behind it. If that's full, keep in mind that Chinatown parking is unpredictable, so pack some loose change or dollar bills and park in any space that crops up: metered street or adjacent lots.

When to Go: The busiest hours tend to be from noon to 1:30pm and from 6pm to 8pm; try dining during off-peak times for a more relaxed meal.
