Wiki G. gave some love San Gabriel Valley:

This is the real Chinatown rich Every Authentic Chinese Food You Want. We have the old and famous Japanese American family business San Gabriel Nursery, the Grapevine Arbor and Mission Playhouse with beautiful Spanish architecture and the brand new Blossom Market Hall… offering everything from Korean dumplings to artisan ice cream.

Gabe S. shout loudly north hollywoodand what you’ll find if you look at all the past studios.

“I grew up here. Many businesses are centered around supporting a studio work culture, but restaurants have been around for a long time. When I think of my childhood, I think of Andre’s gumbo Friday at Uncle Andre’s Soul Food. My family reunion at Art’s Deli. School activities at Carney’s Hot Dogs. The first Menchies Frozen Yogurt appeared unexpectedly when opening. Sushi Don’s Mall Chirashi Bowl. “

for Patrick V., it’s all about Fairfax – its convenience, its history and its fashion. He wrote:

As a resident of Fairfax for 18 years, I’ve seen it change a lot. I love that it retains a unique historic culture even though the latest trends in retail and food make it a destination for many tourists. … I brag to all my friends that I’m in the best position because I can go almost anywhere, but I’m also in the center of LA, so it’s not too far east, west, or valley. “
