The stereotypical Chinese architecture was designed by a film set designer to give this area its Eastern flair; a pair of golden dragons grace an arch into the neighborhood, and the gabled roofs and colorful tile on pagoda-style buildings set them apart from the more streamlined buildings of the rest of Los Angeles. The area is high in tourist traffic, but the locals find their treasures in the small specialized grocery stores and bazaars selling toys, clothes and CDs, often owned by Vietnamese vendors. Asian cuisine of all varieties, not just Chinese, can be found here.
