Built in 1976, the Far East Plaza food mall in Chinatown has become iconic for its mix of old-school and new, creating a buzz among L.A.’s foodie crowd since local chef Roy Choi relocated his first brick-and-mortar there in 2013.

Since then, this unassuming two-story space has become a culinary destination for people from all over. Visitors come for authentic regional Asian bites, restaurant-hop for a taste of everything, or hunker down in line with coffee and ice cream, waiting for service at a trendy pop-up. Communal tables arranged between stands selling knick-knacks serve the many fast-casual options along the corridor. Positioned in the heart of Chinatown, the plaza is worth checking out whether you’re a fan of traditional Asian street food or seeking out the next big food thing.

Parking is easily found at surrounding paid lots; street parking is also available, but hard to come by with busy weekend crowds.
