Monterey Park is a cozy Asian sanctuary of faded signs written in Mandarin, elderly pedestrians carrying the 626 Ranch Market grocery bags, and overpriced tea shops. Monterey Park is in no way a small town, but it doesn’t have much to its name, considering its suburban makeup. Monterey Park recently placed in the top three of best cities to live in within the United States. Monterey Park has a newly-opened In N Out location.

Monterey Park has thousands of families that have flown in from Hong Kong, Taishan, Hanoi, Manila, Hokkaido, Busan, and other places. Remnants of their traditions, cuisine, music, and language can be found in the well-tailored áo dài tucked safely in the closet, petite hot dog buns and pineapple bread at Diamond Bakery, stacks upon stacks of Mandarin karaoke CDs, and casual conversation with the teller at East West Bank.
