If you’re looking for a big group spot in Monterey Park where everybody will walk away happy, head to Alice’s Kitchen. This crowded Hong Kong-style cafe has a big front patio, long communal tables inside, and a menu with well over 100 different dishes on it. You could eat here every day for two months and not try everything, so for first-timers, we recommend sticking to the congee, hot pot, and fried noodle sections - and always get a few plates of pineapple buns for the table. Cash only.
