Pretty much and empty plaza, only one oriental restaurant left and the large food market . This food market has all the oriental products you may want, Too bad the Dim Sum restaurants and Chinese restaurants closed up. They use to be a great place to eat.

COFCO Chinese Cultural Center is a gem in the rough. It had two restaurants, couple of KnickKnack stores, Bakery and a large Ranch 99 Supermarket. I ate a weekday Lunch Special (Hot and Sour Soup, EggRoll and MooGooGai Pan) at the Szechwan Palace for $7. Very good service, food quality/quantity and price.

It is a small garden with a Chinese touch. If the weather is perfect, then spending few hours here would be awesome.
