where to go in Monrovia for dinner?

Going to dinner with a friend tonight, any suggestions? I've heard weird things about Devons decor/vibe...Sketchy accounts re. Mundial.

  1. There's always Canadian Cafe... and if you want to have Asian food, SinBaLa in Arcadia is very tasty.

      Canadian Cafe recently closed its doors.

        That's a bummer. I guess my thrice yearly visits there when I'm getting my car serviced weren't enough...

    2. In Monrovia, I've always enjoyed Wang's Palace. It's more of an Americanized Chinese restaurant than anything else, but the food is always good as is the service. A link to the restaurant is below:

        Does anyone know if Wang's Palace has closed it's doors? I tried calling their 3 numbers from their website and all have been disconnected. Just wondering if anyone knew! That would suck, I love that Place!

        Wang's Palace
        423 S Myrtle Ave, Monrovia, CA 91016

          Drove by Wang's earlier today and saw signs for Los Guerros in their windows...Hope Wang's hasn't closed. Love their Yangchow fried rice.

            FYI - Wang's is about to open it's doors at their new location...around the corner from their old place on Lemon just east of Myrtle.

      2. Here is a recent thread discussing Wang's Palace.

        If you like red sauce Italian, you might want to go to Domenico's, here is a report from a few years ago:

        1. Rudy's - best Mexican in town. I think Devon is overrated.

          1. I would venture to Arcadia, and it would depend what kind of food you want. But, I don't know of any superb restaurants in Monrovia.

            However, I have heard of some French place that has no or low corkage fee with decent food and good prices in Monrovia. Does anyone know the name/address of this place?

              I believe its called La Parisienne (sp?) its on Huntington, almost at the corner of buena vista

              1. re: ragazza

                That's actually in Duarte. After descending further and further into expensive dreariness, it got a new owner who reportedly turned it around...but now I've heard it's changed again. Haven't been by lately - does anyone know?

                1. re: Will Owen

                  As I posted here, La Parisienne is (1) not in Duarte, but rather Monrovia, and (2) now called "3Cs."
