Any Good Restaurants in ALHAMBRA?

My Sister just moved to Alhambra from NY. She drives to Pasadena for outings. I live in Pasadena so I've been showing her around. So far she loves Souplantation, the one by Cost Co, but she's looking for some good places in the area. Like Italian, sushi and Thai places in the area. ANyone know of any good Alhambra spots. I go visit on Sundays and we've been trying out the neighborhood spots, but nothing has stood out so far.

  1. Off the top of my head, I'll recommend Z Sushi.

    Z Sushi
    1132 N Garfield Ave, Alhambra, CA 91801

    1. Toros Sushi
      500 W. Main St.
      (626) 281-6889

      Briganti for Italian (South Pasadena).

      Fosselman's for ice cream (Alhambra).

      1. Good Thai food on Valley:

        Note the Chang Beer is either $2 or $3 (!)

        1. Several come to mind,
          Wahib on Main for Lebanese food
          Shakas off main for Hawaiin
          Boiling Crab on Valley for cheap eat with your hands shrimp and crawfish
          Hop woo on main and garfield
          triumphal palace on Main next to library
          Ba le on valley for Vietnamese sandwichs
          Lee Kum Kee on Valley for vitnamese chinese cuisine
          jus tto name a few

          1. Alhambra, Monterey Park and the SGV is a food mecca. Some of the best Chinese food in the country is that area. A personal favorite Vietnamese place is Nem Nuong Kanh Hoa on Valley Blvd. I went there today and had Bun Bo Hue and Spring Rolls.

            Great grocery shopping at the 99 Ranch Markets in the area as well.
