SGV Changes: Man Chan Cuisine, Hot Kitchen, Bambu Desserts & Drinks
Holding Chandavkl's place for him while he's in Europe, here's a WSGV update:
In Prospect Plaza, Ox House is gone, replaced by Man Chan Cuisine - which has a location in Rowland Heights. The space at Valley & New (on the SW corner) which last housed The Grids, has a new tenant: Hot Kitchen is in soft opening. Lastly, Bambu Desserts & Drinks, a chain that seems to be rapidly expanding, has opened on Valley in San Gabriel, 432 E. Valley to be precise.
oo man chan moves to san gabriel, will be interesting to try. One of the few smaller cantonese places expanding.
I went to bambu the other day, some of the drinks are unique. But other than those specific combinations, i didn't see them having any big advantage, other than hype and marketing, over ordering similar drinks at vietnamese restaurants. Still they are crowded whenever I drive by, and a refreshing change from the mediocre boba shops we have all over.
