Well I guess the preliminary question is has anybody been to San Gabriel Village? I've driven up and down Del Mar Bl. north of Valley dozens, if not hundreds of times, and noticed that where Del Mar crosses Fairview Ave. in the middle of a residential area, there is a large, probably pre-WW II sign pointing to San Gabriel Village. I don't know why I never investigated this, or for that matter, why all of a sudden I decided to do so. Driving a couple of blocks on this residential street, I came to a commercial area like Larchmont Village, except it's just a block long. One of the stores is Chao Bakery House, but it was closed today even though their apparent hours are 8am to 5pm. There was one worker inside in back. There's a bunch of paper signs in the window, but they're mostly in Chinese, though there's something in English about $1 drinks. Any intelligence would be appreciated. No Yelp reviews. Chao Bakery House is at 250 W. Fairview Ave.
