Pasta Joe's, what I would refer to as a Chinese spaghetti house, has opened on Gale Ave. How do I know it's Chinese? Well, the exterior signage is bilingual, the menu is bilingual, the cooks are Chinese (though more of the hipster ilk) and the patrons are all Chinese. They actually have only a few pasta varieties--spaghetti, shells and penne on the menu, plus linguine on the blackboard, though several choices from each one, along with a few other dishes you would find at an Italian restaurant. Address is 18222A E. Gale Ave., in the same shopping center as Asia Buffet.
Meanwhile in nearby Rowland Heights it looks like a second food court, the one in Pacific Plaza on Colima Road, may be going down for the count. Tea Eggs and Classy Cafe have both closed, leaving only two eateries still open--a Shanghai place and the long running Four Seasons Steak House.
