The venerable Har Lam Kee on Garvey in Monterey Park is closing its doors after service tomorrow, Sunday, Feb 2. Apparently the lease is up and the property owner wants to remodel the space to bump up the rent. No plans to reopen after the remodel.
I'll miss their Lo Ban "The Boss'" jook and the dumplings. They had a great run and was one of the few places in Monterey Park that really felt like a caring family ran the place.
My family will be going one last time for the jook, fried tofu, rice noodle rolls, dumpling noodle soup, and to say goodbye to HLK staff. Thanks for the chow-worthy memories.
