Ding's Garden - gone, replaced by Lucky Noodle King. From items on window, sort of an all encompassing noodle place skewing to "Szechuan", but also Thai, Tomato, etc.
Snack Pop (in Sunny Plaza) - gone, replaced by Open Kitchen. Similar drink menu (no "in the rocks" though), but some difference in snack items, though fairly standard fare. Repainted inside. Kind of Pa Pa Walk-ish now, though in brown and orange.
And, I realize this is vague, but I am 1. tired and 2. recovering from a bad cold, but the HK-fusion place in the back corner of the southern portion of the plaza on Garfield that has Dean Sin World and Giang Nan in the northern portion...the name escapes me (was it L'Amour Cafe, or was that the prior tenant?)...whatever it was, it is gone, replaced by a Thai restaurant, whose name also escapes me in my enveloping haze.
Along Atlantic in Monterey Park, the Atlantic Times Square project has signage up for Tasty Garden, Phoenix and Ten Ren's among others.
Saw a couple of other "new" places, not that I can recall replacing anything of note. Sorry...fatigue and bug make me...not word write well so.
