Apparent Shortage of Hong Kong Cafes in Alhambra

Well based on the mob at Cafe Dodoro with people still waiting for tables a little before 2pm, that seems to be the case. Add the fact that Cafe Dodoro took over space formerly occupied by a bank, so that this isn't merely the case of one Chinese restaurant replacing another, the relatively high prices, and the scathing Internet reviews, and the shortage theory becomes even more plausible. Menu is quite short and mostly pasta, which makes it more of a contender to Savoy (don't get me wrong, I'm not choosing this place over Savoy). I will give them credit for some interesting choices. I never had penne with beef in curry sauce before and don't recall seeing spaghetti with squid ink at a Hong Kong style place before. Parking is a little annoying since, while the restaurant is at 1444 E. Valley, the parking lot cannot be accessed from Valley and you have to enter on New Ave. instead.
