Awesome Eatery Opens In Monterey Park (And I'm Not Referring to Fortune Dumplings)

No, this is not an ecstatic review of a new restaurant but rather notice that Awesome Eatery is the name of a new restaurant that has just opened up in Monterey Park. Ironically both Awesome Eatery and Fortune Dumpling have opened up while TonyC is cavorting in Chicago, as he had previously pegged these as coming attractions in his Eater LA column. Awesome Eatery is the fifth restaurant occupant at 501 W. Garvey Ave., #101 in five years, and serves, well, how do you categorize a restaurant that serves Tianjin buns, stinky tofu, three cups squid, Hunan tofu, fish dumplings, herbal lamb stew and sea and land snails with basil? The largest menu categories are labeled "Northern", so that's probably the best classification. They're offering a 20 percent discount during their grand opening period, so hurry on down!
