Don't recall 3 new restaurants opening in such proximity, aside from the opening of a brand new shopping center. This is the shopping center on Azusa Ave. anchored by 99 Ranch Market. Northern Cafe actually opened in the spring in a space once occupied by Tea Station. While it features dumplings and pancakes, it also has a fair variety of regular entrees, including griddle cooked bullfrog. Honeymoon Food takes over from what was a string of dessert shops, and features Hong Kong style noodle and rice dishes. Spicy Home takes over from R J Patisserie and serves Sichuan style food. Almost everything in the menu is marked spicy, the major exception being a number of bacon dishes (bacon fried rice, mushroom bacon casserole, bacon with bamboo shoots). The shopping center is on Azusa Ave., immediately south of the Pomona Freeway, where Earthen and Shanghailder Palace remain the main attractions in the center.
