Grand Opening At Gourmet Island in Alhambra

Chandavkl | Sep 15, 2011 04:45 PM

The huge banner outside of Gourmet Island says "Grand Opening" but as we know, Gourmet Island has been open a couple of years. So what this means is a change of ownership and operation, as evidenced by a change in the Chinese name of the restaurant. The new Gourmet Island has a conventional Hong Kong/Cantonese lunch and dinner menu in line with predecessors at that location including Jumbo and The Kitchen. Gone is the breakfast menu (they're not even open for breakfast), the cafe items, and the dishes that Jonathon Gold raved about. My lunch dish was OK but nothing noteworthy. Gourmet Island is at 203 W. Valley Blvd.
