I don't know how many local Temple City/Arcadia hounds there are here but some may like to know that there are suddenly more Asian places to eat in the area now and soon to be.
In the last week or so two eateries off Las Tunas Blvd and Temple City Blvd opened up.
First is the Kang Kang Food Court which is a new branch of the Alhambra locations, located 9618 Las Tunas Dr, Temple City, CA 91780.
Just west of Kang Kang by a hundred feet is a new restaurant called "A Golden House". I don't know why they have to add the "A" but then again most Chinese places have ridiculous or nonsensical names.
To the east of both of these newly opened restaurants is the soon to be opened Golden Deli Express. I am very excited about this because this means I have a good fallback place for takeout now. I believe this to be in the same vein of the Golden Deli off of Main in Alhambra.
On Rosemead Blvd we have what use to be the old karaoke/bar whatever it was, finally has a new sign up. "Beijing Duck House", this makes me hope for good things but I'll stay wary for now. If they do anything remotely close to doing roast goose in wood fires that would be a good start. The actual address is: 6420 Rosemead Boulevard, San Gabriel, CA 91775.
I find it strange how all of a sudden the Chinese from our own community finally decided to start new eateries. Maybe it is the recession that is killing much of the nonskilled labor and forcing people to do things they wanted to or never thought about doing.
I should be heading to A Golden House soon to check things out, hopefully its first week opening doesn't mean I have to suffer poor wait times, undercooked foods, and slow service.
