In my last visits I've noticed a flurry of activity in the former Golden Cafe at 172 E. Valley in San Gabriel (a short distance past the Hawaii Supermarket). Last night I noticed it was open - Hua Mei Szechuan Palace. Don't hold me to the name, I only caught a brief glimpse passing by. Any reports will be good. I'll be open minded, but they will have to be pretty good to match the existing Szechuan/Sichuan places. Particularly to be on a pace with the two that opened last year (New Chongqing and Shu Feng Yuan).
In other news, Shu Feng Yuan in Focus Plaza now has a cold table. Albeit, only 10 items, but...still.
