Out in Monterey Park for Dim Sum and make my usual stop @ the Wing Hop Fung
to try and bump up my VIP points so that someday, Buddha willing, I'll be able to get
a Chinese calendar or some cool chachke . I wander into the Wine/Liquor section.
I meet Keng, part of the clan that owns the Wing Hop, and we get to talking wine.
He's into it. Still learning, but into it. And, he's put his money where his mouth is.
He's built one of the best wine stores anywhere in town. Sure, WIne House,
L.A. wine co. K & L, Silverlake, Red Carpet, etc. are all well dressed wine and
liquor shops but Wing Hop is committed to bringing interesting, some mainstream
and some not, to the East side. Silverlake wine is great, but if you need a fine
spatlese or some sparkling rose to go with your Chinese food or just about
anything else, I suggest you check out the WIng Hop Fung for wine. Who knew?
