Boba8 Brings Boozy Balls; Nha Trang Building Empire

Welcome to Meanwhile, In SGV a regular feature in which TC, our fearless leader in all things San Gabriel Valley, brings word of restaurant openings, closings, and other unsung, curious neighborhood goings on.


1) San Gabriel: Boba7, Elton Keung's boba drink pop-up in residence at Soi7, has literally increased by one. Boba8 is the new collaborative Asian alcohol program situated at R2 Kazoku, which launched about a year ago. The pop-up will run Thursday to Sunday, 5 to 11 p.m.

2) Industry: The steaming lamb hot pockets of Beijing Pie House have marched east. Branch two of Beijing Pie House has opened in the old space of Michelle's Pancakes. The menu reads similarly to the one over which Mr. Gold gushed. 18558 E Gale Ave. #272


3) Alhambra: Gui Lin Noodle, which obviously serves noodles from Gui Lin city, has expanded again. The Guangxi province inspired restaurant now features a woodsy-looking deli counter, which is not an eyesore as at previous Gui Liin Noodles locations. 261 E Valley Blvd.

4) San Gabriel: Despite recently picking its paces, New Chong Qing, which has been around since 2009, has been sold to Nha Trang. This will be the fourth Nha Trang branch. 120 N. San Gabriel Blvd.
