Papparich Opens Next Monday, Poké Madness Lands in Alhambra, More from SGV

Pho Next Generation jumps on the 2008 filet mignon late train

And now, a semi-regular update from San Gabriel Valley's vibrant restaurant scene:

1) Monterey Park: Papparich has announced grand opening date of August 10. The new Papparich is completely unrelated to the Koreatown Papparich which shuttered earlier in 2015. After a lengthy build-out, the Malaysian chain promises more authentic flavors at its "first USA branch" but makes no reference to the old K-town franchisee. 500 N, Atlantic Blvd, 116

Pho Next Generation, Monterey Park

2) Monterey Park: Hoy Ka has been flipped into Pho Next Generation. The house speciality here is the filet mignon pho, first made popular by Pho Filet in 2008. 230 N Garfield Ave

3) Alhambra: It only took John Park 5 days to flip Ice Que into Poke Stuf. The new poké shop marks the arrival of 2015's hottest food trend in the SGV. The switcheroo oddly parallels Eric Park turning Black Hogg's into Ohana Poké. 401 W. Main St

Visual, San Gabriel

3) San Gabriel: Visual, the only club in West San Gabriel, has opened in the old Area DNA space after a thorough gutting. The front restaurant area has completely vanished. 250 W Valley Blvd

5) Rosemead: Sweet Heart Dessert House recently replaced I-10 Meeting Tea. The new dessert shop features Cantonese sweets (mango tofu flower, sago, black sesame soup), and other Hong Kong street snacks (gai dan zai, spicy snails, etc.) 8522 E Valley Blvd Unit 106
