Another strong addition along the theme of upping the ante on our local Asian food scene.
The latest incarnation of Papparich opened recently at Atlantic Square in Monterey Park. Decor is tasteful and relatively “upscale”, refreshing change from the typical tacky decor in stateside Malaysian restaurants.
The menu is fairly diverse and well represented by familiar favorites. Based on the few items I tried, flavors were on point. Only complaints curry noodles were too greasy - too much oil left in the soup, sago dessert was way too sweet.
While far from perfect, I think this might be the strongest Malaysian restaurant to grace our city yet.
