since no one seems to have mentioned it, gerlach’s grill bit the dust this past summer. granted, it had gone downhill since grach sold the place a while back, but still lamentable. gerlachs’ has been replaced by yuca’s formerly of hollywood.
also, baja cali fish & tacos whose alhambra location has been packed on tuesdays because of the $.99 fish taco, is opening a branch on washington a few blocks west of altadena drive. expect long lines on tuesdays if their fish tacos are as good as the ones produced in alhambra. i can finish one in three bites, but it’s not a pretty sight. more dainty eaters might take five bites; that’s how large they are, one piece of crispy breaded fish.
