As I posted earlier in WSGV updates, a restaurant called G V Yummy just opened in Alhambra, replacing New Qingdao Restaurant. Having blasted Yelp ratings of Chinese restaurants in an LA Weekly article a few years back, naturally I don’t post very many Yelp reviews. However, if there are zero Yelp reviews for a restaurant I visit, then I’ll usually post something. This being the case since G V Yummy just opened, I posted a Yelp review this evening. And guess what? If you go this minute to Yelp’s 10 (and more) best Chinese restaurants in and around Alhambra, G V Yummy is at #2!! (Methinks they might want to rethink their algorithms for doing their rankings.)
Incidentally, the restaurant owner did a nice job of uploading pictures of all their menu items onto their Yelp photo page. The restaurant is pricey, but they have a lot of interesting looking dishes, so maybe Yelp is predicting that they will really turn out to be #2.
