Gina’s Pizzeria serves up delicious Italian cuisine

By Bryce Ronquillo

Since 1984, Gina’s Pizzeria, located in Montebello, has prided itself on using only the freshest ingredients and family recipes to serve Italian favorites at an affordable price.

Gina’s is notorious for its big pizza servings. Ranging from prices of $16.05 to $23.50, depending on a person’s choice of toppings, is the giant pizza size. The pizza is so big that the crust sticks out of the delivery box. It is perfect for large gatherings of people or even a family meal.

A single giant pizza slice is also available for $2.25. The giant pizza slice makes for a great lunch meal. The cheese to sauce ratio is close to even. The pepperoni’s are very flavorful and slices are not too greasy.

Gina’s is not only about the size of the food, but the quality of it as well. The tomato sauce in the pizza is bursting with flavor. It is evident that the ingredients are fresh.

The BBQ chicken pizza is a favorite at Gina’s. It is made with BBQ sauce instead of classic tomato sauce and topped with cheese, chicken, onions and cilantro. A large for the price of $23.49, is big enough for four people to share and be satisfied.

Although it was heavy on the onions and cilantro, the sauce and the chicken have a lot of flavor.

The other dishes on the menu do not disappoint. There are six different pastas as well as 10 types of sandwiches, both hot and cold. Salads and appetizers are offered as well.

The fettucini alfredo is very creamy and full of flavor. A plate is available for $7.50, and chicken can be added for $2.50 extra.

The submarine is a refreshing lunch sandwich to enjoy on a hot day. The combination of meats such as turkey, salami and pepperonis with the lettuce and tomatoes keeps one wanting more. There is also mozzarella cheese and pepperoncinis in this sandwich.

A small eight-inch sandwich is available for $5.50 and a large 12-inch is available for $6.50.

For those who crave hot sandwiches the meatball is a good option. On an Italian roll slices of homemade meatballs and tomato sauce are placed, topped with with cheese. The meatballs are very flavorful as well the sauce. An eight-inch is available for $5.75 and a 12-inch is $6:75.

Upon request, Gina’s also constructs heart-shaped pizzas.

It is not a very big restaurant and the parking is limited to the street. Gina’s does deliver to make up for the lack of parking on a busy street.

Since the restaurant is family owned there is a very welcoming vibe from the staff. The owner is hands-on working the cash register, delivering the pizza’s himself, even jumping in the kitchen when he needs to.

The restaurant’s location is 3017 West Beverly Boulevard in Montebello. This location is very close to East Los Angeles College.

Gina’s is open everyday but Mondays for lunch and dinner. Store hours are 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Tuesday-Thursday, 11 a.m.-10 p.m. on Friday, noon-10 p.m. on Saturday and noon-9 p.m. on Sunday.

Tea Barrel offers affordable treats

By Jane Fernandez

There are many tea places students can go hang out at, but there are not many boba tea bars like Tea Barrel. As the name describes it, tea barrel is a small family-owned restaurant that will make customers feel like they are inside of a pirates’ ship.

The small space is decorated with tables that resemble barrels and the walls are also wooden. The lights are dimmed for a relaxing feel but are still bright enough to sit and read a book. Although there are not many decorations, the ambient of tea barrel is just right.

During weekdays, students stop by to drinking flavored boba milk tea, study or play cards with their friends. Tea Barrel serves a wide variety of milk teas, flavored teas, slushies, smoothies, dishes and appetizers.

Its unique menu choices are different than any other boba house. Their sweet plum potato fries at just $4.28 an order are very different from traditional French fries. The sweet plum fries although sprinkled with sour plum seasoning, have a sweet and salty taste perfect to go along with a cold milk tea.

Takoyaki, which are Japanese-style squid balls, are a great snack at just $4.60. An order comes with eight balls for sharing.

For those with a sweet tooth, Tea Barrel offers sweet toast for just $3.68. There are only four choices for toast, but they are all mouth-watering. The condensed milk toast melts in the mouth with every bite and will keep anyone wanting more.

The selection of dishes, although not very large, are quite distinct and delicious. The popcorn chicken rice at $7.99 makes a perfect meal for those who want to eat for less than $10, as the dish comes with a free green or black tea.

Aside from the food, Tea Barrel is known for its drinks. The drink menu is different in that it offers flavors that are not well known. Flavors like guava, plum, peach rose and barley attract the eye and curiosity of the customers.

Most of the flavor teas and milk teas offer a choice between green, black or oolong tea.

The honey boba is soft and squishy, just right for a delicious drink.

The friendliness of the staff creates a very welcoming environment for anyone. Even though they offer low prices, they make sure their customers are saving.

Tea Barrel is perfect for those who want to spend some quiet time while sipping on their favorite flavored milk tea, or with a group of friends who want to take their own card game or borrow one from the restaurant as they have a few table games and a rack of magazines.

The owners of the Tea Barrel try to save their customers money by offerings discounts. Customers receive 20 percent discount if they like Tea Barrel on Yelp and a 10 percent discount on Facebook. Apart from the online deals, every cup sleeve is a 10 percent discount toward the next drink purchase.

For smokers, there is an outside balcony that is smoke friendly.

Cleanliness is not a problem, as the staff keeps the small place tidy and spotless clean.

Tea Barrel is cash only and parking is available in the back. The location is 405 West Main Street in Alhambra.

Doomie’s takes vegan approach to fast-food

By Megan G. Razzetti

Doomie’s Home Cookin gives a true comfort food experience through classic vegan recipes.

Located in Hollywood, this restaurant gives a unique blend of vegan and vegetarian options that anyone would enjoy.

The menu includes anything from traditional cheeseburgers to seafood dishes, giving even the pickiest of eaters a chance to order something delicious, free of any animal products.

Vegan food refrains from using any animal products, not just meat but also dairy and eggs.

Most of the meat-like dishes such as The Western burger are soy-based and loaded with savory flavors that mix together with a sweet barbeque sauce, vegan bacon and a choice of vegan cheese or regular cheese.

Pair that burger with a side of chili-cheese fries that are crafted with fresh homemade french fries smothered in chili beans. The chili is mild, packed with spice and topped with a generous amount of cheese.

A customer off-the-menu favorite is Doomie’s version of a Big Mac, which seems to be much larger and filled with more toppings than the average Big Mac served at McDonalds.

The two hamburger patties are stacked on top of each other and drenched in thousand island sauce, chopped onions, lettuce and pickles.

The fried avocado is a must have. Slices of avocado are fried in a lightly seasoned batter in vegetable oil that results in a delectable dish. It is not too greasy. The avocado compliments the fried casing well.

Dessert options include deep-fried Oreos and freshly-baked cookies that are made when ordered.

This restaurant is great for vegan and vegetarians who want that comfort food experience. Those who are unfamiliar with vegan food and are curious to trying a new approach to classic recipes may enjoy it.

Doomie’s also provides customers with a gluten-free menu, for people who have gluten restrictions and allergies.

The restaurant is located at 1253 Vine Street in Hollywood.

The parking is valet only, but there is also limited street parking.

MIGHTY DUCK—Smoked duck marinated in garlic and chili peppers is served at Szechuan Impression for $18.99. CN/CORTEZ CRUZ SERRATO

By Cortez Cruz Serrato

Located in the city of Alhambra, Szechuan Impression serves up Chinese cuisine that firmly separates itself from other restaurants in the area.

Szechuan food is a style of Chinese cuisine that comes from the province of Sichuan in China.

Szechuan cuisine is known for using an abundant amount of garlic, spices and chili peppers.

The restaurant opened in September and has generated a lot of buzz from many in the community.

The affordable prices and wide variety are what separates Szechuan Impression from other Chinese restaurants in the San Gabriel Valley.

Szechuan Impression serves up delicious chicken and beef plates, rabbit, lamb, duck, and eve frog for those who are interested in trying something a little different than what they are used to.

Customers are instantly welcomed when entering Schezuan Impression.

The wait staff takes no time in greeting customers and is willing to answer any questions that they may have.

The menu is very helpful in letting customers know how spicy each dish is by putting images of chili peppers next to each specified dish.

Appetizers range from dishes that most customers are familiar with, like dumplings and fried rice, to bean jelly and starch noodles with pork intestines.

The staff was persistent in saying that their teas and plum juice were not only refreshing but authentic to the beverages served in southwestern China.

The plum drink is refreshing and freshly juiced throughout the day with very little sugar added.

The large selection of entrees and appetizers makes it difficult to choose what to order, but the servers’ suggestion is usually to go with the duck and fish fillets in chili sauce.

The duck is smoked multiple hours, which makes the meat tender and moist.

The smoking technique and the fattiness of the duck makes the entree succulent and delicious.

The fish fillets in chili sauce is for those who enjoy the extra kick of spice.

The fish fillets are boiled until tender, but the chili sauce is what makes the dish worth ordering.

The sauce is packed with intense flavors of garlic and chilies, which will leave some customers wiping their noses throughout the meal.

Though the dish has a fair amount of spiciness, it is not so overwhelming that the customer is unable to taste the other flavors in the dish.

Customers can also order a side of white rice or one of their several fried rices.

Szechuan Impression serves healthy portions that will leave all appetites satisfied.

The restaurant offers both lunch and dinner service.

Lunch service is from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. and dinner service is from 5 p.m. until 10:30 p.m.

Due to Szechuan Impression being a fairly new and quickly popular restaurant, the wait can become long.

The wait for a table can be an hour during the dinner service on weekdays and well over an hour on weekends.

Szechan Impression is located at 1900 West Valley Blvd. in Alhambra.

By Jade Inglada

Hidden at the end of a small shopping center stands Rancho Grande, a family-owned Mexican restaurant that’s been serving its community since the early 1970s.

Upon entering the restaurant, the entire menu, as well as photos of some of its popular dishes, are posted on the left wall.

Rancho Grande has a variety of options available on its menu from burritos and tacos, to heaping portions of carnitas or barbacoa.

The “Original” Louie Special, named after the founder, is what the restaurant is known for.

This dish is a burrito filled with red and green chiles, rice and beans, and covered with enchilada sauce, cheese, sour cream and guacamole.

The mix of tender pork and beef stands out from dishes at other Mexican eateries and makes for a hearty meal alone.

It’s an ideal choice for people who want something different, and, for $6.95, it’s not hard to understand why it’s a favorite.

The carne asada combo plate comes with marinated steak, beans, rice, guacamole and pico de gallo. Customers have the choice of flour or corn tortillas that come with the meal wrapped in foil to keep warm.

The carne asada has a light lemon and charred grill taste that isn’t overpowering.

The beans sprinkled with cheese are full of rich flavor, and the rice is seasoned well enough to avoid being bland.

While the pico de gallo and guacamole may be heavy on the onion, everything is made fresh and creates a variety of flavor combinations.

As the most expensive item on the menu for $9.25, customers will definitely get their money’s worth.

What keeps customers loyal to this 40-year-old establishment are the low prices and courteous staff. Everything on the menu is below $10, making any meal affordable no matter what time of day.

The staff is polite, offering to get drink refills or address any questions or concerns customers may have.

If customers choose to dine inside or use the outdoor seating, one of the wait staff will serve chips and salsa while the food is being prepared.

The overall environment is casual with two televisions at opposite corners of the interior and with simple decorations. The restaurant also offers breakfast all day, a kid’s menu and a special that changes each month.

Rancho Grande is located at 10935 East Rosecrans Avenue, Norwalk. It’s open Sunday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and closed on Wednesdays.

Greek grill offers less than extraordinary dishes

By Amanda Rodarte

Less than a twenty minute drive from East Los Angeles College, and located at one of the latest sites in downtown Los Angeles; George’s Greek Grill offers “fast, fresh, food” at a decent price.

The restaurant is located at the newest shopping center in downtown.

Located at the first level of the shopping center, George’s Grill creates a very fresh and clean feel environment with its impeccably clean space, and bright white décor, offers a very hip vibe.

From authentic mediterranean food to an unconventional twist to hamburgers, George’s Greek Grill has a large variety that can please everyone.

George’s Greek Grill  offers  many appetizers from salads to French fries.

But if you want something out of the ordinary, their dolmathes are delicious. Pronounced as (dohl-MAH-thes) ,  are made of grape leaves along with tomatoes and spices.

Customers have the choice between non-vegetarian dolmas with are made with Angus ground meat or the veggie alternative has rice.

Dolmas have an unique indescribable taste at $5.99 for 4. Probably one of the best items of the menu.

The Lemon Chicken wrap was good, but caused a bit of a mess because of its thick sauce.

It had a nice citrus grilled taste, the pita bread was delicious. The meal also offers the options of fries, rice, brown rice, or salad as sides.

Unfortunately, it was nothing extraordinary.

For a more of the Greek taste, the gyro (euro) which is shaved beef/lamb meat is highly recommended.

The plate may seem pricey at $12, but it’s a decent amount of food.

Entrees also come with rice or fries, salad, and a decent sized wrap.

Aside from a wide range of appetizers and entrees,customers are immediately greeted with a large variety of specialty drinks upon entrance.

People may choose from imported Mexican sodas, a wide range of iced tea, bottled water, and regular fountain drinks in the front.

Along with the range of drinks, the grill offers two of their newest drinks: cucumber limeade and watermelon cooler.

These two drinks are exclusively made each day by the workers, and guarantee complete freshness.

The cucumber limeade was refreshing making it perfect for the upcoming summer season. It had the right amount of lime and cucumber which gave it a very cool flavor.

In the other hand, the watermelon cooler was not as satisfying.

The first time purchasing watermelon cooler, is came with a promising taste and the natural texture to it. With all the watermelon pulp it had, it had a homemade taste to it.

The second time however was unsuccessful. The drink has a twist that almost went unnoticed the first time, but overwhelmingly strong the second.

Instead of using regular water as the base, rose water is used to give it an unusual taste.

It may sound like a “pretty” idea at first, if it’s not overdone. Buyer Beware.

The drinks range from $1.89- $3.00.

Mondays – Saturdays are the busiest days of the week since it is located at the heart of downtown. Sundays are their least busy.

George’s Greek Grill is located on Fig at 7th, 735 South Figueroa Street, Suite 131, Los Angeles. It opens Monday – Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., and Saturday – Sunday from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.

The Sandwich Smith sells overpriced simplicity


RED, WHITE & BLUE— The Sandwich Smith’s specialty sandwich, the Red, White & Blue, consisting of primed Angus steak, garlic aioli, bleu cheese, red onion, tomato and lettuce ready to be served. CN/YESENIA MARTINEZ

By Mannie Miguel

Despite the freshness and simplicity of their sandwiches, The Sandwich Smith does not give the customer the “bang for their buck” with their overpriced sandwiches.

About 6.5 Miles from East Los Angeles College, it sits in the heart of Little Tokyo and is a place that diners can grab a nice, simple sandwich with the freshest ingredients.

Upon entry, diners will notice vast amounts of natural lighting that fills the dining room. Their grey and white color scheme makes the establishment contemporary, yet gives it a cozy home-like feeling to it. The Sandwich Smith also offers free Wi-Fi to their customers, but not many outlets are availble.

The restaurant has plenty of seating available, including tables outside its dining area where customers can enjoy the scenery.

An application-like menu is available upon entrance to the eatery where customers have the option to order a custom built sandwich or salad or choose from a list of 13 specialty sandwiches. The menu allows customers to choose from a variety of meats, breads, dressings, cheeses and toppings.

The menu can be a bit confusing for some customers who may not have experience ordering on these types of menus.

Customer can also order their sandwiches grilled. There is an additional charge of $1 to add fried eggs, boiled eggs, grilled onions or roasted onions to any sandwich, and a $1.50 for Bacon, and $2 for avocado.

Sandwiches start from $6.95 for a plain grilled cheese to $12.95 for a lamb shoulder sandwich. Salads costs $10.95 each. Their specialty sandwiches also run from $7.95 to $10.95.

Customers also have the choice to upgrade their sandwich to a meal for $3.50, which includes a drink and a choice of either macaroni or spinach salad or broccoli slaw.

Although their sandwiches are good, customers do not get the best deal for their money.

Their sandwiches are too simple and it seems that anyone can make them. Given that a meal starts at $13 per person, customers would expect to eat something better.

The Red, White & Blue sandwich is overpriced for the overall tastiness of the sandwich. This sandwich consists of a French roll with primed Angus steak, garlic aioli, blue cheese, red onion, tomato and lettuce.

The tastes of the vegetables are fresh, right of the field, and the meat was tender and juicy. The plain taste of the bread made the sandwich feel like it could be done at home.

The custom sandwich was not as good as the Red, White & Blue special. It consisted of buttermilk-fried chicken with cheddar cheese, cucumber, spinach, tomato and avocado on country white bread.

The chicken was excellent, and like the other sandwiches, the vegetables were also fresh and tasty. Yet, the bread on this sandwich felt like it came from the bargain store.

It seems that the Sandwich Smith is an expert on their meats, rather than delivering great sandwiches.

The bill for two sandwiches was $27.99, which included an upgrade on one sandwich that came with lemonade and a serving of macaroni with spinach. ELAC students get a 10 percent discount.

The  Sandwich Smith has happy hour Mondays through Fridays from 5p.m. to 7p.m. with $1.75 oysters, $3 draft craft beers, and $5 House Wines.

The Sandwich Smith is a place to try once for the experience, but not a place that is highly recommended. The Sandwich Smith is located at 362 E. 1st Street, Los Angeles.

By Max Perez


Armando’s Mexican Restaurant is a great place to eat Mexican cuisine. It is traditional Mexican food made at its finest.

The restaurant holds a maximum capacity of about 35 to 40 people. There are two entrances designated on the side and front of the restaurant.

On weekends they have homemade tortillas and pozole. Their breakfast deals are amazing. For only $5 a meal includes your choices of bacon, sausage, or ham, eggs, beans and cheese, and rice is provided.

It is an ideal place to go if you are a fan of breakfast and sleeping in. They serve breakfast in the after noon.  Every day they make their food fresh.

Before the meal, chips and mild salsa are brought to the table by one of the waitresses. If seafood is your preference, Armando’s is definitely a place to visit.

Their meats are always cooked tender so every bite is enjoyed. The eggs are made whatever style asked for. The actual breakfast is delicious.

The bacon and eggs is a dish to go for. The strips are always made to  perfection so when you take a bite it does not have a hard crunch. It is not soggy or undercooked either.

The eggs were tasty but a good suggestion would be to stay away from the sunny side up because they usually make too much of a mess.

The ceviche is tasty and has a zesty kick to it. When it is mixed with tostadas, the combination is tough to find elsewhere. The ceviche comes in good portion  size and their shrimp cocktail will leave you wanting more.

If in need of an extra kick, red and  green salsa can be add for a spicy taste.

Armando’s is also a place to have a few drinks if you are of age. They have $9 pitchers of beer and a good selection of Mexican beer. They have the football games showing during the fall and also have happy hour.

Armando’s Mexican Restaurant is a great place to go eat if you need your fix of Mexican food. The food is always great and the service is even better.

One thing that might take away from all the positives of this restaurant is that it gets crowded because of its popularity. This makes the grade for Armando’s an overall 4 out of 5 stars.

Armando’s Mexican Restaurant is a quaint little place located at 704 E. Garvey Avenue in Monterey Park.  They do phone in orders for anybody on the go. Their hours are Monday-Thursday 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., Friday and Saturday 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sundays from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Japanese restaurant gets an “A” for food

By Max Perez


The food will grab your attention more than the intimate setting that is the first thing noticed from the second customers arrive at the Open Door Japanese Izakaya restaurant.

Upon entering the restaurant, traditional Japanese art is the first thing that catches the eye. A large wall painting covers one entire side. It depicts a traditional Japanese setting in a restaurant where men are sitting with women enjoying their food and sake.

All the tables in the restaurant seem to be placed only two feet away from each other, making personal space a bit unfamiliar. The service made up for it as each waitress readily awaits customer requests.

The menu offers a tip for customers on portion sizes for small dishes and that they should be enjoyed with beer or sake. Large portions are available. The selection of food includes mainly Japanese appetizers and main course meals.

Prices range from $3 to $14 for food and $3 to $25 for alcoholic beverages, which includes a list about the same length as the food.

One of their recommended dishes is the “Beef Tataki” at $13.50, which is thinly sliced rare beef tenderloin seared in ponzu sauce. The Beef Tataki was tender and easy to eat.

The ponzu sauce adds enough kick to the tenderloin to make it unique from other dishes. The price does seem a bit high for the size though.

Another familiar order was the “Truffle Tater Tots” at $4.75, which was great. It comes with ketchup and sour cream dip if you are looking for some extra flavor.

The Open door is a great location for first dates and post-work drinking and lounging, especially if you are into “Tapas.”

The food and service grades at an A. The seating and atmosphere however grades at a B. The pricing was a bit much for the portions and the hours were not consistent making the overall grade for this mellow Japanese restaurant a B.

The Japanese restaurant is easy to find from campus and is located at 122 S. Atlantic Blvd. on the corner of Atlantic and Garvey Ave. inMonterey   Park.

Open Door Japanese Izakaya restaurant is open Wednesdays and Thursdays at 5:30 p.m. and closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. It closes at 10:45 p.m. except on Wednesdays and Sundays when they close at 9:45 p.m.
