Via the LA Eastside blog, take a trip down memory lane of some of the San Gabriel valley's departed eateries. I was more of a Westsider in the old days, but we too had Sambo's, of course, and Farrell's, and the Helms bakery truck. But I can't believe I had never heard of The Tikis in Monterey Park. Granted, I'm just an amateur tikiphile, not an advanced one, but this place sounds amazing -- underground lava tubes? Erupting volcano? Jungle trails? Why on earth would they ever get rid of this place?
