I heard from this guy and this kid that a new Daikokuya is opening in Monterey Park so I decided to get in my car and scope out the location. Sure enough, a peek inside #241 revealed the makings of a classic Daikokuya. For you locals, it'll be taking over the old Genki Sushi Japanese Fusion spot and is in the same center as Shin-Sen-Gumi. Opening is scheduled for sometime in mid-February so hopefully we won't have to wait much longer. Until then, here are some sneak peaks of the inside.
I love the old-Japan decor. It really makes you feel like you're travelling back in time.
From the looks of it, they should make their scheduled opening. I'll try to give them a call soon to see if we can get an exact date.
