Starting in June, Alhambrans have a new way to support local family businesses while at the same time creating fun new experiences in your own community. The Alhambra Restaurant of the Week highlights the flavors of your neighborhood with a new restaurant each week. Created and coordinated by the Alhambra Chamber of Commerce, the Restaurant of the Week will showcase the diverse culinary offerings that represent the best of local dining in the City of Alhambra!
To discover the featured eateries in the program, you can visit the new, food-centric Alhambra website: AlhambraEats.com
As Alhambra continues to be a celebrated dining destination for culinary adventurers from across the region and beyond, this weekly program will highlight the diversity of cuisines that can only be found here. From mainstay classics like Bun N Burger and The Hat to new destinations like Ipoh Kopitiam and Kogane, Alhambra is one of the best eating cities in greater Los Angeles.
Residents and visitors can participate by simply patronizing the designated restaurant during their week, ordering a familiar standby or trying one of the Restaurant of the Week recommendations, and getting to know the business owners, staff, and manager.
You’ll be able to identify featured restaurants with a new designated decal as well as social media posts on Facebook and Instagram throughout their designated week. Then, the information will be accessed in perpetuity on alhambraeats.com, which will also feature a map, an evolving dining guide, and food and restaurant news.
“This program is as much about the people behind the food, as it is about the food itself,” explained Alhambra Chamber CEO John Bwarie, who created the program to connect community members to the unique people cooking across the city. When a restaurant is featured, the chefs and owners will also be highlighted so you know the creators behind your food.
The Alhambra Chamber of Commerce strives to create a vibrant local economy and build a community where people want to live, work, shop, and dine. AlhambraEats.com and Restaurant of the Week are part of this effort by providing resources, connecting businesses to customers, and creating a resilient community.
“People who eat together are more connected and invested in each other, creating a stronger community,” explained Bwarie, who is committed to curating the list of over 175 restaurants for possible consideration of this weekly designation.
