This is one of those times that I vastly underestimated the excitement over a story… Ever since I told you about Little Asia’s impending return to Hawthorne, the interest has been astonishing. You may recall that the beloved purveyor of Asian food closed down on the corner of El Segundo and Hawthorne after a devastating fire some three years ago, and most thought that was the end of the popular restaurant. Then back in March of this year, I noticed that they appeared to be behind a new build out at 4624 W. Imperial Highway in Hawthorne, a stone’s throw from the old location. So, for all of you who have been carefully checking for details and demanding answers, I have this happy news: Little Asia is now open at their new location. An ABC application in the window means you’ll soon be able to toast their exultant return with beer and wine.
