Supreme Dragon Rowland Heights - RIP

I did not even notice it till I was on Yelp today, and saw that Supreme Dragon was closed. It's was located in the Hong Kong Plaza, named for the Hong Kong Market that used to be there.

LA.Eater had an article that was insightful. I thought the prices went up and quality went down. One of the Yelp reviews mentioned they got new owners that short staffed the restaurant. Another article mentioned how there is a lot more competition in the area now selling Beef Noodle Soup.

The plaza used to be very nice, but now it has a lot of empty store fronts. A friend that had a restaurant there had a direct competitor open right next to them. They got into a price war, and my friend's restaurant survived, but it left a bad flavor. They then sold the restaurant, and the new owner could not make it work.

Three Family Restaurant is in the same plaza that has a good Beef Soup.

Immigrants from Taiwan used to own many of restaurants in the area. Now it seems PRC immigrants are very much taking over the helm in Luolan kang.

I have seen that, where originally going back 20 years ago in Rowland Heights the community was mostly Taiwanese, and the restaurants were Taiwanese run. I have seen some restaurant owners move to Irvine. I have also seen Taiwanese restaurants, that are run by people from Mainland China, in the Rowland Heights area. It's interesting the changes here. I have also noticed where a lot of owners go through multiple owners. Change names, cuisines, etc. I am surprised by the high turn over with Chinese restaurants. Of course 59% of restaurants fail within the first 3 years. 43% for franchisees.

If the PRC hasn't yet conquered Taiwan, at least the mainlanders are gradually buying out Taiwanese immigrant enclaves (Monterey Park, Rowland Heights, and Flushing, Queens, NYC).
