I support Alhambra Source as often as I can because I believe a free and independent press is vital to the democratic process. No other news outlet with high journalistic standards consistently covers the stories and issues that matter to our community.

Dip's Grill opens on Main Street

Dip's Grill is now serving up Vietnamese fusion on Main Street. The family-owned restaurant opened its doors on Main and 1st Street Wednesday after closing its Valley Boulevard and New Avenue restaurant on May 18. 

Ivy Diep, one of the Diep siblings who own and run the restaurant, said the family outgrew its previous location and wanted a bigger space. The family considered moving to another city, but chose to stay in Alhambra. “We’ve gained a really solid customer base in the Alhambra area," Diep said. "It’s kind of the heart, the sentimental pull to stay in the area."

The menu is based off of recipes from the Dieps' mother dishes the siblings say they enjoyed eating while growing up in the San Gabriel Valley. Dip's Grill's most popular items are the pork belly buns, spicy beef noodle soup — the family’s take on bun bo hue with a traditional broth, but without pork feet or coagulated blood — and the sautéed salad. 

The family will take its time preparing for more business and say they will not hold a grand opening at their new location. “We’re just going to quietly open and see how it goes,” Diep said. “We want to make sure we figure things out before it gets busier. We want to make sure we’re efficient.”

Dip’s Grill is located at 39 West Main St., Alhambra, Calif., 91801. It’s open Sunday-Thursday (closed Tuesdays) 11 a.m.-10 p.m. and Friday and Saturday 11 a.m.-midnight. Happy Hour is Monday-Friday 3-6 p.m. and Friday and Saturday after 10 p.m. Connect with Dip’s Grill on Facebook and Twitter.
