We were amazed that Leslee Komaiko found a place in the East San Gabriel Valley worthy of mention -- Coco Palm ["Holiday Cheer," Dec. 8]. We have never eaten there, though a Cuban friend tells us the food is good. We will give it a try.
Claremont and other communities in this part of the San Gabriel Valley also have some restaurants worthy of mention. While we hope that Komaiko didn't experience any ill effects from her journey or go through the traffic hell we did last night in Hollywood, we hope that she will make more of an effort to include our restaurants.
