After 20-years behind the bar at Echo Park’s Little Joy, Gloria Ramirez is turning your tips into her dream project, as she opens up her own restaurant this Saturday right next to the haunt, in the former home of Phnom Penh Restaurant. According to The Eastsider, Gloria’s Kitchen is a 45-seat Mexican-Salvadoran diner open Tuesdays through Sundays. Ramirez tells the blog she “loves to cook” and is looking forward to bringing her carne asada to Portia Street.
