{mesa} not so chinatown

July 10, 2009

What else is in Mesa? Meekong Plaza. I think this place is supposed to be the Valley’s version of Chinatown. Frankly, it’s not very Chinatown-like — too clean and too empty. Granted, it debuted at a bad time (during this recession) but most of the store fronts are still empty and the place is pretty desolate, except maybe the Asian market. It’s sad.
