Garhing, the honest-to-Jesus Chinese restaurant at 1048 South Federal Boulevard that took over the space formerly belonging to JJ Chinese Seafood Restaurant, another honest-to-Jesus Chinese chow house that relocated to 2500 West Alameda, is shuttered. No more deep-fried pork intestines, bamboo fungus, Cantonese-style porridge or mo po tofu. According to a hand-written sign posted in the window, the joint is closed for remodeling until next month, at which time it'll reopen as Hong Kong Barbecue, switching out chop sticks and noodles for two-pronged forks and Hong Kong-style hot dogs.
