Hey Chowhounders! I'm hosting a dinner at Pa Pa Walk this Wednesday, 11/28, with my dining group and would love to have some of you join us. For those of you unfamiliar with Pa Pa Walk, which is in San Gabriel, read below:
In Taiwanese, the words "Pa Pa" means "all over town." Taking that further, "Pa Pa Walk" means to "get out around town." Given the definition of the restaurant's name, it seems fitting that they serve food that you might normally order from a stall or cart on the streets of Taiwan.
With these dishes being "small plates" and fairly inexpensive, it's easy to mix and match from stall to stall as you walk through the market. It's definitely a great way try a lot of different things through the course of an hour or two.
At Pa Pa Walk, there are over 100 menu items, but to cut through that I talked to the manager and he gave me suggestions of the must tries, so for the most part, I'd like to build our meal based on the items he felt best represented true Taiwanese street food. That way we can get as full an experience as possible outside of China. Since all the food is tapas-style, the food bill will be split evenly between us.
Delicious food. Great conversation. Cool people. A triple threat that actually isn't threatening at all. Instead, it's a relaxing mid-week break in preparation for the weekend ahead. So come out and join us. :)
If you're interested, drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll send you the eVite.
