Yum Cha Cafe offers an unusual treat: brown sugar rice cakes. ipsedixit discovered this little shop tucked into the San Gabriel Superstore.
Brown sugar adds a whole new dimension to the rice cakes’ subtle sweetness. If you love rice cakes, these are irresistible.
They also have very good char siu bao (BBQ sauce is sweet and tangy, but doesn’t drown out the pork bits) and cheong fun, or rice noodle, that’s fresh and tender, with a tasty (optional) shrimp filling.
