A “Taiwanese burger,” or gua bao, is a madly wondrous thing: a mix of lean stew pork and melt-in-your-mouth fatty pork belly, salty-sour pickled cabbage, cilantro, and peanut-sugar powder in a fresh steamed bun that’s probably taken for granted as street food back in Taiwan.

The one at Yi Mei is delicious, says PandanExpress. The pork is meltingly tender, the bun nice and soft and smeared with a delectable sweet sauce.

Note that the former Yi Mei by the San Gabriel Superstore on Valley changed its name to Yee May, so it may not be under the same ownership, points out Chandavkl. The one in Rowland Heights is still good, though.
