i went to this small restaurant yesterday. when i say small, i mean it's about the size of my bedroom. they have room for about 15 people. it's possible to have 20 people there, but things would definitely get knocked over. i ordered the pork and vegetable wontons in soup (i think they were called dumplings on the menu). i bit into them and was surprised at first. i thought it tasted a bit peculiar, but in a really good way. then i realized they used spinach instead of bok choy or some other bland vegetable. it comes in this big bowl of soup with some spinach, pickled veggies, etc. i thought it was pretty good. since the restaurant is so small, i could see what everybody else was ordering. about 1/3 of the people there had szechuan dan dan noodles. and they have a lot of taiwanese snacky things, like pig ears, "old water" tofu and eggs (this is a literal translation, i don't know what it's called in english), seaweed (more like kelp), lots of stuff.

there are two locations.

i went to the 525 west valley blvd. location in alhambra. the sign is kind of blocked by a tree. but it's across from sam woo bbq if you know where that is. they're closed on wednesdays.

there's another location at 534 east valley blvd. #10 in san gabriel. they're closed on tuesdays. so the business card says. i haven't been to this location but maybe it's bigger.
