Emperor Noodles Finally Opens

Chandavkl | Sep 11, 2012 01:35 PM

After months of preparation, Emperor Noodles has finally opened up in San Gabriel, and it seems like it might have been worth the wait. They make their own noodles in house and serve a variety of noodle soup, thought mostly with strange piggy parts. However most noteworthy are a couple of Shanghai specialties. Wild yellowfish egg rolls are something I haven't seen before and are quite tasty, though a little fishy. And while shen jen bao are commonly available, I haven't see any like this before. To borrow a phrase from Jonathan Gold, these babies are weapons grade. They're the size of a small cupcake and toasted with sesame seeds probably a third of the way up. Pork filling is conventional size, though. Address is 800 W. Las Tunas Dr., #300.
