Thach Che L.A. for Vietnamese Sweets

Thach Che L.A.
531 West Valley Boulevard
San Gabriel

After lunching at Chungking I visited a tea store and then Thach Che. There I had the banana and yucca in coconut milk, the coconut cubes and the plum juice--all quite lovely. The place also sells hotdogs, Vietnamese sandwiches, boba drinks, Vietnamese black rice with coconut milk, green bean butter and all of those other Vietnamese delicacies so wonderful on a hot day after a fiery Sichuanese lunch. (The women in the shop on Saturday both speak Mandarin.)

The noodles at Chungking are the best Chinese noodles I've had in California. Both the dandan mian and the liang mian are vegetarian.
