Yun Noodle House--Healthy Taiwanese Food In Arcadia

Chandavkl | Dec 4, 2009 12:43 PM

"Healthy Taiwanese food" almost sounds like an oxymoron to me given the liberal use of various pig parts in Taiwanese food. This has not stopped Yun Noodle House in the Arcadia 99 Ranch Shopping Center food court from pressing forward. The menu is very limited--only seven main dishes and a handful of side orders. The main dishes are mostly noodles with ground pork or noodles with beef stew meat, not my idea of Westside lite. What makes all this healthy is the lack of MSG and sparing use of oil. Well I guess that's a lot healthier than making the same dishes with lots of oil and MSG. Street address is 1220 S. Golden West Ave., #E.

As an aside, Arcadia seems to be in the midst of an invasion of branch Chinese restaurants from the west San Gabriel Valley. Besides existing branches of Garden Cafe and Tasty Garden, I spied new branches of 101 Noodle Express, Liang's Kitchen and Eight Cafe. Also there's another new place in the 99 Ranch Shopping Center--a second hot pot restaurant. This is a puzzle since the existing hot pot restaurant there, Money Pot, seems to be perpetually empty.
