  1. Same old, same old.

    Same dishes, same quality, same onery owner/chef and same quixotic hours (i.e., basically just lunch)

    Nothing's changed.

      hehehehe... Your enthusiasm for this restaurant is simply underwhelming.

        Just went for the first time 12/3/05. Found the tza-jiang mien to be delicious <--highly recommended. I love the portions. The small bowl is perfect for someone petite like me! They also had a pretty good cold papaya dish :) I'll be moving into the neighborhood soon so i'll definitely be getting a ton of take-out from this place. They have take-out until 6pm.

        If your in search of noodles, I highly recommend the Mandarin Noodle House (Jing Yu) just a few blocks east from Dai Ho, on the north side of Las Tunas just before you get to the 99cent store. Mandarin Noodle House has the best Pork Chop Noodle and Onion Pancake (Tsong Yoh Bing). To die for :)

      2. I agree with Monkeyqueen on Mandarin Noodle Deli. Good Taiwanese style beef noodle soup, although not filled to the top with red chili oil. the onion pancake, beef pancake and potstickers (guo tieh) are all very good. can't go wrong here.

        1. This might be a bit OT but does anybody know where I can get good beef noodle soup super super mild?

          I asked for it last time at Dai Ho and almost got banned! lol, crazy beef noodle soup-nazi owner guy!

              Try MY WAY DELI.

              735 W. Garvey Ave.
              Monterey Park

            2. Try Mandarin Noodle Deli in Temple City or Noodle King in Alhambra. If you want, you can also tell the server "shao lah" which means 'less spicy'. With Dai Ho, there is no such thing as a personal request.

              1. Tea Station has really good mild beef noodle soup. It's my favorite.

                1. I've never been to the Temple city one. I usually go to the San Gabriel one on Valley/San Gabriel. I like their Dan Dan Noodle and Spicy Beef Tripe Noodle Soup.

                  If you like Beef Noodle soup, I recommand Dumpling 10053 (10053 Valley Blvd. #2, El Monte, CA 91733, 626) 350-0188). I really like their Beef Noodle soup. While you are there, be sure to order the Pork, Crab and Sea Cucumber Boiled Dumplings. It is the best dumpling!

                    Dumpling 10053 Sounds great! I think my husband and I will try it this week! We live just around the corner!
