Two meals in sgv. Please help!

We are in the IE visiting family for a week. Usually
Plenty of time to eat lots of dumplings, noodles, dim
Sum and the like in sgv. But this time heading to San Diego for part
Of week so not so much noodling time.

So two daytime meals in the sgv. What do you think?
Typically we eat at mei long, dtf, the other dumplings
Place in the plaza with mei long for dumplings and noodles.
For dim sum we prefer the menu places. But there is
So much we haven't tried! So need help on what is good right now and
Where to spend my precious tummy time.

Low or no msg is a plus but whatever. It's two great
Meals. I'll swell up like a balloon for that if needed.

Thanks chowers!

      The Canton Gourmet and Bakery sign is gone--it now actually says Beijing Pie House. Since it's a literal stone's throw away from Kam Hong, why not a twofer? Also I'll throw in a suggestion for the Guilin rice noodle soup at Eight Cafe (or Dandan Guilin Rice Noodle, the moniker used at the San Gabriel Square branch).

      Dandan Guilin Rice Noodle
      140 W Valley Blvd, San Gabriel, CA 91776

      Beijing Pie House
      846 E Garvey Ave, Monterey Park, CA 91755

        For what it's worth, they've also added (as specials) a cold chicken sesame noodle dish.

          Chan, What else do you recommend at Eight Cafe? Good chow fun?

          1. re: granadafan

            No chow fun there that I know of. This is the Guilin style rice noodle--somewhat reminiscent of spaghetti in size, shape, texture. Frankly I've never made it past the Guilin rice noodle soup, and most other diners don't either, though they do have non-noodle dishes too.

        Nem Nuong Ninh Hoa (Central Vietnamese)

        Huge Tree Pastry (Taiwanese)
