Headed to Rowland Heights this afternoon - recommendations?

I have to be in Rowland Heights this afternoon for business. Of course, I want to stop for lunch in this wonderful mecca of Asian food. (I had to be there the other day and went to Java Spice.)

I see Newport Seafood and Curry House on the map, but I have been to those places. I have never had beef rolls or those cat's ears noodles. Is there a place around here to get these dishes?

Any recommendations would be appreciated. Thanks!

  1. Earthen for northern/bready/dumpling dishes. Green onion pancakes. I really like their tofu & thousand year egg appetizer. Looks scary but tastes wonderful.
    Shufeng Garden for spicy Sichuan food. Cold dishes in the deli case, water boiled fish, chili wonton, etc.
    Class 302 for mango snowy/mango flavored milk shaved ice (I like the special one with the chewy mochi balls)

    1. Go to the shopping center on the NE corner of Colima and Fullerton. At one end is Golden Spoon (18347 Colima) which has cats ears. At the other arm is Easy Earthen (18303), the new branch of Earthen. Between the two you can stuff yourself.

      1. Thanks! I went to Golden Spoon. They don't have cat's ears on the menu anymore, btw. I enjoyed it nevertheless. I'll hit up Earthen next time. Recs were much appreciated!

          Surprised they didn't have it since it was one of their specialties. It wasn't on the menu in the ordinary sense, but rather the legend at the top of the noodle section said that the numerous noodles dishes were available with a variety of noodles, including cats ears.

            Was there today too for lunch, asked the waitress for cat's ears noodles but either didn't understand me or she was struggling with her English. Everything else we ordered was quite tasty.

              Yes, the first time I went I asked for cat ears and the waitress didn't understand me. Then I pointed to the part of the menu that said cats ears was one of the alternatives (in this case, I believe, for preparing the dish listed as chicken chow mein), and that rang the bell.

                I hope they still have car ear noodle. That is one of my favorite items there.
