Tasty Garden (Garfield and Valley, Alhambra)

From top to bottom: taro tapioca pudding, red bean coconut cakes, daikon and curry fish balls, red ginger and preserved eggs, Portuguese seafood rice.

Not sugary but still nicely sweet, the tapioca pudding should very well be their trademark: taro, coffee, mango, durian, green tea... Oh geez, why do we even need Pinkberry?

Fish balls were crispy and rightly flavored. Slightly sweet red ginger was perfect on a hot summer day after some shopping spree in the Asian grocery stores in San Gabriel Valley.

Finally, here we go with the end-of-last-century colonial highlight: authentic Macau Portuguese yellow sauce is always a nice alternative for people that can't eat curry. Forget Japanese curry. That's for kids.

Every time I'm here I'm like a kid in a candy store. In fact, Joe came here and bought walnut shrimp takeout to surprise me after a super long day. Every girl has a weakness and Downtownchick's was totally cracked.
