    Taiwanese breakfast served in a wonderfully spartan strip mall outpost. Get the savory fan tuan (rice roll) with black rice, egg, and pickle, with a sweet soymilk. Everything here is pretty good.

    A fast and inexpensive spot for Taiwanese breakfast/lunch food. Voted top ten places to have breakfast by LA Weekly. Large size soy milk is ginormous and purple (they call it brown)rice roll is tasty!

    The food speaks for itself. What sets this place apart is Lilian, the "friendly young girl with the glasses, pony tail, mole on her cheek that can speak fluent Chinese and English". She is awesome!

    Taiwanese breakfast here is so good, get the radish cake or a fan tuan with egg and pickles and a hot peanut or soy milk to drink.

    Their fan tuans are bomb, and they have really good zongzi as well, plus all the usual Chinese breakfast foods!

    They specialize in Taiwanese breakfast items. Most of the breakfast items are carb heavy. Cash only

    Try the cold soy milk! Onion pancakes are crispy but not too hard. Tasty and probably super healthy!

    Veggie items have green circle next to them... Seemingly not green circle veggie items are so because they use pork oil for those
