As far as dumpling houses, there are a number of them in San Gabriel/MP but I don't remember the English names of them. There's a good one that's near the corner of Garfield and Valley as I recall.

You're thinking of either NBC Seafood or Ocean Star. IMO, NBC is better. Jason, you're Chinese and don't like Dim Sum? Truly a Banana.

NBC is pretty good, personally for pure dimsum I prefer either Sea Harbor on Rosemead, Sam Woo (which is more traditional, larger, and has a huge selection) in San Gabriel Square, or perhaps even Full House in Arcadia on Naomi...

Dim sum, but never adventurous enough for the shark fin. But you called me on it so I now I'll have to try. Just a few more days till I can actually eat this thread in person. Hopefully Rising Sun and H&M will be open by next week, otherwise they'll have to wait till Dec. (Fingers crossed)

1. Huge fan of Lovebirds. Just had the turkey, avocado, and jack on croissant on Saturday for lunch. 2. Heard good things about Europane but have not been. Is it completely European or is it owned/operated by Asians? 3. Grey One is on Holly. 4. What's drunken spaghetti? 5. Rye GB - What clothing brand do you own/represent? Oops, just read the answer. 6. What is Marston's located? 7. Good thai in Pasadena? Check out Saladang on Fair Oaks. 8. This is the second weekend I've missed eating at DTF. I am not sure why you guys are being so critical about it. From what I understand, DTF on Baldwin is the only US representation of DTF Taiwan and over there it's considered the best. That's like having the best sushi restaurant in Japan open a shop in the US. I am definitely going! 9. Ocean Star is what launched the NBV investigation and what prompted LA to start using letter grades in the windows of restaurants. Would I still eat there? Sure. But would you?

1. Try the chicken caesar on toasted sourdough with avo and swiss. I'd make babies with that sandwich if I could.
3. Yeah, forgot about that place. It's right next to the Tibetan place I mentioned.
4.It's a spicy Thai version of spaghetti, minus the marinara sauce. What I once thought was location unique, I found out is fairly common at smaller thai places. Warning, though: it'll leave you crying but damn is it good.
7. Saladang simply sets the standard for classy thai food. Lunch is ideal, but dinner can't be beat for atmosphere (at least at Saladang Song). I could probably sign away my first born for some coconut shrimp and a glass of thai ice tea right about now.

I think in general if you're worried about letter grades, you shouldn't be eating in San Gabriel valley. I don't let a few bugs get in the way of good food.

Although speaking of Chinese, anyone know the Oak Tree Inn in South Pas on Fair Oaks? Above average lunch, big portions, linen tables, and the bill for two people w/ tax/tip comes out to $13. Or go ahead and eat @ Panda across the street.

I've been there for dinner....good place. Still, my go to chinese restaurant is Panda Inn on Foothill (the restaurant that spawned Panda Express)...I've been going there since 1975 and it's still my fave Chinese food anywhere. Anglo-whitey-Chinese food at its finest. There's really nothing "Chinese" about it, hence my love of it.

Well, hell, if you're going over there for Chinese you might as well stop by Kabuki across the street for some discounted sushi. The Italian place next door isn't bad, either.

naw, Kabuki is on my banned list. For MANY reasons that span the last 8 years. Basically, comes down to bad service, nonexistent service, unaccomodating service, and every cooked item I've ever had at different occasions ends up giving me the runs. I shit you not. And this goes for their other Old Town Pasadena location AND the one at Victoria Gardens. This restaurant just cant do right by me at all.

but I had a group of Euro friends living here that loved going there for the 50% off sushi so I'd end up there not of my own accord.

That really sucks. In truth I've only been to the Foothill location twice while the majority of the time I'm at the one at Howard Hughes off the 405. Never had a problem with service and my salmon teriyaki comes out about as quick as the sushi. Where do you go in Old Town for sushi?
