LAReview

San Gabriel’s Golden Leaf serves Taiwanese comfort food that’ll combat any cold - and probably also have you inventing fake illnesses so you have an excuse to go here. Their speciality is vermicelli soup - we like the beef one because it’s rich and has huge, tender pieces of short rib, but not so heavy that you won’t be able to get any work done if you have it for lunch. The sliced pork chop with rice and oyster pancake are also highly worth your time.
