Tasty Noodle House recently expanded into Los Angeles proper, but the original in San Gabriel is far, far better. The stripmall restaurant is tiny - there are seven tables - so unless you’re here at an off-hour, you’ll be putting your name on the list and waiting. The crowd is a very-SGV mix of grandpas slurping noodles (and not really talking), families, and younger people shouting on their cell phones. Whether you’re here with a group or on your own, you need to have three things on your table: the buttery scallion pancakes, the enormous beef noodle soup, and the doughy/juicy pan-fried pork buns.
