Chendu Taste in Alhamber
Another introduction to a eatery by Ms. Jen, Chendu Taste, 828 W Valley Blvd Alhambra CA 91803. There was a bit of a line, so we waited for about fifteen minutes, not bad. Ms. jen came a little earlier and wrote us on the waiting list. So, this place is fairly well known, evidently. Jonathan Gold wrote that this is one of his fav, said Ms. Jen. The interior is active and energetic. The servers are are attentive but it was great to have Ms. Jen there to translate. We ordered Mung Bean Noodle w/ Chile Sauce, Toothpick Beef, and Boiled Fish with Green Peppers Sauce. Every dish was deep and fresh and delicious. Ms. Jen said there's an authenticity to the flavors that folks from China really appreciate, hence the line and the very happy brilliant mood in the dining area. We had a lot of leftovers. The food was delicious later that week. With all the chilies and and the freshness of the ingredients, it kept well.
