This regional Western Chinese place has cropped up in Westwood and I figured I’d try it, even though most places west of the SGV aren’t really worth it.
It’s in a little alcove on Westwood Blvd right next door to he old Sunnin and down the street from the early Flektor office I had in 2006.
The small menu of mostly noodle based Western Chinese dishes.
Steamed dumplings. Perfectly yummy steamed pork potstickers.
Guilin Soup. Spicy rice noodle soup with beef pickled Chinese cabbage,vegetable and peanuts. It wasn’t super spicy even though I got max spice, but it was tasty and interesting. Sort of like a spicy Pho with lots of Chinese pickled vegetables.
For super fast Chinese this was pretty “authentic” and interesting, and certainly very authentic for Westwood. Everyone in there was Chinese — always a good sign. I have to come back and try more, particularly the soup with beef bone and snail broth!
