More Chinese on Sawtelle – yay!
It’s in the row of fast casual joints by Daikokuya.
And it’s sort of a hybrid boba tea shop fast casual Taiwanese place.
Pictures on the menu.
Passionfruit green tea with boba. There is the usual vast array of such drinks.
Grapefruit green tea with boba.
Popcorn chicken. Tasty. Very fried.
Fried squid balls. Yep. If you’ve got the balls, eat ’em.
“lunch’s” come with this microscopic egg drop soup. It wasn’t bad.
Szechuan fish filet noodle soup. The fish itself wasn’t the most amazing and it wasn’t seething in peppers like at a real Szechuan place but it had some mala (numb taste) and a whole bunch of noodles. Not bad.
Scrambled eggs with shrimp over rice. Weird as these egg, sauce, rice dishes are — I kinda love them.
House fried rice. Always tasty.
Sesame Balls. 2 balls in one day! Filled with red bean paste.
Popcorn Chicken is sort of like a low end version of Little Fatty. Or Little Fatty is like a high end artsy Popcorn Chicken. Nothing wrong with that. Good extra option to have on Sawtelle.
