Orange Bistro@Alhambra ★★

New Taiwanese Restaurant in Downtown Alhambra. Pricier than usual but big portions. Better for large group. The Cup Chicken Combination was rich and flavorful with Squid and Intestine. Best to order a bowl of rice for $1.50 to pair it. Taiwanese Assorted Pan-Fried Rice Noodles was nice, and it's also better with rice. Oyster Omelet was nice. Thin Noodle with Black Sesame Oil was a big bowl of plain noodles. Nice and friendly staff. Had some language barrier because I didn't understand Mandarin. Complimentary pot of tea. No wait for Sunday lunch.

Oyster Omelet $15.99

Caffè Italiano@Alhambra

New Restaurant@Alhambra. (4.5 stars on Yelp) Probably won't be back for a while. The Crispy Zucchini and complimentary bread were great, but that's about it. Mushroom Risotto wasn't good at all. I hope other dishes are better. Waitress seemed to be inexperienced. Good thing that I've got $10 for $20 coupon from Yelp deal. Free wi-fi was nice though. For a similar price, I would go to Celestino in Pasadena instead with greater quality and service.

Zucchine Croccanti al Prosecco e Menta Piperita

Risotto Funghi e Zafferano di Navelli
