Half & Half Good Old Time Cafe@San Gabriel ★★★

Cozy Authentic Taiwanese Cafe. I actually prefer Half & Half over the 2-Michelin-star-restaurant Kato in terms of price-worth and service. It's 1/10 of Kato's price with better service. Amazed by the attentiveness of the servers in the cafe. Been in love with their Noodle Soup with Thick Clear Noodles since my college time. You can choose different noodles and toppings. Satay Udon Soup could get oily sometimes. Have communal condiments in the back. Chicken Nuggets are Popcorn Chicken in generous portion. Boba Milk Tea is usually on the sweet side, so I recommend requesting 50% sweetness instead. The only downside is that their MSG is a bit heavy, so make sure to drink lots of water to keep hydrated. Mark on their paper menu to order. Best to come when they open to avoid the wait. Free parking in lot.

Good Old Time Noodle Soup w/ Thick Clear Noodles $10.68
mixed combination topping with garlic chips, spicy paste, bean sprouts, mushroom slices, and cilantro

Satay Udon Soup $9.68
poached egg, seafood balls, and vegetables

Chicken Nuggets $8.98
served with mayo on the side

Thick Clear Noodles

Boba Milk Tea $3.68
remember to ask for less sweetness

Yelp Elite: Cheers Bar & Grill@San Gabriel ★

Yelp Elite Perk: Free Margarita + BBQ Chicken Pizza. Also got a free drawstring bag from the perk. Thanks to this Yelp Elite Perk, or else I would have never found this place in the San Gabriel Valley. A bar with nightlife ambience – with karaoke stage, pool table, and couches. Decent food & drinks. Margarita was nice and refreshing. BBQ Chicken Pizza and Cheesy Tots were tasty and up to standards. The oil-absorbent paper they used was cute with comic strips (eg. Garfield) printed on it. Bartender George was nice and friendly. They also have bottomless Mimosa on Sunday from 11am - 2pm. Street or lot parking.

Watermelon Margarita (originally $12)

Hand Tossed BBQ Chicken Pizza (originally $17)
chicken breast, caramelized onions, yellow peppers, cilantro

Cheesy Tots $12
sharp cheddar, bacon crumbles
