“Straight from the food stalls of Taiwan”
Review of Why Thirsty

Why Thirsty
Ranked #104 of 236 Restaurants in San Gabriel
Cuisines: Taiwanese
Restaurant details
Reviewed 27 May 2014 via mobile

This is a new Taiwanese restaurant that specializes in cuisine reminiscent of the Taiwan street side food stalls. The tastes are authentic and delicious and the prices are very cheap too. For dishes, their five spice popcorn chicken and their 'railroad' rice is very good. Their bubble teas are also excellent; I recommend their osmanthus oolong and jasmine milk teas. The restaurant is always full and there is a slight wait but this attests to their popularity.

Yummy~ The best Taiwanese food! The servers were nice. Staffs here are very friendly. The restaurant space is small, but the food comes out quick. I love their Railroad Pork Chop noodle and popcorn chicken. It's not covered with over-fried flour, but real juicy chicken. Their drinks are also fabulous! I love that they have unique options not found at most other tea houses, such as Assam milk tea and jujube tea. And for the price, you get a good amount of food. Highly recommend. You should try it!

If you do not like salty and MSG in food then this is the one for you. They have the best pork chop in town.

I go there almost once a week and can be crowded at time. The best is there popcorn chicken. I like the pork chop rice too (#1 in rice section). The noodles in peanut sauce is ok. The drinks are also good. Call ahead if you want Togo food pick up. I go there almost once a week and can be crowded at time. The best is there popcorn chicken.
