Happy Noodle

Happy Noodle
4815 El Monte Ave
Temple City, CA 91780

I found out about Happy Noodle a few months ago, and finally got around to trying it.  Located next door to a liquor store and an apartment complex.  It's a small restaurant, that takes up two spaces in this strip mall.  You walk into the lobby, and the kitchen is to your left and the dining area is on your right.  There are about 10-12 tables, most of which were empty I got there, but packed within 30 minutes of being there.

Pan fried vegetable dumplings- $7.50.  This was terrible!  Visually, it doesn't look good with that black film  Inside the dumpling was chives, glass noodles, and eggs!  So, if you're a vegan, you can't have this dumpling!  But, this lacked flavor. 

Stir fried shrimp- $11.50.  As bad as the vegetable dumplings were, this stir fried shrimp was awesome!! Snap peas, red bell peppers, and fungus in a light sauce.  The shrimp was medium size and plentiful!  After a taking a couple spoonfuls, I counted the amount of shrimp and got 10!!  There must have been 12-15 shrimp in this dish.  Great flavor and well worth the price!

Shrimp chow mein, $7.95.There were a good number of shrimp, and the noodles were cooked perfectly.  Carrots, snap peas, mushrooms, and onions filled out this dish.  A very good example of shrimp chow mein!

Service was good.

I would go back to Happy Noodle.
