There’s a tasty new place that opened up late last year in Lomita, California and it’s no other than Tasty Noodle House. It’s a Shanghainese cuisine eatery that has several California branches. They have restaurants in Hacienda heights, Irvine, Cerritos, Chino Hills and San Diego.
Tasty Noodle House has quite an extensive menu and during my visit here, my initial thought was their menu was comparable to the size of Cheesecake Factory’s! (Insert Hello Kitty Foodie giggles here :D). Instead of pages and pages of entrees and cheesecake however, this place had pages and pages of delicious Shanhainese selections. 😉
One of the first noticeable items is their amazing line of up of various dumplings. Their dumpling menu ranges from different vegetarian, meat and seafood wontons to different wonton soups.
I first tried their Shangai Sticky Rice Shiu-Mai.
I’ve always been a fan of sticky rice at dim sum restaurants. I found this shiu-mai to be so interesting because it is a dumpling with sticky rice inside. It has a chewy dumpling skin on the outside and inside is the moist sticky rice. It’s a very unique take on sticky rice.
One of my favorite dumplings here is actually one of their soup offerings. I absolutely love their Shanghai Wonton Soup.
It’s a very heartwarming broth filled shitake mushrooms, veggies, wonton strips and ten soft luscious dumplings. The dumplings are generously filled with flavorful pork.
Speaking of pork, Tasty Noodle House has a very popular dish in their Shanghai Grilled Pork Bun.
The Shanghai Grilled Pork Buns is a absolutely wonderful! They’re huge in size and are filled with a nice amount of flavorful pork. I also like the touch of sesame seeds that they have on the buns.
Aside from different dumplings, they have various rice dishes. I tried their Yeung Chow Fried Rice.
This is a very fulfilling fried rice dish. It is packed with several ingredients such as shrimp, Chinese Sausage and veggies.
Last but definitely not least is their extensive noodle selection. After all this is Tasty Noodle House. 😉
One of the first noodles I tried was their Shanghai Style Chow Mein.
I liked how this dish had chicken and Chinese broccoli. It’s got your greens and protein. You can check off healthy eats with this one.
The other noodle dish I got to try was there Basil Beef Noodles.
The basil in this dish is very distinct and one will instantly taste the flavoring at first bite.
Tasty Noodle House definitely lives up to it’s name. It wasn’t just the noodles that was tasty but their dumplings, soup, fried rice and pork buns. Hmm perhaps their name of should’ve been Tasty Everything House. 😉 Overall a very tasty place. 🙂
