First of all, congratulations to myself and the other astute diners who made their way to dine at Tasty Restaurant in Arcadia during the weeks that they were in operation. In the old days the conventional wisdom was to wait a while before eating at a new restaurant to let them iron the kinks out. Today it’s pull over and stop when you see a new restaurant because you don’t know if it’ll still be there the next time you go by.
Quickly replacing Tasty Restaurant is something that I’m not sure what the name is. In lieu of the classy block lettering, which has been pulled down, is merely a banner that says “Grand Opening.” Inside are brand spanking new menus which say “Liang’s Kitchen.” However, when you pay, the receipt says something entirely different–and it isn’t Shang Jie Kitchen either. Rather, it says Cindy’s Noodle Land. Since there are three women out front who seem to be running the show, and no picture of Mama Liang staring out over the dining room, I’ll go with Cindy’s Noodle Land. Unless they’re just messing with us.
