9441 1/2 Las Tunas Dr (at west of Temple City Blvd, opposite Rite Aid), Temple City, California, USA, 91780

Serves meat, vegan options available. Little Taiwanese eatery with an open kitchen and several booths for seating. The owners work in the kitchen and are happy to answer questions about whether a menu item is vegan or not. Makes Taiwanese homestyle food as well as snack foods like steamed and pan-fried dumpling, scallion pancakes, stinky fried tofu, noodles and rice. Drinks and desserts include shaved ice with various toppings, boba milk tea (vegans request no milk), and others. Location is in a shopping plaza with lot parking. Previously 100% vegetarian restaurant, but now serves meat in addition to a vegetarian menu. Open Mon 11:00am-9:00pm, Wed-Sun 11:00am-9:00pm.

vegan / vegetarian Taiwanese food! - Edit

I love how this place has a separate extensive vegetarian menu. The items can be made vegan, just ask them for no eggs. I came here for lunch on a Sunday afternoon with a friend. This place is really small with limited seating, but they get the food out to you pretty quickly. This place is extremely inexpensive and I personally thought that the food was a little bit too salty for my liking, but besides that I enjoyed the food.

If you’re looking for some vegan / vegetarian Taiwanese food then this is the place for you! However if you’re not a fan of heavily salted food then you might not enjoy this place as much. Also, this place is cash only so be sure to bring cash eating here!

Pros: fast service , parking , vegetarian menu, ask for no eggs to make vegan

Cons: food is too salty

Go-To Taiwanese Place! - Edit

After going Vegan, I have always craved Taiwanese food, one of my favorite cuisines. I totally forgot about QQ, which was located 5 mins away from my home! They have delicious Taiwanese food and plenty of vegetarian (ask about eggs if vegan) options, but I always go for the veg. dried noodles. Simple, but yummy. I'm hoping one day they can make a vegan shrimp pancake, my favorite Taiwanese dish!

Pros: Lots of vegan and vegetarian options, self- servic

Cons: Some dishes are a bit oily

Fresh and Tasty - Edit

I really enjoy the food here. I used to eat here more often when it was completely vegetarian. I love that they had that good intention, but they couldn't survive in the area as a vegan/vegetarian restaurant. I trust that they know what a vegetarian/vegan is and make the food accordingly so I never have to worry about any of the ingredients. the food is always fresh and tasty and the service is great!

Pros: lots of vegan options and a lot of food for what y, love that is family owned, small business.

Good food Tiny Place - Edit

Had read about this place on HappyCow and ate here in June 2012. Here's my QQ Kitchen review.

Was here during lunch hour, June 2012. It's tiny little place tucked in a shopping plaza between a little Subway fast food and another shop. As soon as you walk in, you can see the open kitchen to the right. Help yourself to a booth, and the waitress comes to greet you.

For a small place, the menu is quite extensive: lots of Taiwanese food, snacks, drinks, and desserts. I lived in Taiwan for the first decade of my life, so seeing the menu gave me a sense of familiarity, and I wanted to try everything on the menu!

I got a green tea with boba (little black chewy tapicoa balls) and asked to leave out the "milk" part. The owner told me that the boba teas contain a non-dairy creamer. If you don't want that you have to specify. It was very good on a hot summer day.

I also got an order of pan-fried dumpling (also known as gyoza) that they make themselves and also sells frozen in bulk for take home. The dumplings were filled with greens, tiny firm tofu cubes, and slice of mushroom. A serving came with 8 perfect little pieces, crispy and brown on the bottom, soft and slight chewy on top. Yummy.

Inexpensive prices and authentic tasting Taiwanese cuisine. Can't wait to return for the "stinky tofu" with kimchi.
