J&J was an authentic Chinese restaurant I found in a little Asian plaza in San Gabriel. I couldn’t read any of the Chinese signs but I did see a market and a foot massage place so I knew it was legitimate.

crab and pork soup dumplings

All the reviews online talked about the crab and pork soup dumplings. It was nice, on the east coast, the soup dumplings are humongous and difficult to bite into because it’s so hot but on the west coast, the soup dumplings are bite size. These little gems were packed full of flavor. Very delicious and I could see why all the hype.

Shanghai noodle

Another popular item on the menu was the Shanghai noodles. Flour noodles tossed with soy sauce, veggies and beef. I didn’t think this dish was as great as the xiao long bao (soup dumplings). If I’m ever in this area again, I will definitely return for the soup dumplings.
