Taiwanese Cold Dishes & Noodles at Cindy’s Kitchen 金葫蘆煄醬滷味 in Hacienda Heights, CA
This is the place to go for a great variety of cold appetizers you can choose from, and the appetizers run from $5.00 to $12.00 per order. With most being under $8, it was easy to order a huge variety of dishes to share. Aside from the tasty cold appetizers, Cindy’s Kitchen serves up some decent pan fried noodles and noodle soups as well.
Some of the better cold appetizers we noshed on included their Smoked Duck, Spiced Chicken, and Spicy Chicken Gizzards (which I somehow missed taking a photo of). The flavors were quite pronounced. The smokiness of the duck was enhanced throughout the dish. Every bite was a nice bite of smokiness and savoriness.
At $23 per person (which includes tax and 20% gratuity), it was considered inexpensive, and it may contain exotic herbs and spices from around world, in their dishes. Such a bargain, and we were stuffed to the gills afterward. Even with a party of 8, we barely made a dent in the number of dishes they have offer on their menu. So, we’re going to head back in late September, and hope to be able to sample more dishes from their dinner menu.
