12:30pm – Cindy’s Kitchen, Hacienda Heights
After church in the morning at http://www.ambassadorchurch.org/ we continued our asian food streak. This is Ben’s hole in the wall taiwanese specialty and it was quite well hidden. Located between a 24 hour convenience store and a mixed martial arts center, i’m sure hacienda heights locals have driven by this place countless times.
2:00 pm – Class 302
There is now a distinction between “shaved ice” and “shaved snow”. Very fortunate to have skipped over ice and moved directly into snow fandom. From what I gather it’s frozen yogurt-ish shaved into ribbons. Thus instead of getting just shaved water…it’s shaved sugar water. Sounds pretty negligible but the difference is stunning.
Hats off to Class 302’s decor which really gives the school room vibe. Meals are served in tin boxes and the seats and tables are rickety school desks and chairs. Big Jon reached his hand inside his desk’s cubby and pulled out an old taiwanese student hand book. Had all the Bo Po Mo Fo’s and everything.
The wait can be quite long ~40 minutes. One xue hua bing’s should be able to satisfy 2 people. This really was a surprisingly great dessert. Heard there’s a similar (possibly) related chain in Irvine called ‘the Balcony’…should check that out sometime. At $6-7 per bowl, this was a great eat and a great deal!
Thank you to everyone who made this weekend possible and to everyone who came out and made it a blast!
