Taiwanese cuisine! Love the concept of the Taiwanese sausages with different kinds of topping to enhance it and label them Fusion Taiwanese food!
sausage with Garlic
Sausages with peanut butter
Beef noodle soup
Green onion pancake
The only thing that was a disappointment was the Oyster Pancake. Barely any oysters and it was just soggy.. yeah, soggy with the green veggie inside..
P.s.- They get busy, so you might have to put your name down and wait a bit.

Solid Taiwanese food, good sausages and shaved ice. Be advised that the seating outside is first come first serve and when you put your name on the wait list it's actually for inside seating. Weird, I know.

Taiwanese food in LA is decent, but cannot quite compare to the actual thing in Taiwan. However, Sinbala is the closest to the true Taiwanese flavors that I can find. The sausages come with slices of garlic on top, which is traditional Taiwanese, the ba-wan (meat ball in a gelatinous wrap) has a good Taiwanese ketchip sauce, and the popcorn chicken with basil is good too (though American chicken lacks the tenderness of Taiwanese chicken). Although the wait might be long (try to get there when they open or after 1PM for lunch), the food comes out in just a few minutes after you order.
