Green Island (9556 Las Tunas Drive, Temple City) is a reliable, fast, and child-friendly Chinese cafe with some Malaysian and Singaporean touches.
We come here regularly with our niece, and she is never the only child there.
Roti canai ($2.99).
Hard to mess up but still not nearly as good as roti canai should be.
Scrambled egg with dried turnip ($2.99).
A simple traditional Chinese comfort food favorite.
Squid with pepper salt ($6.99).
Can't go wrong with pepper salt dishes.
Chicken wings with pepper salt ($6.99).
More pepper salt!
Bean curd with pepper salt and X.O. sauce ($6.99).
Yeah, we really love pepper salt.
Fried thick noodles Shanghai-style ($6.99).
Chewy. Happy. Yay.
Black pork belly with bok choy in hot pot ($7.99).
All the bok choy makes it good for you.
Pan-fried radish patties ($2.99).
There's always room for luo buo gao.
Sizzling eel fried rice ($8.99).
You must get at least one sizzling rice dish here!
Spareribs in black bean sauce with rice hot pot ($6.75).
Like home in a bowl.
Sweet fried crepe ($4.25).
Sadly, dessert is not so great at Green Island.
You're better off ending with some frozen yogurt a few doors down.
