Taipan Bakery

1033 Baldwin Ave.
Arcadia, CA 91007
Taipan is one of those Chinese restaurants that you could walk by 100 times without slowing down ? a nice, clean-lined cafAA(c) plopped down among the convenience stores and fast-food outlets in an Arcadia mini-mall. I had been expecting, you know, mall food: General Tso?s chicken and sweet ?n? sour pork. But Taipan is a serious if casual Hong Kong?style restaurant, with congee in the morning and bargain-priced lunches, a wide range of clay-pot dishes and a decent selection of seafood, plenty of vegetarian dishes, great noodles, steamed pork flavored with fresh anchovies, and enough exotic innards to fill a small edition of Gray?s Anatomy.
