Finally, a traditionally Taiwanese cheap eats place that lives up to its reputation. Recommended by a Taiwanese friend, A&J is THE place for beef noodle soup in Orange County. Try their dumplings as well. Solid throughout.

Place to be for Taiwanese comfort food. So much to try. Fried pork chop w/ noodles, yum. A unique but simple dish of tofu & thousand year old egg was delicious! Another simple & delicious food is the chili oil wonton!

A&J has delicious food, small dishes that are exquisitely yummy!! It is cash only, but that is a small inconvenience when everything is so delicious. Decor is nothing to applaud, but the waiters were attentive and prompt. It is in a hung mall and parking...More
