For stir-fry dishes, there's a plainly delicious plate of sautéed creamy cabbage in a delicate sauce with dried mini shrimp and a few chiles, or flap-ridged pieces of firm and meaty squid cooked with Chinese vegetables in a light sweet-and-sour sauce.

And for those who may have exhausted the menu's offerings or simply want to take the Henry's Taiwan road less traveled, there is a specials board. A listing of about six items that change every three months, there may be dishes such as crispy basil chicken, minced pork rice, and sweet and sour spare ribs.

When I ask Kuo whether Henry's will get a liquor license, he simply gestures to the restaurant's neighbor, a drive-through liquor store next door.

Main dishes, like the very good stir-fry squid with Chinese vegetables, are served in portion sizes that result in leftovers.

"Liquor licenses are expensive," he says. "It seems pretty easy to do a BYOB."

And just what wine pairs best with stinky tofu? Ku says he likes Long Shadows Poet's Leap Botrytis Riesling, a dessert wine from Washington's Columbia Valley.

"The tofu has a fermented, yeasty taste, like wine. The dessert wine is sweet. Together, they balance each other."

Took my husband to Henry's because I see it when I leave LA fitness and saw a blurb on New Times website. The menu is a bit more authentic Asian, I got 3 cup chicken which was good except it was on the bone. My other half got Kung Pao chicken which was really good. The staff was very attentive and the prices are budget friendly.
