Pine and Crane benefits from several things. For one, its Sunset Junction location couldn’t be better located if it tried. Secondly, the service is quick and the order-at-the-counter setup will get you in and out in a half hour if you want. But most importantly, this modern Taiwanese/Chinese spot serves food that’s delicious and affordable.
