This nice chinese restaurant with mediterranean style interior was actually sever kinda Hakka and Shanghai cuisine. I was taken to this restaurant because I lived in the district for a wee while and my dear friend said this is one of the very popular restaurant in the area. Reservation is a must for this restaurant I remembered that we tried to have dinner/lunch there for quite a few times but it was full house.
The location of the restaurant was a bit hard to find as it was secretly located in the residential area. However, a precious germs worth some work, isn’t it.
Since it was just the 3 of us, we choose 2 appetizers. The first one was minced pork stuffed in green pepper (TWD $200), the green pepper wasn’t as spicy as I had imagined and the minced stuffed inside was still tender. It was really good and I couldn’t help it but had one after one. The Braised silver carp with spring onion was a bit dry in the inside but still good, couldn’t compare to the one I had in Shanghai.
The signature tofu(TWD $150) was a blast, inside the rough jacket was the smooth egg tofu hidden inside, this dish was a must to go with their veggie rice here. I think I can do with just the tofu and the rice 🙂
The signature pork (TWD $350) was unbelievable good, nothing fancy but you could tasted what a piece of pork should taste like. Back to the original is always better than overload with MSG and seasoning. The tenderness and juiciness of the slice of pork was unstoppable.
I did find the stir fried cabbage (TWD $250) a little bit too greasy, but that’s what you get when you eat out, so no complaints.
Last dish was the Hakka stir-fry (small TWD$ 250, large TWD$500). It was my first time having this dish and heads down thumbs up. A strong aroma stir fry dish with pork strips, dried bean curd, squid and celery. I was told that the original version doesn’t have celery but adding it in did the trick.
To wrap up, we had the honey glazed Taro since I am not a big fan of taro I had a piece to try. It wasn’t overly sweet and tasted really good kinda like taro ice-cream.
A yummylicious lunch with a good friend and her mom what else do you ask for 🙂
