Formosa Asian Cuisine (Blue Bell)

Formosa is located in the former Pho Thai Nam space in the shopping center on 202 (north of Township Line, south of Skippack Pike) with Pudges, Pepperidge Farm Outlet, etc.

We have had takeout twice and eaten in five times and have found the quality of the food to be consistently very good to excellent. We tend to order the more typical Americanized dishes and find the found to be fresh and not oily. The value is excellent, good size portions for fair prices (noodle dishes around $10, other dishes around $12). We have tried the following (most more than once):

General Tsao's Chicken - battered in house, always tastes fresh, sauce does not gel
Chicken Mei Fun - thin round noodles with chicken and vegetables, light and tasty

Shrimp with Lobster Sauce - sauce is a bit bland (but generous) with at least 10 large shrimp
Kung Pao Chicken - cubed chicken with vegetables, a bit of spice
Moo Shu Beef - excellent blend of beef and chinese cabbage, not runny or gummy
Beef with Asparagus - good quality beef (not cheap beef processed with corn starch), crisp asparagus

You get the idea. Good basic Chinese. We have not tried any of the more "up scale" choices on the large menu and specials board. Recommended. Worth trying and supporting. This is our go to place when we don't feel like cooking. We order three dishes ($40 with tip/tax) and have more than enough left over for lunch for the two of us. We like it better than Golden Sea and Lai Lai.
