China Tofu in Union City

Han Lukito | May 26, 200207:35 PM

I tried this place again after last week. Again I am quite happy. Although this is not a refined place by any means but it's a great place for a casual meal. The lunch plates menu is posted outside and has english translations. Other than that, pretty much everything else is in Chinese. I asked the cashier and she informed me that it is Taiwanese cuisine.

This time I had the chinese sausage lunch plate which comes with 3 other items. The chinese sausage were the red colored sweet pork sausage. It is larger diameter that what I'm used to. It is not as moist as I like (fatty) but it is still good. The first of the 3 items were spareribs marinated in sweet brown sauce. The meat is tender. Very good. The 2nd of the 3 items was thinly sliced beef "shank" in a "spiced" sauce. This is also excellent. Thin slices but firm. The marinade is also quite tasty with hints of sweetness. The 3rd item was string beans with sliced tofus (very dense tofu) which is also good although nothing spectacular.

My wife got the beef noodle soup. It comes piping hot with lots of beef chunks. The broth has a lot of spices and the color is dark brown. If you have sinus problems, I think this will clear it right away. The noodle is medium sized and flat shaped. I detected a hint of uncooked flour aftertaste. It is only good IMO.

Total spent is $11.00 with tips. The amount of food is huge. If you come here with big apetite - this place will make you FULL and satisfied.

But there are lots more of items to try.
