Another great meal at Taiwan Cafe

Dave M.P. | Nov 30, 2001 08:42 PM

Went to Taiwan Cafe tonite with 5 friends. We didn't try too much that hasn't been talked about, but I wanted to reiterate some suggestions.

The six of us shared:

Seaweed with garlic appetizer, which was fantastic. Best seaweed I have ever had (although I haven't had very much)

Steamed pork buns, which were also delicious and very juicy, they practically exploded on the plate.

Sauteed Eggplant w/ Basil: Everyone was right. This is the best eggplant I have ever had. All 6 of us loved it, even the ones who are normally not big fans of eggplant. I am a fan, and this was incredible. If you haven't had it yet, go try it!

A noodle soup with pork which was very nice but nothing special in my opinion.

Finally, we had the Seafood in a Clay Pot. This was awesome. See the description in the link below. This was the last dish we had, (5 things for 6 people) but we couldn't even finish it. I did not care for the taro root and thought it might have been better without it, however one of my friends disagreed and proclaimed that taro is his new favorite starch. So there ya go. The broth was great though, as well as the tofu. The people at the table next to us had what I think was the Fermented Tofu w/ Mized vegetables clay pot. It looked really good, has anyone had it?

Our meal was cost 40.10, which is quite a bargain since we all ate well. I had JUST enough room left for a red bean bun at the bakery down the street. YUM
