Lai Chen (Taiwanese on Miramar)

Has anyone else tried this relatively new Taiwanese place on Miramar? A friend and I had dinner here this past week. The place was packed on a Thursday night with a mostly Chinese/Taiwanese clientele. We tried the stinky tofu, ba wan, three cup chicken, mi fen (stir-fried rice stick noodles), and a-cai (stir-fried vegetable). Of these dishes, the stinky tofu and three cup chicken were probably the highlights, though nothing knocked our socks off. The ba wan was overly sweet, and the mi-fen was bland. With few Taiwanese options in SD, though, we'd love to give it another try. Anyone have any favorite dishes here? My friend mentioned that they make their own Chinese sausages, so that might be worth a revisit.
