Losing the love for JoJo Tai Pei

i must admit that i was a bit of a fan of JoJo the first couple of times i went. but the last two occasions The Kid and i dined at JoJo left us wishing we had gone to Taiwan Cafe.

on our last visit (6/27) we started with the pig ears which were loaded with garlic but a bit too hard and crunchy. the mini steamed buns were decent but the wrappers tore way too easily losing most of the soup.

moving on to the beef with longhorn peppers which we love at TC but JoJo's preparation lacked a depth of flavor and heat.

next we tried the three cups cuttlefish and while the cuttlefish was properly tender the sauce was not only muddy tasting but appeared to have actual mud in it, not good at all.

the only thing we really liked were the tofu skin rolls and even on those the wrappers fell off the filling too easily.

we'll probably give it another shot, but not any time soon
