This is a small place, 御廚房, right off the Liuzhangli MRT station on the Wenshan train line. With no research, we walked in for dinner. I was exhausted from a long day and did not even realize that they are known for their wontons until now. It’s a local place that has seating for maybe 15 people.
Pork and Vegetable Dumplings 鮮肉高麗菜餃：Easily rival if not better than the Dumpling House I went to in Flushing. $60 TWD or $2 USD.
Shredded Pork and Pickled Vegetable Soup with Noodles 榨菜肉絲湯麵: This is my daughter’s favorite noodle dish in Taiwan. She gave it a thumbs up. The broth was packed with flavors from the pickled vegetables and the pork. Very well executed. $60 TWD or $2 USD.
Today’s Vegetable 燙青菜: Blanched and sautéed with a little Taiwanese Bolognese sauce. This is the reasons why I never liked a cold salad nor can I ever be a vegetarian. Vegetables are so much better when sautéed with a little meat sauce.
Total Bill: $150 TWD or approximately $5 USD.
Who wouldn’t come back to a place like this? High quality food that is all about substance and value. They even have the AC running! Next time, I will order the wonton.
This experience took place at
This is right next to the Taiwanese crepe place.
