Oh my gosh! This place is amazing. My friends and I happened upon it the other night. The food was amazing, reasonably priced and there were cute little games available to play at your table. The staff were so friendly that they even gave us free food! I am definitely coming back!
We tried their 招牌卤肉饭 (signature minced pork rice) and 鹹酥雞 (popcorn chicken).
The popcorn chicken was really crispy on the outside and moist and juicy on the inside. Compared to many popcorn chicken which is usually dry on the inside, this popcorn chicken was really juicy and yummy! The dish also came with what I think is their own-made dipping sauce, which resembles part sweet chili sauce and part mayo.
The signature minced pork rice. Oh gosh. They were not stingy with their gravy/sauce or their ingredients. The whole bowl was just packed with heaps of ingredients comprising of a sunny side up fried egg, sliced sausages, minced meat, preserved vegetables, half a sotong ball and coriander.
The rice, that is soaked with flavour, was so inviting. There was so much ingredients in that bowl that it is almost impossible to have a spoonful of nothing but plain rice. Everything in that bowl was made with love, that caresses you from the inside with every spoonful. In fact, so much love that you can almost feel the warmth glowing from within as you take every mouthful.
The eatery is a small little shop, but you’ll feel at home once you are in there. Maybe it’s the yellow lighting, maybe it’s the mandarin songs that they play through the speakers; but it’s definitely a nice place to bring yourself out of Australia into a little shop in Taipei and enjoy some me-time or cozy time with a group of friends.
And oh, please bring cash because they do nit accept cards. Otherwise, they accept payment via bank transfers as well.
Their food and drinks are very much like the food I had back home in Taiwan. Even better. The staff is very friendly with good customer service.
During Victoria lockdown, My Mental health has been relieved by having their yummy dishes, like a comfort food. The best Taiwanese restaurant in southern Region of Melbourne. Highly recommend.
This place definitely gets a yes from me! While my friend warned me that he wasn't overly pleased with his meal here, I was pleasantly surprised by the quality and quantity of the food that I got.
The sweet potato fries and fried chicken were not too oily, and were delightfully crispy. The congee with pork floss was of a lovely consistency, and was a hearty and filling meal. Couldn't fault the braised minced pork rice and egg pancakes with Taiwanese sausages, both rich and bold in flavours.
Undeniably a great meal, and I wouldn't hesitate to order from here again.
