  • good shit.
  • Get the xiaolongbao. They're delicious soup-filled pork dumplings.
  • The xiaolongbao soup dumplings are massive. More like dalongbao!
  • The Fried Porkchop Over Rice is a good deal. Comes with white rice, vegetables and a whole tea egg.
  • Stinky tofu!
  • The braised eggplant with basil is one of my favorite dishes at any restaurant. Give it a try! Much much better than the PF Changs knock-off
  • Ask for a Chinese menu; if you do not read Chinese make a random pick based on the characters that look cool; most likely going to be better than the americanized selection
  • Ordered the Tilapia lunch special for $7 and got a whole fish!
  • These were some of the best pork soup dumplings I've ever had AND they come in orders of 7
  • #2 House special fried pork chop on rice, #5 Thick bacon-cut braised pork, Entree #44 Spicy Salt&Pepper chicken w/basil.
  • Card minimum of $20
  • Whoever recommended the Stinky Tofu is a troll. Maybe this is an acquired taste, but it literally tasted like a diaper. They wouldn't take it off my check either. Everything else was great.
  • Best xiaolongbao!
  • DO NOT come here. It's way overrated. The service is absolutely awful !
  • Get the ma po tofu! Also no longer cash only, they take cards (:
  • You can "Like" Taiwan Cafe on Facebook too for news and insider tips.
  • Scallion pancakes are fluffy, crispy, and downright amazing here. The waitresses are very friendly.
  • Rice porriage is not your typical thick rice soup. It is basically, rice with broth. so just FYI
  • My top menu picks: Oyster pancake, house special pork chop over rice, tomato & egg w/ beef, "hollow heart" veggies (cong xin cai), soup dumplings.
  • Cash only. Bring cash! Luckily not that expensive
