“I was really craving Taiwanese food and I was worried I wouldn't be able to find good Taiwanese food. I had the bento box, oyster pancake, and the sticky rice roll. It was soooooo good. The bento box has fried pork and minced pork over rice with a tea egg and pickled radishes. I'm happy the white rice wasn't saturated with sauce because I like to taste the distinction between the flavors.

The oyster pancake does seem to use a different veggie, but I actually like this kind because it has a strong flavor to it. I don't know the actual name but my mom always told me it's the "beat wife" veggie because when you cook it, the veggies shrink, causing the husband to think the wife is holding out on him, thus beating her. I like that story.

The sticky rice roll is purple because they've mixed some kind of dark purple rice with the white rice. It's different, but the taste is still good.”
