Fun Taipei Teacafe SS2
Having the luxury to enjoy global network of fiber optic backbones with failsafe access points and redundant router protocols, have got us having greater demands in lifestyle. The demand for food and the innovative ideas in f&b business are proportionaly growing with the rate of consumer’s demand. Fun Taipei Tea Cafe promises authentic Taiwan streetfood, bringing Taiwan close to you here. Taiwan has always been very well known for their many choices of street food. The snacks and street food in Taiwanare often being consumed as main servings thus resulting in huge portions. Customized to the needs and demands of the locals, this restaurant comes up with a lot of set meals which are moderately affordable. Not overpriced but not cheap either. The menu doesn’t look temptingly interesting, so I only manage to order several out of the many.
The noodle has got great texture and according to the owner, there are all handmade. The minced pork and springkled spring onion was great combination to the noodle.
Here, the owner is very careful with the free soup. I am lucky to have being served the lotus root soup.
However, the tofu were not impressive. Somewhat ordinaryand palatable.
Every cuisine would have a signature dish as the benchmark to determine the standard of the restaurant. For Taiwan street food, you can’t possibly stray far from the oyster mee suah. Thus, the next order which inevitably follows is the oyster mee suah set.
There is a lot of minced raw garlic in it along with fried oyster and chili. The specialty of the oyster mee suah here would be the fried oyster, rather than fresh raw oysters which are normally stirred into hot boiling mee suah before being served in a bowl. You may wonder why they fry the oyster instead of serving them raw. I had the same queries. Nevertheless, it’s still good.
The oysters were amazingly huge and fresh. And the fact that it was fried, I somehow felt so much more relief to consume safely without having the thought of food poisoning from the oysters.
The coatings over the fried oysters are of the similar flour of spice and herbs of the deep fried pork chop. Pork chop lacks spices on the crisp. Resulting it to be rather dull in taste. But amazingly crispy texture.
Next is the dumpling. They serve steam or fried dumpling. Both to go with ginger strips soaked in black vinegar. I have ordered fried just because I was in the mood for fried food. It wasn’t exactly fried thou. More like grilled.
First bite was really dull. But dipped in vinegar and a bit of ginger, it kind of really bring out the aroma of minced pork in the dumpling. In whole, the texture was fine. Not too hard and moderately succulent. So it was great and enjoyable.
Last but not least, pearl tea. Something so famously originated from Taiwan. I must say, bubble pearl tea is somewhat a fantastic creation. They gone with so many adjective flavours and miraculously they are all attractive in its own way. So, I must order one. I went with honey dew flavour. Which wasn’t any what so much more awesome than what is available anywhere else. Still, it was good. Just not great.
And finally, I must also remind readers that they serve quality tea leaves here. Because they ran out of Jasmine green tea. I went with Oo long and discovered that they serve quality tea leaves. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
The restaurant has a very cosy ambient, and I see students and youngsters with their lap tops browsing and surfing the internet.Fun Taipei Teacafe SS2 is located at 9, Jalan SS2/64, 47300 Petaling Jaya. Tel: 03-78772555
