A. The all-you-can-eat menu (NT$399) boasts about 40 items. Some include: Royal Pork Intestines, Braised Crab & Tofu in Clay Pot, Minced Shrimp with Lettuce, Fried Beef with Leeks, Fresh Shrimp, and many well-known, traditional Cantonese snacks. Along with this selection every patron also receives a free bowl of Braised Shark's Fin with Shredded Chicken Soup.
B. For a la carte dishes, Chef Lee recommends their Signature Sichuan-style Beef Strips (NT$280), which are made with juicy U.S. beef and spices like baidoukou (白豆蔻), Chinese red pepper, cinnamon, and dried chili peppers. Another dish, Braised Shark's Fin with Chicken in Casserole (NT$1,800, serves 12) is cooked on low heat for six hours, making it tender and tasty.
