When most people go out to eat, they like to choose a place that is not only delicious, but also affordable. The new Shanghai Tea Bistro certainly fits the bill. The owners and hostess Lu Lu have traveled all kinds of placed and dined in every type of restaurant imaginable. Now they are back in Taipei to share an array of delicious Cantonese cuisine. --By Joan Chang, translated by Ann Lee, photos by Andy Lin
A. The colorful Shitoupo Fried Rice (事頭婆炒飯, NT$130) is Lu Lu's personal favorite; it's a nice combination of stir-fried veggies and meat. Another recommended dish is the generously-portioned. Sad Soul Rice (黯然消魂飯NT$100). Made with honey barbecue pork and rice, it's sure to warm you up and keep you full. The Lunch Ham & Egg Noodles (午餐肉煎蛋麵NT$100), a common table dish in Hong Kong, is made with imported ingredients from China, which adds to the authenticity.
B. Other great choices here are the Fried Chicken Wings (NT$70/120, a la carte), buttery Boluo Bread (菠蘿油NT$45/90 a la carte), and the Pork Chop Bun (NT$65/100, a la carte). If you're looking for a nice set meal, try the Salty Beef & Egg Sandwich (NT$60 a la carte, NT$100 set meal), made with sauteed beef and egg yolks.
