Being the professional Cantonese-style dining expert that he is, Liang Zhen-yeh has been hired as a consultant by many Hong Kong-style restaurants all over Taiwan. Liang knows how to introduce Hong Kong flavors to the Taiwan market and you can see his success by measuring the huge line of people outside Hohomei in the Shida area. --By Joan Chang, translated by Ann Lee
A. Glutinous Rice wrapped in Lotus Leaves (飄香荷葉飯NT$90) comes with dried shrimp, mushrooms and barbecue glutinous rice, served with a secret sauce, ensuring you don't have to wait until Dragon Boat Festival to try something like a zhongzi (glutinous rice dumplings wrapped in bamboo leaves). Hohomei also offers various flavors of a traditional Hong Kong bread, Bo Luo Bao (NT$25). Try it with a chilled slice of butter, or in chocolate or strawberry flavors. Don't forget to order a glass of Rebina (NT$50), for a sweet finish.
B. Cart Noodles (食神車仔麵NT$90-120) come with a choice of three toppings--handmade beef meatballs, pork, or fish balls. Their barbecued meat and chicken wings, cooked on a daily basis, are fresh and tasty to the bone!
