While Taichung is home to thousands of restaurants, finding one that has been around for a long time and stands out for its unique characteristics and quality narrows down the field significantly. Among such places is this authentic Cantonese dim sum eatery, next to Taichung Folklore Park, which is usually packed with diners and emits a steady cloud of steam from its kitchen window.
The Recommended Hainan Chicken (NT$180) is succulent, tender and especially tasty with three classic sauces. Pepper Chicken Claws (NT$180) is savory, spicy dish with crunchy, fragrant, exceptionally good claws. Soft on the outside and crunchy inside, the aromatic Steamed Rice Roll (NT$135) features fresh shrimp, chives and celery bundled in a deep-fried, Vietnamese-style wrap before finally being rolled once more in a soft rice-based skin.
Smooth, creamy, delicate-tasting, daily-made porridges (NT$100-280)–including Pork Liver Porridge, Fish Porridge, and Grilled Meat Porridge–are served in steaming casserole dishes. The enthusiastic owner also offers other reasonably-priced, delicious side dishes, soups, broiled items and dim sum dishes that are equally delicious and reasonably-priced.
