We actually extended our stay in Orlando just to eat at this place for lunch. When we came a little before lunch, every table (all were taken because 3 huge chinese families were eating together. Unfortunately, we had walked in right after them and they had ordered a ton of dishes. If we had known that when we placed our order, we would have to wait over an hour, we probably would’ve just hit the road.
Everything is in Chinese and the owners barely speak English. I thought since my significant other speaks Chinese, that we’d be all set. But noooooo. We got there and he had no idea what to order. There was this one dish that I wanted but Joe didn’t know the name of it and a woman that had ordered before us looked at my picture of the food I wanted and she ordered for us.
Joe said that this is a Taiwanese staple and it was delicious! The tofu def did not smell good but it was great for all the other senses. It was crispy, it was sweet, and it was delicious.
this was my favorite by far, the salt and pepper chicken came with its own dry dip (Joe said it’s a mixture of salt and black pepper). It was super crunchy (almost broke a tooth!) and the chicken flavor was enhanced by the dry dip.
This was our attempt to eat healthy: mapo tofu. Even this dish is one of the well known chinese dishes, this was probably my least favorite. The flavors just didn’t mesh well at all. And the soggy composition was just unpleasant after having so many other crispy and crunchy items.
Joe insisted on this dish. We both agreed it was pretty good and it came with a “Thousand year old egg” and Chinese sausage. The sausage was sooooooooooo good. I thought Joe wasn’t eating it so I reached over and ate half of it in one bite and he said “I was saving that!” Whoops. Anywho, awesome food for a great price, but you need to be able to read the menu cuz it’s in Chinese.
