Nice authentic Taiwanese food.
It looks like there are two different locations, but in actuality,
the original owners sold their location on Royal Oak and moved to Joyce Street.

So the original tasty dishes are located in the Vancouver cafe.
Parking sucks, but the food's still great.

The one on Royal Oak has pass hands a number of times.
None of the owners seems to really get the recipes right.
Business suffered for a while, and one of my friends even got food poisoning
from the chicken. But thankfully, that "no nothing" owner finally left.
They finally have servers who speak English, which makes it easier on
the non-Taiwanese customers when ordering on the phone... namely, me.

There's a few dishes I like.
And if you want to original good version... go to the Joyce Street location... me.


Deep Fried Tempura (actually fried fish cakes)
Pork and Chive Dumplings

Wontun Noodle Soup
Crispy Fried Chicken and Rice
Taiwanese Sausage and Egg Fried Rice
Beef Brisket & Tomato Noodle Soup

Mango Slush with Coconut Jelly (from a powder)
Watermelon Slush with Coconut Jelly (fresh!!)
Coconut Milk Tea


I got the wontun noodle soup at the Royal Oak location,
and they use the yellow egg noodle instead of the white homemade noodles.
Never had it again since. (maybe the new owners wised
