So, how do you know it's really Taiwanese? Because on the weekends, you can order a brunch meal of carbs and soy. What is that, you ask? Isn't that just tofu and rice? No. Authentic Taiwanese breakfast often consists of flour, sesame seeds, oil, soy milk, sugar and salt. It is magically mixed together to have a sesame "flat bread" that can be "unfolded" to fill with a stick of fried flour dough that looks like a crueller but is savory. Top it off with some delicious piping hot soy milk in a large bowl that contains about 1 quart of liquid sweetened homemade deliciousness, and you're good. Meal complete.
Ok, but you want more than just traditional breakfast? You're in luck, because this place delivers. They will entice you with items like spicy cucumbers, seaweed knots, boiled peanuts and the hot tea on your table. Then you will move into the next round of dishes like vegan noodle soup, vegan rice noodles with vegetables, fresh Chinese greens sautéed perfectly, green beans, spicy tofu and plenty of rice to pair with everything.
Oh, thank you Evergreen - this place is delicious. The portions are good. The prices are fair. The service is a family affair, so they work well in various roles, cooking up the food and taking your order, clearing your table and wrapping up food. The food is cooked quickly, brought to you hot and tasty.
However, just be aware that not all mock meat is vegan. Also, most tofu dishes have the tofu deep fried. Ask if you are concerned.
Will be back!!!!! Food is top notch, and service is great.Pros: Traditional Taiwanese breakfast/ brunch, Traditional Asian veggies, Vegan clearly marked
