Good food Tiny Place

Posted on 06 / 28 / 2012

Had read about this place on HappyCow and ate here in June 2012. Here's my QQ Kitchen review.

Was here during lunch hour, June 2012. It's tiny little place tucked in a shopping plaza between a little Subway fast food and another shop. As soon as you walk in, you can see the open kitchen to the right. Help yourself to a booth, and the waitress comes to greet you.

For a small place, the menu is quite extensive: lots of Taiwanese food, snacks, drinks, and desserts. I lived in Taiwan for the first decade of my life, so seeing the menu gave me a sense of familiarity, and I wanted to try everything on the menu!

I got a green tea with boba (little black chewy tapicoa balls) and asked to leave out the "milk" part. The owner told me that the boba teas contain a non-dairy creamer. If you don't want that you have to specify. It was very good on a hot summer day.

I also got an order of pan-fried dumpling (also known as gyoza) that they make themselves and also sells frozen in bulk for take home. The dumplings were filled with greens, tiny firm tofu cubes, and slice of mushroom. A serving came with 8 perfect little pieces, crispy and brown on the bottom, soft and slight chewy on top. Yummy.

Inexpensive prices and authentic tasting Taiwanese cuisine. Can't wait to return for the "stinky tofu" with kimchi.
