Delicious pot stickers

After moving to their new location, they stopped selling their pan-fried dumplings. 😭 But they do still have boiled dumplings. They were also giving away a free orange to each customer on Lantern Festival. I’m not sure if it was just for the holiday or if they just had a batch of oranges they needed to get rid of, but it was a sweet gesture either way.

This little restaurant is run by an elderly couple who tag-team the whole process. The wife was doing the bulk of the cooking and order-taking, while the husband was making their signature pot stickers on an oversized griddle near the entrance and dishing out the orders. I asked the husband if any of the menu items had dairy or eggs, and he replied that anything they make themselves is vegan, but they cannot guarantee the fake meats’ contents that they buy from elsewhere. (Those are along the wall for the bento boxes.) So I steered clear of those and went with their handmade ramen (NT$40), crispy bawan (NT$40), boiled seasonal veggies (NT$30, lettuce at the end of October), and a small order of pot stickers (NT$35 for seven). What a filling dinner for under US$5! It felt luxurious. You do need to get your own utensils and then bus your table, but hey, I’m all about cutting out service fees. I'll definitely be back for their pot stickers!

Note: They'll be moving across the street in early 2020. The last day they'll be operating on Limin Rd is December 31, 2019.

Pros: mostly vegan, freshly fried pot stickers, affordable

Cons: fake meats might not be vegan
