2002 BEST Chinese Restaurant

Taiwan Café

Taiwan Café’s light-as-a-feather handmade pan-fried dumplings, delicious tilapia braised with scallions and spicy bean curd, or garlicky sautéed watercress are a welcome change from the heavy-handed dishes found at many joints in Chinatown. And they’re only a few of the 80 items on the diverse menu. Diners with a bold streak can even join the regulars sampling duck tongue with basil, which (once you get past the texture) is an authentic treat. Be sure to stop at the ATM first: Taiwan Café is cash only.
