With continuation of travel restriction to Taiwan, fans of Taiwanese cuisine will surely missed and craved for authentic Taiwanese food. Thankfully, there are a couple of Taiwanese cafés and eateries making ways here for these fans.
Apart from Lee’s Taiwanese and Eat 3 Bowls, there is another new found outlet, +886 Bistro offering authentic Taiwanese flavors with a modern twist which I chanced upon.
Needless to say, it is a must to try out the usual suspect dishes. 😉
Using premium Japanese rice with superior sauce sauce coupled with melt in your mouth pork belly and braised for more than 24 hours. Topped with spring onion and sweet & spicy turnips. This is truly heavenly. Cannot go wrong type. 👍
Shredded chicken with a home made blend of scallion oil and sauce. This is another champion dish. Much better than the one served in Lee’s Taiwanese.
Like Scallion Chicken Rice, except served with udon. Something unique and tastes as good too.
Bonito broth with mushrooms and shredded chicken. This is at best so-so and passable. I would prefer it with intestine instead. Not as flavourful as I expected.
One of their signature item, originated from their Founder’s great grandparents, boneless, fried to a crisp with a slight chew. Frankly, I am not too impressed by it as it does not have the crispy texture to it.
For those who prefer their chicken without the honey. It’s nice but not as power as the crispy chicken chop served in Lee’s Taiwanese.
Braised in the same goodness as their braised pork, includes radish, Taiwanese glutinous rice cake, mushroom, meatball and fish roe strip. The Taiwanese version of Oden. This is another power dish. 👍
There are various flavour options for selection. Decided on their original salt & pepper flavour for the first try. This is surprisingly delicious.
Likewise there are various modifiers that you can choose from. I go for the original flavour that do not require additional top-ups. 😉 Well, I still prefer the crispy enoki over fried shitake as I enjoy more on the crispy crunch feel.
A great starter dish to begin with. Simple yet tasty.
Oooh, this is another good crispy starter to begin with too. 🙂
A chewy texture rice cake dish with a unique salty plummy taste. Very Taiwanese indeed. I would say it is quite acquired. It’s either a love or hate type of dish.
You may also try out some of their desserts too.
An interesting dessert, mochi-like texture similar to fried glutinous rice ball with yam paste wrapped with sweet potato paste. Makes a great dessert dish.
Classic creme brûlée with a dollop of yam. Feels like eating orh nee. Interesting and unique dessert.
Served with condensed milk and brown sugar. Definitely another power dessert without a doubt especially for sweet-tooth lovers. Sinfully good. 😋😋😋
Oh mine….this is one of the better boba brown sugar milk tea that I have had for sure! 👍
Overall, quality is there and certainly a new place which you can try out should your next Taiwanese food cravings arises.
