If you do go there for dessert or even a quick snack, you MUST order the toast with condensed milk and butter. As simple as that sounds, the combination works really really well and if you ordered one to share, you will want to order another one for yourself.
One of the savory dishes ordered was the Taiwanese hors d'oeuvres sampler with fried shrimp balls, boiled tea eggs, and glazed chicken wings.
My go-to drink when I'm there is the black tea with milk (served hot). It's a classic and you can't go wrong with it! They also serve a variety of fruity drinks and milkshakes.
