Delicious Taiwanese Fried Chicken Leg Over Rice, at Teariffic Cafe in Chinatown

As far as Asian lunch bowls go, the Taiwanese chicken leg over rice is one of my favorite quick eats dishes, and Teariffic Cafe in Chinatown does a yummy version of this dish.  I like Teariffic Cafe since it offers a pretty good variety of items such as beverages like hot teas/bubble teas/smoothies, desserts like toast with condensed milk, as well as a variety of noodle and rice bowls.  Ambience-wise, the place is also not a bad spot for a lunch/dinner date if you are in the Chinatown area.  The decor is nothing fancy, but is one of the better looking (and cleaner!) spots in Ctown.

When I went with my girlfriend we were able to try some of their rice dishes.  What makes their rice bowls Taiwanese is the addition of the accompaniments: a hard boiled egg, pickled mustard greens, and a zesty meat sauce.  Teariffic's version was delish with the chicken hot and freshly fried.

My girlfriend ordered the eel over rice and she also thoroughly enjoyed her dish.
As you can see the eel is served with the same accompaniments.  

To start we also grabbed a small combo app to split, which consisted of some spring rolls and dumplings, among other items.  They also have a lot of other small apps (what they call snacks) to chose from, ranging from $2 to $4.
