Beef Roll – Jim’s Taiwanese Cuisine
$4.95 for this “snack” — I thought it’d be considered an appetizer, never saw a snack section on a menu. 4 pieces is really not all that much to share, and the pieces are cut so large that they’re nowhere near bite-sized. Overall, as one whole piece, it’s pretty small. Still, it’s alright, tastes like there’s a lot of oyster sauce (or maybe Hoisin sauce?).
Minced Pork with Noodle, $7.95
I don’t really understand why this is considered a “noodle soup,” especially since there’s really no soup. It seemed so popular on Yelp that I decided to try it, and I liked it. Didn’t care for the tofu because it was so dry, but otherwise, the sauce and noodle are good. Not enough for sharing though.
TW Style Stir Fried Rice Noodle, $9.95
I didn’t care for this at all. It’s a lot of noodle, but it’s oily and lacks anything that makes it stand out. The flavor is meh, the texture isn’t impressive, and the presentation is just a mountain of noodles.
This place used to be Liang’s Kitchen, and it seems like not much has changed. The menu items are very similar, if not the same. It bugs me that some of the menu items don’t fit the category they’ve been assigned to (like the Minced Pork with Noodle), and snacks + appetizers should just be one category to skip the confusion. The layout is the same. The logo went from a grandma to a cartoon boy, which looks kinda odd – not quite fitting for this place.
