Being here a few times with my wife and We enjoyed the fodd everytime. What we need is coming here with more people so that we can try a variety of things at the same time.

Came back on a Thursday evening around 6:30. Business was quite slow because I counted no more than 20 customers while we were there. I am sure that their weekends are good otherwise they can’t stay open for so many years. Chinese restaurant business on Rockville Pike is cut throat, especially the ones catering to Chinese people.

New Chinese restaurants come and go in this area. If it wants to stay in business after 2 or 3 years must offer something special.

Taipei Cafe is one of them.

The service was very fast probably because there weren’t too many customers. We got all our food within 8 minutes.

As usual, we ordered too many.

滷肉飯不夠油。既然要吃就不要怕。

豆腐乾切的肥了一點。味道不錯。炒的剛剛好。韭黃味道還不賴。下次可以再點。

絲瓜稍微老了點。

跟台灣夜市的沒得比的。

image

臭豆腐。還算可以。泡菜和汁可以甜一點。

比度小月的差一大截。需要改進。

只能選三樣。貴的不得了。要了我們五塊半。不值得。別叫。

This cozy Cafe is hidden in a corner of the Norstrom Department store at Tysons Shopping Center in Northern Virginia. You can Find it on the first floor near ladys’ shoes section.

We have been to this Cafe for years and like it very much. It offers cafeteria style service, relaxing atmosphere, attentive service, house wines, high quality coffee, beautiful desserts and excellent food. Its prices are comprarable to those at other restaurants in the Tysons area. A reasonable tip is still expected though. I wish it opens till the mall closes at 9:30  though.
