Good Taiwanese Food

We visited a few good family restaurants last week, with good food at very reasonable prices. A meal there usually costs under C$3.50 per person.

Unlike the deep-fried stinky tofu in Hong Kong, this is cooked in hot-pot.

The last one is called a steak house but really consists of a buffet with 10 restaurants rolled into one: steak, Mongolian grill, sushi, HK style BBQ, hot plate, Taiwanese grill, hot-pot, deep-fried, various cooked cuisine, and desserts. It is more pricy at C$12.25 per person (tax and tip included), but still about half-price compared to Canadian all-you-can-eat buffet restaurants with fewer variety.
