Average proclaimed Taiwan fare

Lunch settled simply at Eat @ Taipei today - the branch at Chinatown Point. I have been to this Taiwanese restaurant at least thrice before - its exterior flanked by colorful neon-lit tiles announcing its presence boldly.

The interior is dimly lit but spacious, and the service staff strive to provide amicable service. The food here is not fantastic overall, though there are a couple of items worth a shot or two.

I had the Herbal (Dang Gui) Duck Soup Vermicelli (SGD$10.50), more commonly known as "mee sua". The soup looked thick but the taste of the "dang gui" herb was rather weak, or maybe I am used to having the homecooked one thicker / richer in flavor. The duck was rather tender, but disappointingly the "mee sua" literally "bee hoon", coarse and thick.

Next, the Coffin Toast (SGD$10.50) with seafood soup - prawns, squids, etc. I'd say that the ingredients were rather generous, and the toast was rather crispy. The creamy soup was light in taste - lacking in the sweetness of the seafood it encompasses, but delightful enough.

We shared a Crispy Fried Chicken Chop (SGD$8.90) - that was not crispy or tender at all. Texture and flavor was rather lackluster - to be frank, a piece of $4.90 fried chicken chop from those local Shilin stalls at shopping mall basements taste better.

too pricy

We had their hotpot which was on their recommendation table. Two small vegetable hotpot cost 33 in total. I bet the raw food only worth below 10. Highly overpriced. Food like this can be cooked at home easily. Won't dine here again.

cheap standard

I order the braised pork rice and beef noodle but I was utterly disappointed to the food as the meat were dry and tough and the soup was so blend..totally incomparable to what I had in Taiwan..in addition service was poor too

Doesn't make sense to spend a single cent in this restaurant

Second and last visit, was there both time just for quick meal and thanks to the worse-than-hawker-quality-food and horrendous service during the second visit made me realize it doesn't make sense to spend a single cent in this place.

The staff came to clear my table and put used tissue into my food
