Ximending specialises in authentic Taiwanese favourites. They serve Taiwanese home style dishes such as fried oysters with vegetables, radish and egg pancake and san bei chicken with basil.
After great holidays in Taiwan and back to reality, I MISS TAIWANESE FOOD!!! I go crazy if there’s another related to Taiwanese cuisine. This place serves some good Taiwanese cuisine. You really have to order the fried pig intestine, there’s no weird smell to this intestine and makes will asking for more. There’s also fried mian xian (rice vermicelli) and of course other kind of common Taiwanese cuisine such as braised pork rice and oyster mian xian. We didn’t order the norm dishes, in this second visit, I have ordered fried tofu, stir fried mixed vegetable and noodle soup. All has great taste, and their service is great too. Went back multiple times after this visit with other friends.
Xi Men Ding; a restaurant located in Vivo City that serve authentic Taiwanese home style dishes. I was there on a Saturday evening for dinner, the place is not packed, so I easily got a seat. The service staff there were pretty prompt and helpful. My friends and I ordered a couple of dishes (refer to the photo). Personally think the food taste quite good, but the pricing of the food is a little over expensive if you compare them to eating the real authentic food in Taiwan!
Sep 13, 2014, we decided to have dinner our dinner with my friends at Ximending...the food is not bad but comes with very HORRIBLE service. A lady manager named Limin attitude is so bad and should not be placed as restaurant manager/supervisor. As we are neither singaporean nor taiwanese, we are not familiar with some dessert which is named in chinese. We would like to order our dish based on the number stated but Limin insisted that we cannt order by the number but need to speak out the dish name with her moody tone. Is this what we should expect from a restaurant that cost almost sgd50/person? I came back home and start researching the restaurant feedback and found that this lady has been complained in many websites and some even have management acknowledgement since 2013 but today she is still there...this restaurant is not popular and having negative feedback all over the place. If management does not take serious action, you may want to consider your business continuity unless you are not-for-profit organization!!!
