Restaurant Details

This Edgewater spot serves Mandarin and Taiwanese at reasonable prices. The room is simple but clean and often fairly empty, though it's certainly not due to the quality of the food. The Mandarin half of the menu includes some typical dishes like moo shu pork, chicken, or vegetables, an excellent crispy duck marinated in aromatic spices then deep-fried, and shrimp with pea pods and water chestnuts. It’s the Taiwanese dishes that really wake up the taste buds -- salted jellyfish (unusually chewy), stir-fried squid, clams baked with sweet basil, and a nice variety of noodle dishes like crab, shrimp, and scallops with soft fried egg noodles and pork-and-fish-ball soup with wide rice noodles, bamboo shoots, and black mushrooms. Service can be slow, but it’s always friendly.
