Mei’s Kitchen

As I generate this I’m savoring my leftovers from Mei’s Kitchen, a Chinese restaurant on the east aspect of town, and the foods is just as tasty as it was final evening.

I’m specifically liking the Taiwanese sticky rice, which I purchased just to tick off Xi Jinping.

Meis rice

The dish was geared up in the standard way with glutinous rice, mushrooms and dried shrimp furthermore fine bits of pork and a hefty mix of soy sauce for an umami kick.

Meis bao

I did not really require the gua bao that I also obtained as an appetizer chunk but I was keen to check out it. Also a regular Taiwanese model, it featured braised pork tummy embellished with pickled mustard greens, all in the common puffy taco-like steamed bun.

Meis beef

Less than the banner of Noodle dishes ended up two equivalent offerings: Beef Noodle Soup and Spicy Beef Noodle (No Soup). No soup for me. The small strips of beef were laid out more than the dry wheat noodles, flanked with julienned cucumber and carrots. The spiciness will come from an oil primarily based sauce created with Sichuan peppercorns, which leave that telltale tingle on the tongue. Include sparingly – this things is like a Hellfire missile immediate to your tastebuds (just to retain with our topic of global present-day activities).

Meis tofu

I also purchased the General Tso tofu bento box, not for the reason that I’m a certain supporter of that common (and rather Americanized) dish but due to the fact I was intrigued that China’s equivalent of Colonel Sanders had gone vegetarian. The plant-primarily based variation didn’t considerably resemble the Common Tso’s located in most American Chinese restaurants – considerably less breading and not as a lot sugary sweet coating. But I preferred it with the plain white rice. The bento box also includes steamed broccoli and carrots egg fall soup with refreshing kernels of corn thrown in and an egg roll. The latter objects was the sole issue from Mei’s I did not treatment for it was soggy and experienced minor filling. 

And by the way, the portions are generous and the price ranges very fair. That bento box was $12.95. Some spots would demand that just for the egg fall soup these times.
