Taiwan Cafe Eggplant

Went to Taiwan Cafe tonight, we had the eggplant w/ basil as one of our dishes. I noticed no one has mentioned this dish (or TC) recently, so I thought I'd mention it again so we all remember (although I doubt anyone has forgotten). It's still SOOOOO good.

we also had veggie dumplings, I wasn't too impressed, I thought they were somewhat bland. The pork w/ tofu and mustard greens was delicious, very healthy tasting and not the slightest bit greasy.

    So far the only complaint I have heard or read against the basil eggplant was from someone (or their dining partner) not liking basil. The legend continues...

      It was me. I don't dislike basil, just felt it overpowered the eggplant in that dish. Coincidentally, I was just thinking about getting the spicy eggplant w/ rice from my cheap standby, the Food Wall in JP.
