MAY GARDEN is a Chinese Restaurant near Newport Beach that by Special Request can make some very good Taiwanese Food.
I called the Chef(Eric) and ordered a Special Authentic Taiwanese Lunch for 12 last week and the food was amazing(3 day notice required for the menu below).
Shrimp Salad w/tempura, glazed walnuts, raisins, Ginger Dressing
Shrimp TWO WAYS
Live Maine Lobster (House Special in French Cream Sauce)
Filet of Tenderloin w/peppers, onions, oyster sauce
Jumbo Shrimp Rangoon (stuffed with cream cheese)
Incredible FRESH LOBSTER SOUP
Fresh Maine Scallops w/ aromatic sauce
Whole Fried Fish
Very light Fried Rice w/bbq pork, Shrimp , Chicken
35- ea food only (unbelievable price)
May Garden Restaurant

The French cream sauce and the shrimp rangoon do not seem authentic to me. IMHO, dairy products have absolutely no place in Chinese cooking =).
I think the key here is that the op referred to the lunch as being "special authentic Taiwanese". The food may be delicious, but there is no way in hell that this is representative a typical Taiwanese banquet!
