Sweet Delite on Clement

A few days ago I did make good on my promise to stop by Sweet Delite. I had a banana-strawberry smoothie with boba. The lady owner here is sweet as can be; her brother owns Wonderful Foods on Irving Street. She says they use the same recipes, but have a little different product mix. I noticed that Sweet Delite offers some Taiwanese snacks, e.g., noodle soups, and asks that you call your order in ahead. Has anyone tried these items?

Nearly three years later, I did finally order the Taiwanese style beef noodles (niu rou mian).
Noodles a little softer than I'd like, the broth could stand to be more concentrated and deeper. Lots of lean beef, just slightly overcooked and starting to turn dryish, but well-flavored and in generous proportions. I liked having lots of Shanghai cabbages as well.
So, not earth-shattering, but good to know it's there for when the urge strikes. Also, it's not necessary to order in advance, just walk-in.
