MVP Garden Restaurant, other Taiwanese?

I had dinner last night at MVP in Monterey Park -- it was my first time and I really enjoyed it. We had huge shrinp -- fresh out of the tank and boiled. So simple, so sweet, each shrimp overflowing with delicious eggs. Also a wonderful, clean whole steamed fish which was introduced to us (brought to our table in a bucket) before being cooked. We also had massive steamed oysters with a very salty fermented black bean sauce. Dinner came with a complementary lotus root soup that was delicious. Has anyone been to MVP? What are the other Taiwanese style places fin Monterey Park? Dinner was followed by bubble tea rom MVP express.
Glad to have your input -- I also thought it was Hong Kong style. My friend who took me spent time in Taiwan and recognized most of the dishes and assured me it was Taiwanese. The offerings reminded me of the Sweet and Tart in NYC which is Hong Kong all the way. I vote Hong Kong for MVP. I am fairly new to dining in the San Gabriel Valley -- any places I shouldn't miss?
Two other favorites: "NBC" on Atlantic after Garvey in Monterey Park, and "Harbor Seafood" on Valley and New. There are a plethora of these type of restaurants in the San Gabriel Valley area, but these two are my favorites.
