I was looking on cheapassfoods.com and they reviewed this taiwanese place on Catherine St called San Chia, anyone been? (i'm always hoping that some decent taiwanese place finally opens up in ctown)

    I was there a month ago, and didn't think it was worth hiking east for the food. The menu's pretty limited with some rice and noodle dishes, no appetizers, and no lu-dan (boiled eggs) which made me very sad. The beef noodles were tasty, but the meat was a little gristly from what I could remember.

        I just tried their beef noodles and my beef was very tender. I thought it was pretty good. If you get take out, request for your soup in a separate container otherwise they will just put it together, cooking your noodles into mush.

        Their chicken leg over rice was a dud for me. The leg was small and I thought their meat sauce was under seasoned. I prefer Excellent pork chop house which is close by.
