Taiwanese / Chinese in Roslindale

  • 1

Haven't seen a post on this yet, so here it goes. There's a relatively new Chinese / Taiwanese takeout place in Roslindale on Belgrade Ave. across from the perpetually renamed Albanian place. It's been there for at least 3 months, if not longer, but I just made it there tonight for the first time.

The menu is short by takeout standards and while there are some typical dishes (General Gao, etc), there are a number of interesting sounding noodle soups and other dishes. I don't know anything about Taiwanese cuisine but the food was tasty and interesting in comparison to regular takeout Chinese. I had Famous Spicy Beef Noodle Soup with Sour Vegetable and the XO Sauce Fried Noodles. The XO Sauce Noodles were esentially lo mein though spicier and with better veggies. The beef soup had chunks of beef (tender and stew like), bok choi and pickled veggies on plain noodles; the broth was served separately to be poured over the other stuff at home.

Decor is much nicer and cleaner than my typical take out joint, but that may be because there seemed to be not much action their. Unless tonight was slow b/c of the weather I doubt they'll survive.

If anyone else has been there, I'd love to hear your thoughts...

  1. That's exciting. There has been a dearth of real Chinese in this area. Do you know if they have a menu online?
