$30 for 6 courses and dessert. The flavors are reminiscent of Bangkok Golden III, but multi-courses like Little Serow, with pricing more like BGIII. Big winners last night were their sausage stuffed squid, medium rare duck larb, and chili prawns (eat your Chinese water spinach on the bottom of the dish!). The tamarind soup would be more exciting if full of tripe, intestines, etc. instead of chicken. The duck egg in the papaya salad should be marinated in salt first. The last dish was a coconut curry fish, which was good but I'm not a fan of coconuts.

    Thanks for the report. Did Erik serve the Taiwanese shaved ice as dessert?

      Shaved ice, but there's all kinds of stuff that I wouldn't call it Taiwanese.

      On the bottom of the fish dish were kale or mustard greens, eat those too.
