Lunch @ Shiang Chang Restaurant, Taoyuan - Taiwan

Frequented by many factory executives Shiang Chang is one of the finer dining establishments around the Taoyuan county area that specializes in Taiwanese, Cantonese and Japanese dishes.


This visit we had a quick lunch and opted to go ala carte rather than the usual set menu. We started off with an assortment of Salmon Sashimi, Salmon Roe (Ikura) and Clams. This was my first time having the clam and it was really good. It had a nice chewy and crunchy texture and the spicy bean paste gave it a nice savory flavor.

Assorted Sashimi

Stir-Fry local vegetables with garlic was different from the Cantonese version which is usually dry. The vegetables had some sauce which made the vegetables a little softer and gave it more flavor than the drier version.

Cantonese Stir-Fry Noodles with Beef came next. The noodles were way too oily and did not pack much of a flavor.

Stir Fry Flat Rice Noodles with Beef

The Pork and Fried Shredded Tofu soup came last. The tofu imparted a lot of its flavor into the soup and went well with the mushrooms and pork.

Pork and Shredded Beancurd Puff Soup

To end our meal we were given a plate of fruits.


To sum it all up the meal was decent and filled our stomachs. I don't know how much this meal cost because my supplier treated me.
