Budai Gourmet ChineseThis small Taiwanese-owned eatery is full of surprises. The regular menu is a long and interesting read, full of familiar and unusual Taiwanese and Chinese dishes (tea-smoked duck, steamed fish with ginger and scallions, dim sum). If you ask questions about the food, you might get a history lesson from Elsa Fang, who handles the front of the restaurant while her husband, Hsia, does the cooking. And if you ask her to, she will translate the secret menu from Chinese. The seasonal vegetables and other vegetarian offerings are strong here, too. Try the goji berry soup with pollock and pickled mustard greens in a soothing, slightly sour broth. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)
