What can I say but, wow.  This restaurant on the bottom floor of Tapiei 101 is a great place to try.  The steamed “Shao Long Bao” comes in many different flavors and fillings.  We had the original meat, vegetables, crab and taro.

The beef noodle soup was a little spicy and was flavorful, as was the hot and sour soup. One of my favorite dishes was the spicy thin noodle, which had a spicy red sauce with some peanuts on top.  After giving it a quick mix, the noodles had a great “burn” to it.  Another good dish is the pot stickers, pan fried to a crispy bottom, while retaining most of the juices inside.

This place is definitely worth a try if you are ever in the Taipei area.  They do have some chain stores around Taiwan, and even in the United States in Los Angeles and Seattle.
