Down a side street and up a flight of stairs, Taiwan Café can be hard to find, making the journey part of the adventure. With more than 100 items, the sprawling menu incorporates something for everyone, especially those with an adventurous palate. (Lily buds, duck tongues and pork intestines make multiple appearances.) Curious types interested in trying Taiwanese-style dishes—including soups, noodles, dumplings, and meats—are well-served.
Boston has one of the oldest and largest Chinatowns in the country, and its influence has spread all across the region, meaning we have top-notch kitchens creating flavorful dim sum, delicate hand cut noodles and other specialties in Boston, Cambridge and of course, Quincy. Chinese restaurants are a popular late-night dining option in a city that's notorious for shutting down early; several of Boston’s top Chinese eateries are packed after 2am, when many of the best bars in Boston (and best clubs in Boston) close down.
