Down a side street and up a flight of stairs, Taiwan Café is hard to find—but once you have, you’ll soon be back. Though seafood figures prominently and wonderfully, as in salt-and-pepper-fried squid, the kitchen has range: Choice examples include julienned beef sautéed with longhorn peppers and tangy, sweet braised eggplant with basil.
