Not being able to travel overseas has given opportunities to business to bring the overseas taste locally. +886 bistro along Jalan Besar serves simple Taiwanese fare.

Their Scallion Chicken rice has a nice fragrance from the scallion oil and meat sauce. It is also very homely tasting. Opposed to their typical fried crispy chicken, we decided to go for their Imperial Pork Chop with the founder’s great grandparents recipe. It’s pretty unique. Not greasy, the skin is actually a little chewy. The pork may not be as juicy, but it’s tender enough.

Now is just missing the taiwan vibes.

I usually don’t order idlis because as a non Indian who didn’t grow up eating idlis for breakfast , I find it bland n tasteless. But these idlis with their inhouse blend of podi seasoning really revolutionised my concept of what the humble idli can achieve . Every week they add in a special secret ingredient into their podi mix n ask diners for a taste test , which I failed miserably at identifying . The chutneys were delicious ( tomatoe , eggplant & coconut ) . The food here is “clean” tasting , quality ingredients like home made cooking done lovingly by ur grandmama . Totally opposite from the heavy ,oily ,overly spiced up Indian food u encounter in typical Indian restaurants. I loved everything we ordered.

Elevated & more atas version fried rice; mild sambal taste but able to taste a tinge of spicy; flavorful with some wok-hei; with pieces of crunchy scallops, roast pork & veggie; quite oily..

Hand-made 2 layer of egg & wheatgrass tofu steamed & deep-fried; tofu is soft & silky-smooth with strong egg taste, wheatgrass taste is very mild; with a layer of soft spinach at the bottom; with a medley of mushroom in thick brown sauce that complement the tofu well..

“Oh I’ve not had brunch with friends in awhile” I thought as I made myself comfortable while waiting for my dining companions. It was great to be able to be there, with the easing of COVID restrictions.

Soon we ordered our mains and chatted away happily while sipping on the acclaimed coffee here that doesn’t disappoint. While the coffee came swiftly it took a good 45 mins for our food to arrive, we were warned of the longer waiting time with all tables full on a Sunday.
My French toast was a nice mixture of crunch and citrusy fruits; while there was nothing outstanding about the toast itself it made a good brunch item for my sweet tooth.

No frills Taiwanese eatery, food was decent; the braised meat rice and fried stuff were good! Would return if in the area. Would be better if Burpple menu was expanded
