8090 台湾小吃, Flushing, New York, United States (Food rating: 3.5/5)

Flushing, being the epicenter of Chinese Culture outside Asia, has attributed to the remarkable diversity in the area. In recent years, the number of Taiwanese cuisine had mushroomed. Food stalls selling Taiwanese cuisine were more prominent along Main Street. I could see these stalls at almost every street corner.

8090 Taiwanese Snacks is a food stall located in New York Food Court along Roosevelt Avenue. It was quite popular as I saw queues each time I went there. The food prices were affordable and the portion was quite large.

The Braised Minced Meat over Rice (卤肉饭), priced at USD5.00, tasted almost as good as the quality in Taiwan. The braised minced meat was fragrant and tender. However, it was an overkill to add parsley in the dish. The rice dish included a bowl of miso soup. (Food rating: 3.5/5)

Salted Crispy Chicken (盐酥鸡), priced at USD4.50, was a must-have. The chicken pops reminded me so much of the ones I have eaten at a Taiwanese Bubble Tea Cafe many years ago. The outer crust was crispy but meat was very tender and moist. The pepper and salt drizzled chicken pops were delicious. It was a pity that I have forgotten to take a picture. By the time I remembered, I saw an empty plate starting in front of me. (Food rating: 3.5/5)

Pork Chop over Rice (猪排饭), priced at USD6.95, was equally delicious. The marinated pork chop tasted so much like Kingwueng Pork or Formosa Chang. Other sides included a half piece of hard boiled egg, preserved vegetables, salad and bland cabbage. (Food rating: 3.5/5)
