I'm actually neither ABC or MIT. Grand parents fled China to South Korea back in the 30's. I was born in South Korea but had Taiwanese passport and went to Taiwanese school. Wife is from Taiwan.

My main reason to make a thread like this is to reunite all the taiwanese together. Would definitely be easier to get a meet if we do in the future!

Speaking of food, wife and I went to Bob Sang's on Saturday night for dinner. Flavor is above average but not great. $18 for AYCE, is a great deal. Service is way above average for Korean BBQ place. Now, is it Bab or Bob Sang's? Wife and I were laughing about how it shows both there. Thanks for the referral. I ended up driving almost 200 miles that day.

Have you tried Quickly's/King of Dumping's in Newark? They have a pretty good beef noodle soup there among other Taiwanese dishes you can't find at a typical restaurant.

I like Southland Flavor Cafe in Cupertino Square. Good stinky tofu.

Even better stinky tofu is Joy's in Foster City. They have a big parking lot where we can all get some some pics with cars lined up.

Let's organize this. We can go for a drive on Skyline Blvd after.

I'm MIT, immigrated at age 9. Go back to Taiwan every year.

Sounds good. Always down for stinky tofu!

In SF there is one Taiwanese place I know of, Taste of Formosa. It's not bad. They have Taiwan Beer.. which tastes terrible as usual but that what makes it good. lol
