|Stewed Pork Rice|
I first got to know about this place through my JC friend, whose Taiwanese parents are the owners and chefs of Wonderful Taiwan Delights. While I didn't get the chance of meeting him on the day of my visit to the restaurant, the hospitality was nothing short of warm and homely.
The menu has a wide variety of appetizers, stir-fried dishes, desserts and drinks which are common fare in Taiwan. If you're on Facebook, you should follow them closely, for they occasionally add new dishes to their menu to give customers something new to look forward to during every visit. It is evident that they have injected some Singaporean flair into a few dishes to cater to the local taste buds.
Every table gets a serving of the following appetisers: braised peanuts, spicy seaweed, marinated beancurd skin and braised preserved vegetables with fatty pork. I particularly liked the beancurd skin for its chewy texture. The seaweed was a little too spicy for my liking.

Oyster mee sua is a no-frills staple in Taiwan, but to make a lip-smacking good version of it takes a whole lot of conviction. The chefs did it right, judging from how the contents in this bowl was snapped up in an instant. The rice noodles were silky smooth, and I didn't find those disgusting starch balls in mee sua made by unskilled chefs.

This dish is somewhat Singapore-inspired, though it's not too difficult to find in Taiwan. My family cooks this at home too, and I like our version with cubed century eggs and salted eggs. The silverfish added a dash of flavour and colour to the spinach.

The chicken wings are worth a try, though my dad commented that the seasoning could have been done for a longer period of time.

The family were adventurous enough to try the battered oysters.
