Taiwan was at 6th Ave. and Clement when I lived at 7th & Lake in the
mid-1990s, and it's still there, still has good food, still a bargain.
Mustard Greens with Flat Tofu turned out to be mustard greens with
tofu skin. My companion wanted pot stickers and moo shu chicken, and
said he was "sorry for ordering such a white-boy meal," but no
apologies were necessary, the food was excellent. $20 pre tip, very
large portions. The pot sticker wrapping is made in house, and it's
thicker than is typical, the dumplings are about twice the average
size.
Hope no roundeyes are offended by my use of "white-boy."

How is that a white-boy meal? I know lots of Chinese who eat both
potstickers and mu shu X.

You should write "no roundeyes were harmed in the eating of this
dinner".

Didn't you say you were part slant? As a slant, or an n-word, you are
free to use all of the usual abbreviations and appelations.

If you are at least 95.841% Caucasian, you are required to say in a
hushed, apologetic tone "Did you hear that she used the n-word?"

Meanwhile, the schwarzes freely say nigger this, nigger that, don't nig
me up, let's nigger-rig that AC unit, nigger please, etc.

The Top Nigga must be angry at them as he burns off Africa with Ebola.

Here's the context: we were looking at the hand-lettered signs on the
wall that announced dishes like "hot spicy tripe" and things with pork
blood in them, and I mentioned that I used to make it a policy always
to order the strangest thing on the menu, at any restaurant, but that
I don't do that now. That was when he made the "white boy meal"
comment.

But, yeah, they were serving a lot of orders pot stickers to a lot of
Chinese people.

Is this Taiwan Restaurant run by the same family that ran the Taiwan Restaurant on University in Berkeley? I *loved* that place.

Don't think so.

There's also a Taiwan Restaurant in San Jose, also unrelated
<http://www.taiwanrestaurantsj.com/html/2020Menu.pdf> but the one in San
Jose is an American-Chinese restaurant and it doesn't serve Taiwanese food.

We have several Taiwanese restaurants in Cupertino, Saratoga, and west
San Jose.

Chick'n'Tea is Taiwanese, on El Camino and Fair Oaks, Sunnyvale. Very popular.

When I used to ride the light rail and the Safeway girl on the loudspeaker announced the stops, I thought the spelling was "Farouks" like in Saudi Arabia.
