Southeast Asian Food - Restaurant Review

Lisa Huang

        Never traveled to Southeast Asia? Wondering what kind of food they eat there? There is a great place here in Taichung where you can experience Southeast Asian cuisine. Southeast Asian Food, located at Dadun 12th street (one block away from Dadun Carrefour), has been open for 8 years.

        The first time you walk into Southeast Asian Food, you might think it is no different from other local restaurants. The restaurant doesn’t have much decoration; it doesn’t look like anything special. However, as the saying goes, “you can’t judge a book by its cover.”  Although this restaurant is not like those theme restaurant, which have lots of decorations, what makes the restaurant special is the people who work here.

         Most of the workers come from Vietnam, and you can tell they love their work by the happiness you see in their faces. Although you might not understand what they are talking about when they are working, you can sense their happiness in the language which is used world-widesmiling. Another thing that makes this restaurant special is that Southeast Asian Food is super clean; you don’t need to worry that cockroaches will eat your food!

        What can you eat at Southeast Asian Food? You have lots of choices, not only of foods but also drinks. There are two kinds of food that you can try at this restaurantThai food and Vietnamese food. There are many dishes on the menu, but you can’t order a set meal. If you want to try a number of different dishes at one time, go to Southeast Asian Food with your friends and share. Drinks are not included with the dishes, but you can order green tea, beer, soda, or coconut juice from their drinks menu.

        My latest visit to Southeast Asian Food, I ordered Green Curry Beef Bean Noodles. The bean noodles were fried with some vegetables, beef, and green curry. Before I began to eat, the dish smelled a bit sour. When I began to eat, however, I was surprised by how spicy it was since it didn’t look spicy. From their drinks menu, I ordered a bottle of green tea and drank it while I was eating. The more I ate, the better the dish tasted. I think I quickly became addicted to the spicy and sour taste of the dish.
Also worth noting is the service at Southeast Asian Food. You won’t need to spend lots of time waiting for your meal; moreover, the boss is a friendly person, and he is always at the restaurant helping the workers.
        Southeast Asian Food is a wonderful place to experience the cuisine of Southeast Asia without leaving the country. Although it doesn’t look like a high-class restaurant, the food here is awesome. I’m sure you won’t want to miss it!
