Aroma Island: Taiwan Gourmet
Nelson: A Taiwanese place in Mississauga is welcome. I wonder if it is any good...
Shredded pork with Tian-Mu Bamboo (天目山笋炒肉絲). This dish was only ok and even though I knew the bamboo shoots were going to be of the dried variety, but I was still wistful of getting a taste of fresh bamboo shoots.
|A Taiwanese classic, 3 cup chicken ($9.99). I think my dad asked for less salt and maybe as a result the flavour was really subtle, especially considering how it usually tastes. It looks really plain and I was expecting to be able to see the greener ingredients. The high number of bones also made it hard to eat. I've had much better versions of this dish.|
|Sliced fish with celery and snow peas was really well made. I always enjoy the soft and boneless fish in this dish.|
|Although it says duck on the menu, I'm pretty sure this "duck with basil and wine casserole" (九層塔豉汁啤唒鴨煲) was chicken. Once again it had a lot of bones and had a stronger flavour overall, perhaps because it was cooked with beer. Enjoyable if only there were fewer bones.|
|Last is the soup, which was salty and served first, unlike how it is usually served in Taiwan (last).|
