Where can you find such rare delights as stinky tofu, tea eggs, oyster pancakes or pork rib and lotus soup? You could travel to Southern Taiwan or be lucky enough to have Taiwanese heritage, or you could come to Southland Flavor Cafe in the South Bay! Our huge, 800-item menu offers a complete and authentic exploration of Taiwanese cuisine at its flavorful best. We use recipes passed down for decades. If you are new to our cuisine, you will enjoy becoming acquainted with a repertoire of textures and tastes that is both delicious and exciting.
Start by exploring our appetizer options. Here you'll find small samples of every part of our full menu. Our Taiwanese salted vegetables are just the thing to rouse your appetite. Try some simmered beef shank in Taiwanese spices, simmered pigs' feet or tripe. Taiwanese cooks take pride in using almost every part of the animal and making it delicious.
But there is plenty on our menu for the less adventurous. A favorite Taiwanese lunch is a pork chop with rice; you can find this meal being served everywhere in Taiwan. Our version will make you full and happy. Soup is also popular, and we serve a complete range of them. Beef noodle soup is a customer favorite, but for a real Taiwanese experience try bitter melon and sparerib soup.
Because of the Buddhist influence, many Taiwanese are vegetarian. Our chefs have lots of experience with vegetarian food, and we make sure it's as tasty as our meat dishes. Vegetarians can order soups and noodles without meat or with our substitute "ham" or "chicken." Seafood is another one of our specialties. Taiwan has ocean on all sides, and Taiwanese chefs take delicious advantage of the sea's bounty.
While the most famous Taiwanese dish, stinky tofu, can be an acquired taste, everyone who has the opportunity to sample it should do so! Our stinky tofu is one dish that can transport homesick Taiwanese right back to the winding alleys and night markets of their home country. Come to Southland Flavor Cafe and bring your appetite!
