蒸籠 dim sum

Taipei Main Station is one of the busiest stations in Taipei. It is also a great location for food and electronics. While a lots of dim sum restaurants in Taipei are more pricy and serve mainly premade frozen food, everything at 蒸籠 is not only reasonably priced but also made-to-order. 蒸籠 is a good place for both lunch and dinner with family or a small group of friends.






叉燒酥 cha shao su (BBQ pork pastry)
As a huge叉燒酥 fan, this was the first thing I ordered offthe menu. Overall, I was satisfied.The biggest difference between this and other 叉燒酥s is that it is soft and steamed rather than crispy. It might not be the best 叉燒酥 out there but it is definitely less greasy and healthier than others. I'd give it a 3 out of 5.


牛肉腸粉 neo rou chang fen (beef rice roll)
This dish had a meaty flavor to it and somehow reminded me of a meat pie. It tasted great with soy sauce yet I'd say some would enjoy it with the beef but some might prefer shrimps instead. It's all a matter of personal preference.


波羅油 buo luo you (Cantonese pineapple bread w/ butter)
The bread is warm and crispy while the butter is cold and soft. An ultimate food experience. Highly recommended to everyone!


蘿蔔糕 luo buo gao (pan-fried white radish cake)
A classic must-order dim sum that is only for 39nt!



炒飯 chao fan (fried rice)
I would recommend both 叉燒海鮮 (seafood and BBQ pork) 鹹魚雞粒 (salty fish and chicken). The chef was pretty generous when it came to adding ingredients such as shrimps and meat in the fried rice. Recommended to everyone especially kids!




I would recommend 蒸籠 over 1976 if you are looking for a better variety of food. Yet I would say both 蒸籠 and 1976 will feed you well without emptying your wallet.Cheap food with high quality is the way to go in Taipei!
