Try a Taste of Pigs’ Feet at Cafe Taiwan in Pleasanton

January 20, 2016 8:39 pm

There's a pretty simple way to determine that Cafe Taiwan is authentic: the Mandarin characters on its menu. The eatery spells out its noodle and rice dishes in both English and Mandarin for an eclectic clientele, but no matter your first language, you'll be able to appreciate the robust, complex flavors in each dish.

Dive into your feast with the hakka dumplings appetizer. With each bite, the fresh dumplings burst with minced pork and a steaming broth seasoned with exotic herbs and spices. Once you're ready to dig into the main course, try the pigs' feet. Although pigs' feet might be a bit outside of your comfort zone, regulars say the outlandish eat is well worth a taste if you're an adventurous eater. Locals also like the Sakura shrimp, so opt for that entree if you're more interested in seafood than pork.
