Chinese restaurants aren’t that special, right? Just fast food, or even a buffet to be scarfed down in less than an hour at lunch? Not so at the House of Taipei in Huntersville. When you enter you can see the difference in the table linens. The restraurant is filled with rich dark woods and the table linens are white cotton (even the napkins!).
We started off with Hot and Sour Soup, which had a thick, rich broth and was chock full of mushrooms and tofu. We’ve also had their egg rolls which are crispy and delicious. For our entrees on this night we shared, of course. My husband got Moo Shu Pork, which is a little like a Chinese pancake. It is a thin tortilla spread with Hoisin sauce and topped with a stir-fried picture of pork, bamboo shoots, mushrooms and cabbage. That is my favorite! I ordered the Shrimp in Firecracker sauce, which is described a spicy Chinese marinara sauce. It is fantastic! See the picture above for these entrees.
We always order too much so we never have room for dessert, but we always get the fortune cookies for the ride home.
