Taipei 101 Satisfies

Authentic Chinese cuisine awaits all who visit Taipei 101, a welcome recent addition for diners in downtown Cary. The full-service restaurant forgoes the traditional buffet-style fare in favor of Szechuan, Zhejiang and Taiwanese offerings ordered from a menu.

Whether it’s beef, chicken, pork, tofu, seafood or vegetarian, all the bases are covered. And if you prefer food with a kick, the bill of fare also is replete with spicy selections.

Proprietor Wen-Kai Ho, who hails from Taiwan, says many Taipei customers enjoy the more piquant options. Whatever you decide to order, the portion will be copious and piping hot when it arrives at the table.

Among the most savory entrees is the incendiary Szechuan fish (see picture below). Tender pieces of tilapia with red chili peppers deliver just the right amount of heat without contributing any adverse burn.

Another smoldering option is the hot chili chicken, in which Szechuan and other peppers generate a tingly sensation on the tongue. Additional fiery choices include chili pepper steak, Kung Pao shrimp and sautéed spicy cabbage.

Unlike many Chinese restaurants, Taipei 101’s spacious dining room is filled with natural light emanating through large windows. Gracious, efficient servers make the overall dining experience even more satisfying.

Be advised: Taipei 101 is closed on Mondays.
