Kao’s Family Restaurant台灣高家小館

Date Visited: July 19 2014

Address: 1085 – 8580 Alexandra Road Richmond, BC

Type of Restaurant: Taiwanese

Price Range: $


Overall: 7/10

(1-4: will never come back, 5: pass (I’m okay with a tinier morsel), 6: acceptable, 7: okay, 8: good, 9: Wow! Please enlarge my morsel. 10: Perfection. I could eat a morsel of this every day!)

Will come back? Probably not

What I ate:


Oyster Omelet

  • 8/10
  • The batter for this oyster omelet is thinner than the average batter which caused the sides to be nice and crispy – very enjoyable
  • There was an average amount of oysters – not enough
  • The vegetables added a nice freshness


Crispy Chicken

  • 5/10
  • The chicken was a bit dry
  • The batter on the outside was nice and airy because of the over flouring
  • The portion was also too small for the price that was paid (more expensive than the average Taiwanese place)


Beef Tendon Noodle/Bean Thread in Soup

  • 7/10
  • The soup base was okay not the best, lacked flavour and depth
  • Good amount of noodles, nice bounce to them
  • The tendon was very good, very enjoyable (melted and fell apart in the mouth – close to perfection) not given enough of it!

Ground Pork Sauce on Rice

  • 6/10
  • The rice was too wet and wasn’t of good quality
  • The ground pork sauce lacked fat and flavour – too dry


Cold Noodle

  • 5/10
  • Noodles were cooked nicely
  • The sauce was savoury
  • Would have preferred more peanut taste and more cucumbers to cut through the richness of the sauce

Summary: Nice little family run place, friendly, food was just mediocre.
