Review: Eats at Corner 23

by gigi on August 10, 2008

Despite my less than impressive bubble tea outing at Corner 23, I decided to give it another try and went there for dinner with Ann and Karen.  I had noticed from the last time I was there that most people had some food along with their drink, so I figured it would be good.

Ann ordered some deep-fried crispy chicken for the three of us to share.  This is always one of my favourite appies to order at Taiwanese restaurants even though it is definitely not the healthiest.  :)  The chicken was very crispy and had the slightest hint of spiciness.

I decided to go with the three cup chicken with rice meal.  Three cup chicken got its name because it is made with three main ingredients: one cup each of soy sauce, sesame oil, and rice wine.  I enjoyed this version quite a bit because it was not too oily.  The deep fried basil probably was not the healthiest but was very tasty.  Several of the meals at Corner 23 also include some side dishes, such as pickled vegetables and broccoli.

I had a blueberry green tea with my meal and surprisingly, this time, it was very good!  The blueberry flavour was nice and I think it went well with the green tea base.

Karen was feeling a bit sick so she went healthy with a seafood hot pot with vermicelli noodles.  There was quite a variety of seafood included and a swirly egg as well.  I’m not sure how good this would be normally but it was quite suitable for a sickish person.  :)

Ann chose the deep-fried pork chop with rice.  If I recall, it was about $8 and as you can see below, was enough food to feed a very hungry person.  :)

I must say that this visit to Corner 23 was much better than my first visit.  I went back another time after this and the food was still quite tasty.  I suppose they’ll have to work on their consistency if anything else, but in general, both the service and food at Corner 23 are a good value for your money.
