One of my favorite Taiwanese restaurants is Asian Legends. They food they serve is consistently delicious, they have lots of appetizers to choose from as well as mains. My favorite things to get is appetizers (as I miss Taiwanese street food dearly)...and that's we did this time.
Top left: Jelly fish in a bit of seseme oil. I LOVE jellyfish. I just love the crunchy but chewy texture and I usually only get to have it when there is a Chinese ten course banquet dinner.
To Right: Marinated duck tongue. Odd to most western cultures, common in asian cultures, just slightly salty and in a bit of seseme oil, it's delicious! :-)
Bottom center: Smoked fish. It's marinated in a sweet sauce, and it's been cooked for so long that you can eat ALL of the parts of the fish, including the fins and bones. I enjoyed this dish...the marinated fish is kind of like eating a candied salmon (and I love candied salmon).
Last dish that is also one of my favorites, is rolled onion pancake with sliced beef ($5.95). I think they wrap it in foil so that the entire pancake doesn't fall apart as easily. But this is so tasty, and slight greasy, that I have to order this every time.
I highly recommend this restaurant. There are other great Taiwanese restaurants in Toronto, but this chain of restaurants (with 6 location in Toronto) is one of my favorites and easily satisfies. :-)
