Golden Formosa, Smith and Hsu

1/17/10 -- Today was an idyllic Sunday for sure. As I woke up today I hurried to the Golden Formosa Restaurant for a family gathering. The occassion? My aunt Shirley wanted to rehearse the Chinese New Year's Eve. While I have never been enthused about having to rehearse anything at all ever in my life, I did welcome this very rehearsal with all my heart.

We arrived at the restaurant to find two tables waiting for us, so I figured the luncheon would be attended by 20 folks or so. Cousin Ying Ying's daughter Keli was already waiting there. Everyone soon arrived and the food came on in robust amount and lightening fast speed.This was my first time visiting the Golden Formosa Restaurant, even though it has been in the Tianmu District for about 30 years. I have to say I'm quite impressed with the orderly service, and the rather joyful ambiance. The food was good too. My only question would be whether the dishes that we will have on New Year's Eve would be exactly the same as we had it today--if so, I guess the rehearsal spoiled the fun!!

After going home to rest a bit, cousin Jane and her fiancee Murphy decided to meet up with me in Tianmu for a rare get-together. We didn't have enough time to talk during lunch and thought it would be nice to catch up a bit! Smith and Hsu opened up in Tianmu recently and so I suggested we went there. Well! What a lovely afternoon tea we had. In the stark and industrial looking cool toned room, we finished the entire high tea set. Everything was really delicious; the service was acceptable--not great, but acceptable.

Just here in Tianmu area we have so much to choose from. I definitely find this part of town convenient and fun!
