Because of its hidden location
and the fact that no sign can be found, Su Hang
is one of those special restaurants that most
customers find out about through word of mouth.
Open for four years, Su Hang has caters to Suzhou-Hangzhou
cuisine. To widen the selection, Mr. Huang Yan-Ling,
the deputy manager, and the cooking team visit
Shanghai regularly to bring back the most popular
dishes, such as Fragrant Yellow Fish (NT$200).
This dish, prepared by marinating fish in bean
curd sauce, then deep frying it, is a great appetizer
in the summer.
Su Hang got its fame from the
Green Onion Fried Omelet (NT$40/piece) and LooFah
Shrimp Soup Dumplings (NT$100/8 pieces), both
on the must-order list. In fact, each table can
only order two servings. The Green Onion Fried
Omelet is prepared with flour and stuffed with
a generous amount of I-lan's green onions and
deep fried to golden color. It is crispy and delicious.
The soup dumplings are stuffed with abundant shrimp
and loofah from Penghu. When you open up the steamer,
green loofah can be seen through the almost transparent
skin, which makes one's mouth water. The best
way to enjoy them is nipping through the skin
and tasting the soup first, followed by the stuffing,
mixing the taste with fragrant fresh shrimp and
crunchy juicy loofa.
DongPo Pork (NT$360) is marinated
with rock sugar and soy sauce. It's cooked for
hours so the flavor sinks into the pork, and served
with chicken necks.
BaBao Sticky Rice
Cake (NT$240) is filled with fried pork stomach,
shoots, chicken, and pork with Sichuan chili sauce.
