Taiwanese Specialties review image

Taiwanese Specialties

Perfect For:Big Groups

At Taiwanese Specialties, the food comes out quickly and the servers are incredibly good at keeping your cup full of scalding hot tea. And those are just two of the (minor) reasons why we like this Elmhurst spot. The Taiwanese food here is also very good, this is a great place for a casual group meal, and you could spend an hour or two staring at the extensive menu. Whatever you choose, get some fly’s head and the fried stinky tofu for the table. Also, bring cash.
