The One Restaurant is a popular later-ish nite Taiwanese place that I’ve been meaning to try for ages — especially since I discovered that they had deep fried chicken skins. The food isn’t particularly well-executed, but the prices are reasonable, portions big, and the service (for our visit) was actually fairly quick and prompt.
We quite like Taiwanese food but don’t really have a go-to place that we outright love yet. We used to like Red Persimmon in the Crystal Mall food court (closed and turned into something else), Lingering Flavour beside London Drugs on Kingsway near Joyce (which is now Bubble Waffle Cafe), and Kalvin’s Szechuan. We haven’t really explored Taiwanese food in Richmond except back in the 90s at places like Vogue. Good thing Instagram came through for us again when we found out about Corner 23 Bubble Tea on Cambie near King Edward Ave. Thanks to phancouver in particular for posting this photo.
