On our way home passing through the funeral parlors along Araneta Ave., QC, Apple and I noticed a new eatery called Yen Yen which offers Taiwan Street Food. Our first visit there was very satisfying. We ordered Taipei Braised Beef Noodle Soup - Jumbo (P168) and Spicy Wonton (6 pcs @ P 78). The noodles are soft and thinner than the Japanese udon and the soup was tasty with a little tinge of spice. We also ordered their Taiwan mini-siopao for take out (4 pcs @ P78). We were lucky to receive a discount since one of the owners recognized me as one of his teachers at DLSU-Manila. He graduated BSME in 1998. We enjoyed the food very much that we promised to return the following Sunday.
Our second visit the following Sunday was with the kids. We ordered Wonton Noodle Soup, Crispy Taiwan Porkchops, Chewy Kikiam, Crispy Taoso Tofu, Taiwan Special Fried Rice. The kids love the noodles. The soup though has too much seaweeds. Geof enjoyed the porkchops, while Apple and I consumed the tofu with the crispy toppings soaked in soy sauce and the kikiam. The serving of the special rice was generous which is more than 3 servings.
The resto is relatively small with about six tables for four. You will have no problem with parking since Yen Yen is part of the Parking Building.
