As the name suggests, Taiwan Pork Chop House serves pork chops, and while they’re enjoyable (especially for $2.50 each), our favorite things here are the fried rice cakes with shredded pork or the tender wontons drenched in spicy oil. Everything on the menu is both shareable and under $10, so bring a group and order a lot (and bring cash). You should probably get two or three orders of the wontons, but we recommend ordering in stages as all of the food comes out really quickly.
