Formosa Bistro – best Edmonton food find of the year

Everything good that I hope to have in a dining experience, I found here: a pleasant room (basic but pretty); easy to get to and plenty of parking; helpful, lovely staff; good value, and of course, great food.

Every time I left, I was already thinking about what I’d have on my return visit.

Enjoy the visuals:

Triangle sandwiches and spicy wontons. Get both. Get extra. Also, order the white kimchi. It’s great to have a bit of it with the richer dishes. 
Gua bao (pork belly)
Lu rou fan (pork belly over rice), seaweed soup, deep-fried squid tentacles.
Century egg tofu.
Beef noodle soup.
Sweet potato fries.
Noodles with pan-fried pork.
Pork dumplings.
Popcorn chicken.
