forming fish noodles.
But don't miss the simple tastes. Grace Garden always has vegetable specials, and you should pay attention because they're using whatever vegetable looked best to the chief. Last month, we had Chinese chives. They're long, mild chives that come with with a sweet flavor and a tender bite. There is just enough oil to transform them into something that I couldn't make -- flavorful, but not greasy.
On our last trip, we ran into one of the folks who helped turn on the local blog scene to Grace Garden several years ago. We had the pork and tofu at her suggestion. We will order the Taiwanese fish on our next visit and maybe the steamed fish with rice powder because she says they're great. And we'd like you to try the "3Ts -- tripe, tongue and tendon" and tell us about it in the comments. That's two Ts too much for me and Mrs. HowChow, although we disagree on which T seems okay.
