Du Xiao Yue: Taipei Small Eats

On my last night in Taipei, we went to Du Xiao Yue on Yongkang Jie for dinner with my extended family.  It's a cozy, clean place serving lots of homestyle Taiwanese Xiao Chi (small plates).  I really enjoyed it; it was like comfort food to me as my mom makes a lot of these dishes at home, one of my favorites being ba so (ground pork, shallots and garlic simmered together for a long time in soy and rock sugar), so I'll definitely be back for future visits.
