Gao San Siao Sandwich – Taipei
I’ve been working at Neihu district for about 4 months now, I have tried just about every restaurant here. Today I am going to introduce a restaurant that I highly recommend.
‘Gao San Siao’ is a restaurant that sells sandwiches. I love to get myself a sandwich there for lunch, it’s not too heavy so I don’t get too much of a food coma during the afternoon 🙂
Once inside the restaurant, you can see the blackboard that has the menu and also the ingredients and their origin.
他們的菜單其實蠻簡單的，餐點的部份分為兩類 一是烤吐司 一是烤菠蘿堡。而口味主要有豬排、雞排及一些其他的選項。
Their menu is quite simple, the meal is split into 2 categories, one is grilled sandwiches, and one is grilled sandwich with pineapple bun. For either choice, you can add pork chop, chicken, and other options inside your sandwich.
The grilled sandwich menu
The restaurant’s ingredients are all quite famous. For example, the bread is ‘Jin Xiang Food Corp Vegetarian Toast’, and the milk is ‘High Milk’.
The detailed descriptions of the ingredients do make me feel safer and healthier as a consumer
Menu for grilled sandwich with pineapple bun
Here you have to pay first, mark the menu and you can bring it to the cashier to pay.
Anything with meat cost at least 60-70, and veggie option cost around 40-45.
For drinks, there is black tea, green tea, coffee, milk, and milk tea.
All the mean is made fresh so the wait is quite long. They have an open kitchen so you can see the chefs busy making the delicious sandwiches.
You can get gloves on the counter
The restaurant is furnished just like a high-school classroom. The table and chair is the kind you find in a high school.
The Taiwan’s food variety show ‘Shi Shang Wan Jia’ came to this restaurant before.
The wall has graffiti of ‘Xi Men Ding Ten-Thousand Year Department Store’
The store is the Jiangnan store, and since the Chinese name is the same as psys ‘Gangnam’ style, they drew a sign with psy.
Sisley Chicken Leg Sandwich
The sandwich is cut into halves, and each half has a toothpick in it so be careful.
There is quite a lot of ingredients inside the sandwich. The bottom has a thick and tender piece of chicken, there is also a fried egg, lettuce and pickles. The chicken is quite flavorful and tender and a little bit spicy.
Hungary Pork Chop Sandwich $80
The grilled sandwich is quite soft, potato salad’s potato has good texture, the egg is thick kind of like Japanese style Tamago, taste quite refreshing with the pickles and lettuce.
Cheese Pork Chop Sandwich with Pineapple Bun $70
Feels like I am in a dim sum place with this dish. The pineapple bun’s surface is sweet and soft, and compliments the juicy pork chop and fried egg!
Pork chop and Egg sandwich $60
Unlike Hungary Pork Chop Sandwich, this does not have potato salad in it, this makes me finding the taste slightly lacking.
The back of their business card has the full menu.
Here is the transparent take-out container.
I had the chance to eat both the grilled sandwich and grilled sandwich with pineapple buns. Its hard to pick a clear-winner here. I feel both has its own style of taste.
