Excited about Eating by Ernie & Dora Hiers

This edition of Excited about Eating takes us to Huntersville, NC, to a restaurant recommended by a close friend, House of Taipei.

House of Taipei, Excited about Eating, Ernie & Dora Hiers

Ample parking, no wait on a Sunday night

This restaurant serves authentic style Chinese dishes, some labeled Favorable, Traditional, Unforgettable and Vegetarian. Dora here. We saw several people toting take-out containers on the way in, so it appears they may be just as popular with take-out as eat-in. Although we’ve heard that sometimes there’s a wait, on this particular Sunday evening, we were seated immediately. 🙂

No wait for our Sunday evening dinner

For my dinner, I chose the Pepper Steak. It’s a challenge for me to order at Asian restaurants fearing I will order something that has more heat than I can take. (Dora here. No worries. They offer a ramp-it-up or dial-it-down option. 🙂 ) The sliced tenderloin is sautéed with green bell peppers and onions in a brown sauce. The steak was tender and the veggies had just the right amount of bite, and the sauce would have been great on any dish. Full of favor, I would definitely order this dish again.

Pepper Steak, definitely a repeat

Dora here. The Flower Chicken intrigued me. Slices of chicken, water chestnuts (I love that crunch, don’t you?), red peppers, broccoli and mushrooms sauteed in a light, not-sure-if-its-really-there sauce. I’m not into heavy sauces so that was perfect for me. Delicate and light, colorful and pretty, the name of the dish really fits. And the best part? For just over $10, I had enough leftover chicken for another meal. Score!

Flower Chicken was delicious and I took home enough chicken for another meal

  1. Glad you finally made it there and liked it! Knowing my luck it would have been terrible that day but we have eaten there for years, it’s our favorite Chinese anywhere.

  2. Lynn and I started eating @ The House of Taipei years ago when it was originally located in University Place. It is our favorite Chinese restaurant. We have always been satisfied with the food. We usually get the Sa Sa Chicken or Scrimp (we like spicy) but Lynn has also gotten the Flower Chicken several times when eating on the lighter side.
