Cold Tofu in M​​ild Sauce. Totally there are 6 appetizers. 4 photos are posted here. These 6 appetizers are all of very high quality and are tasty. We are impressed in the very beginning of our meal tonight.

Green Cucumber w/ Mustard Sesame Dressing

Eggplant Ecstasy w/ Homemade Sauce & Crispy Pork Jerky Crumbs

Dried Jelly Fish w/ Shredded Zucchini in Vinegar & Mild Chili Pepper Sauce

Sichuan Beef is yummy, a bit spicy, tender and not tough.

Celestial Rolls are stuffed with ham, mushroom and squab. It is displayed on an eye-catching wooden big plate. The flavor is new and refreshing. It is (a little bit) o​​ily. In our mind, in such pricing, deep-fried stuff should not be oily. It is mainly a matter of cooking skill.

'Soup of Tofu Dice, Fish Maw, Shanghai Greens' is delicious and not watery. We all love this soup.

'Spareribs Braised in Plum Sauce & Soy Sauce' is similar in appearance to Dong Po Pork. We are a bit disappointed as the pork is not soft enough. The taste is not impressive. No matter how presentative it is and how beautiful the plate is , what we enjoy is the food. After this dish, we deduce that the chef is not talented but trained and should be very interested in cooking, particularly Chinese food.

Thanks to the tasty soy sauce, this 'Steamed Garoupa w/ Glassy Noodle' is a tasty one. The garoupa is a fresh fish, but should be a farmed one, mainly because of the losen meat texture.

Drunken Chicken is displayed in an exaggerated long plate, with a small bowl of dipping sauce. Though the chicken is said to be fresh, the meat is not bouncy enough. Overall is average only.

All dishes are in a presentable manner. There is no exception for this Fried Rice (fried with Chinese Chickpeas and mushroom). Each piece of rice is dry enough. It seems that chicken broth has not been added.

Strawberry Puree w/ Basil Seeds topped w/ Bird's Nest is quite impressive. Apart from its presentation and red, we have selected ones with generous portion of bird's nest . It is quite interesting that appetizers and dessert are more outstanding in quality than the main dishes (which are average in taste and quality).

Gong Guan, a subway station in Taipei , is the first thing coming to my mind. We are eager to have a try in a speakeasy of Shanghai and fusion Chinese cuisines. It is an adventure to dine in Gong Guan as we do not know the exact dishes we eat, and no one of us has dined here before.

At first, six appetizers are served and all are very tasty. It is in fact a very good start. Though the portion of each appetizer is not too large, it is already enough for us to warm up for our meal. Soup and seven dishes follow. All dishes are displayed in an alluring manner and it surely would enhance the appetite of each diner. A pity is that we have not got any surprise from these dishes, not because it is not tasty, but because it should be much better in our expectation and in view of the average spending. We deeply believe and unanimously comment that the dishes are not outstanding and they are of average quality only. At last, the strawberry dessert is impressive at any rate.

It is quite interesting that the main dishes in a restaurant (no matter whether it is restaurant or speakeasy) are of average quality only, but the appetizers and dessert are palatable and superb. We think that the chef is not talented. But we would not query his devotion and enthusiasm in food cooking. To be frank, ambiance (service and decoration) is very good. It is surely a comfortable place for small group gathering. But for average spending of $350, there should be a lot of much better choices .
