Ilha Formosa, beautiful island. The name was given by the Portuguese when they discovered the island of Taiwan in 1544. Due to its great ethnic diversity, Taiwan presents the world with a food culture of a wide variety of choices. Taiwanese cuisine itself is often associated with influences from China, Japan, and North America, but also blends in its unique flavour and local characteristics. Beef Noodle Soup distinguishes itself from its Chinese peers. Teppanyaki noodle and Nabeyaki Udon can be easily found in eateries. Western fast food concepts like Fried Chicken Burger and triangle sandwich gain recognition in daily breakfast yet in new appearance. Welcome to the world of Formosan Gourmet.
“This is a gem in a sea of restaurants. I have never tried Taiwan food before but we are already making plans to come back again. The flavour was amazing in everything we tried. The service and information about each dish was beyond any place I have been before. A wonderful experience and look forward to go again <
Incredible food and highly attentive service. We heard about this restaurant from a review on CBC and I’m so glad we gave it a shot. Everything was delicious. Try the popcorn chicken, sweet potato fries (actually made with sweet potatoes instead of yams), and the braised pork belly over rice. Actually, try anything. It was all amazing. Try it and love it!!! We can’t wait to go back.
My family and I love Formosa Bistro. The food is outstanding and the people working there are very warm and helpful.
Quiet, great service, food is fun and tasty. Try the spicy dumplings!
Loved it. The lady who served us explained Taiwanese cuisine, assisted us to select items from the menu and was friendly and engaging. The food was very, very good. Will be back.
Can’t say enough good things about the delicious food and friendly owners of this restaurant! The service was fantastic. Will definitely be back again soon.
Popcorn chicken was pretty damn good. that bao gua(kaagura chicken?) or whatever was interesting but i liked it so did my girlfriend. paid around 45 bucks for some decent sides. didnt get a main dish . just the sides alone was good.,
Good food and lovely staff. We had a variety of food – I recommend the braised pork rice bowl and the Taiwanese popcorn chicken. The chicken has a distinctive clove/cinnamony, sweet and savoury flavour. Great prices as well.
Our waitress was very attentive. She explained things on the menu and made great recommendations. Food was delicious. Great experience.
Great Taiwanese food! It’s nice to finally have a great one in Edmonton. Service was wonderful and knowledgeable about menu. Their Popcorn chicken and Sweet potatoe (not yam!) fries really DO taste like donuts! You have to try them! Steamed fish was delicious and rice side dish was accompanied by other little side dishes which was a nice surprise.
