Pork belly, jalapeno & pickled cabbage


Taigu is pretty great.  JM got pork belly with jalapeños and pickled cabbage which only had one flaw (it seemed to be headed to another table yet landed on ours, more on this in a moment). Nichole's noodles with beef, egg and tomatoes was even better, showing off Taigu's impressive housemade, handmade noodles.  The flame-grilled peppers were umami ne plus ultra.

Of course, every plus has its minus and Taigu has a rather noticeable one. We arrived at a touch before 6, thinking maybe with a spot of luck, we could make a 7 PM activity. We settled up the bill at Taigu around 8:10.  Just so you know, this good food takes time - the food here is quite good, maybe a little pricey, but good through and through. But you will wait for it, so bring the extended family, some old friends that you need to catch up with, or someone new that you want to get to know a whole lot better and just use the time for face-to-face interaction because you will likely be enjoying a nice meal out together for a while.
