I remember the hype of Jo Jo Taipei when it first opened. Word of mouth about the restaurant spread like wildfire throughout the Chinese community - especially among the Taiwanese - and crowds of people frequently lined up trying to get into the restaurant.
I think the hype has died somewhat, maybe partly due to the recession. At 6:30pm on a Monday night recently, only two of the tables were filled. By 8pm, however, the place was about half full, completely with Asians. Last night I visited with my Taiwanese friend. After seeing the menu, we went a little berserk and ordered three dishes plus the infamous shaved ice dessert. Needless to say, we were stuffed.
amazing shaved ice I had in Taiwan.
But I digress . . .
Definitely try this place out, if nothing else at least try the shaved ice!!! Mmmmmmm . . . .
