Hot Wok Cafe 首都 – St. Louis, MO (Chesterfield, MO)

I would give it a 4 star if it wasn’t the price. We came here on Saturday for their exclusive Taiwanese Brunch. This is probably 1 of the only place that offers Taiwanese style brunch in St. Louis.

This place might be a little hard to find, its hidden inside a plaza. There were a few students and Asian families here Saturday morning. Place is clean and service was okay.

Taiwanese Brunch (too many people there, hard to take individual pictures)

We ordered:

2 Soy Milk @ $2.29 each – a big bowl to be shared. soy milk was served hot, and full of soy taste, add sugar according to your taste.
2 Chinese Cruller @ $2.29 each – big and fluffy. very good but not too the point thats worth $2.29 for fried dough.
Beef Sesame Bun @ $4.99 – lack of flavor.
Green Onion Pancake @ $3.99 – smelled really good, served hot, soft and chewy.
Beef Noodle Soup @ $10.00 – small bowl, very little beef, doesn’t even taste really authentic. definitelyl not worth $10.
Spicy Beef Tendon @ $8.99 – taste ok.
Five Spiced Beef @ $10.50 – small portion, nothing special.
Century Egg and Pork Porridge @ $6.00 – really disappointed, very little eggs, lack of flavor.
2 Sticky Rice Roll @ $3.99 ea – probably the best part of the meal, sticky rice was cooked right, perfect amount of pork floss, egg, fried dough. I like it, but still thing its expensive!!

The above items are at least 37%-45% more expensive compare to Chicago. For this price, I will only come here once a long while.
