According to the website, Lee's Taiwanese menu was inspired by the street food from the famous Keelung Temple Street night market. When you visit this eatery, you will be able to taste mixed varieties of street fare such as braised beef noodles, Taiwanese sausages, fried chicken chop and cold desserts like taro crushed ice and mango crushed ice.
From the outset, Lee's Taiwanese has the Taiwan night market theme going: wooden table and stools occupy the interior and exterior (providing both indoor and outdoor seating), and flashy red lanterns adorn the ceilings (inspired from the night market culture).
Given that Lee's Taiwanese is in a shopping mall location and in Singapore (where nothing is really that cheap), prices are not like those in Taiwan (i.e. it's not cheap, but its not that expensive either). Though ala carte items can be a bit pricey (on their own), the set meals are actually quite reasonable (and worth it, coming with an appetizer and drink). Two sets meals with an upgrade of the appetizer (for one set) to sweet potato fries cost a total of S$43.30. So on average, you can expect to spend about S$20 per person.
Service was reasonable and prompt (i.e. from being seated, to getting orders placed, having the food served and payment).
Chicken Chop Rice + Snow Bean Curd + Red Tea
|The rice with accompanied the chicken chop (above). The rice was well-cooked, not hard and dry nor was it wet and mushy. The sauce that cover (a small) portion of the rice had pieces of pork and its fats; it was a too little.|
|Snow Bean Curd: This beancurd was a refreshing change from the usually beancurds that can be found in Singapore. It was served chilled and had a nice chewy yet soft texture to it. The seasoning was also good and enhanced the flavor of the beancurd.|
Saty & Pepper Chicken + Sweet Potato Fries + Milk Red Tea
|Sweet Potato Fries: Large chunky slices of sweet potatoes are fried and seasoned lightly. This is yet another addictive little treat (appetizer).|
