The One: Decent Food, Decent Prices

Diana Chan November 13, 2011 Bubble Tea, Cafe, South Burnaby, Taiwanese, Three Beakers

Since my mechanic is right beside The One, I needed somewhere to kill time. The closest thing was The One for some Taiwanese food. Since I was starving from a long day of school already, I was ready to chow down with my sister. They are known for their HUGE slush drinks that are super tall.

Preserved Egg With Tofu ($3.25) is definitely not for everyone. It has 2 slices of tofu with preserved egg on top with a sweet sesame sauce. I really liked it but I found that their yolk could have a be more creamy.

Meat Sauce on Steam Rice with Vegetable ($6.50) comes with side dishes too. Really good value since you get the bowl of rice and meat in addition to the 4 side dishes. Good price.

The One Wonton Soup with Noodle ($7.95) was quite horrible this time around. The bowl was HUGE and had so much noodle that I found it a very hard challange to finish it all. The wontons tasted so-so and bland. Also, the soup tasted like it had a lot of MSG inside.

Overall, I think a few dishes are a hit and a miss, but the pricing is very good.

Words of Wisdom:

  • Large portions
  • Under $10
  • Fried Chicken Nuggets!
  • Free parking in the front lot

Diana started Foodology in 2010 because she just eats out everyday! She started a food blog to share her love of food with the world! She lives in Vancouver, BC and adores the diversity of food around her. She will go crazy for churros and lattes.

  • The thing about this restaurant that freaks me out (in a good way) is how they serve their slushies like mile high up. I was so freaking worried that it would tumble. I remember seeing a photo for Gastrofork’s blog and so I decided to go and try it out after.

    That sucks about the wonton. It’s like the one of things to measure how good a restaurant is at making comfort food.

      I think the slushies are the best thing about this place!
