A taste of Taiwan in Wellington

To celebrate our last night in Wellington (and Luke’s last day of work) we went to Lychee Cafe with Pearl. Lychee is Wellington’s only Taiwanese restaurant. It’s a bit out of the main restaurant area so not many people know about it. It’s a shame we discovered it on our last night as the food was great.

The portions were huge and quite cheap for Wellington. The vast selection of teas and bubble teas also made it feel more authentic. Here’s what we sampled.

Vegetarian dumplings, Taiwanese sausages, and salt and pepper squid

Szechuan eggplant

Taiwanese style pork belly and garlic bok choy

We smiled for the camera but we were feeling a bit sad as we had to say goodbye to Pearl.

There will be lots of this kind of food in Taiwan but sadly no Pearl. We’ll miss you!
