Taipei Tokyo Cafe Review

In another nod to the changing times, sushi and Chinese cuisine are now enjoyed where Woburnites once enjoyed a slice from the old Woburn House of Pizza. It's taken me two visits to get a chance to write up this fairly new addition to Downtown Woburn; I think I was really just looking for an excuse for a return visit to sample their tasty fare and chat with Woburnite.com's founder Fel Medeiros.

Both of our visits to the Taipei Tokyo Cafe were during lunch time.  Chinese food is not new to Woburn, of course, but this new spot is clearly aiming to distinguish themselves from standard Chinese fare.  Their luncheon buffet is beautifully presented, with each dish carefully displayed on stylish, small square white plates.  In fact, Fel was hesitant to dive into this arrangement during our last visit, so I quickly broke the ice.

I was in the mood for something lighter, and there plenty of healthy and tasty options to choose from.  I focused on chicken with mixed vegetables, beef with broccoli, and a stir fried baby bok choy that nicely cleansed the palate.  In addition to such traditional Chinese offerings, there is also a sushi bar.  While I'm new to sushi, the California roles I sampled were fresh and tasty; I was sure to heap on plenty of the good wasabi and ginger.

In addition to the very good food quality, I was very impressed with the job they did renovating the former pizza joint.  Large windows afford a nice view of Woburn Square, an increasingly pleasing site these days.  The interior is tastefully decorated with dark wood trim, and just the right touch of Asian decor.  All in all, Taipei Tokyo Cafe is a great place to grab a relaxing lunch in Woburn Square (I'll have to get back and try dinner soon!).
