The best Taiwanese food comes from a small strip-mall in Beaverton OR. Taiwan Eats used to be an amazing food truck and has recently moved to more permanent digs. The milk tea is heavenly. It is also the reason I can't get to sleep until daybreak on many nights. Worth it.
Alas, the best Taiwanese pineapple tea cakes are my wife's. If you visit, she can make you a batch. They are very labor intensive, and very worth it! YUM!!
I'm an applied-math-research Ph.D. and serial startup founder. I am a recognized computer security expert, fortunate to join the ranks of many, great CTO's. I've founded and seed-funded multiple, successful, VC-backed companies. I'm still at it!
