Henry's Taiwan

119 E. Southern Ave. Tempe, AZ 85282 | Tempe | 480-968-2281

Location Description:

The first restaurant outside of Seattle from chef and restaurateur Henry Ku, this accessible, affordable, and instantly enjoyable Taiwanese eatery blends Ku’s memories of Taiwan with the French cooking techniques he learned in the States. Close to Arizona State University, Henry’s mostly 20-something Chinese clientele keep the tiny restaurant buzzing, tucking into a variety of street snacks like Taiwanese sausage, sticky rice rolls, and the notorious Taiwanese snack that packs a stench, stinky tofu. Many of the very good main dishes — black pepper chicken tenders, squid pottage, and Three Cup Chicken — are served up in portion sizes that mean leftovers for the next day.
