Typhoon Bubble Tea Taiwanese Cuisine - Richmond

Typhoon resides in the shadow of the massive Continental Seafood Restaurant so that you might easily miss it. That would be such a shame.
It's a busy little Taiwanese place with several pages of bubble tea choices on their menu in addition to some savoury favourites. We arrived on a Sunday evening to a nearly full house but got seated right away. 
We ordered Deep Fried Tofu to start. It arrived crisp and hot with a spicy sauce and a sweeter Hoisin type sauce. A little salt on the tofu would not have been amiss but the sauce made up for it. 
We had the Five Spice Beef with Chinese Pankade which was also tasty. It was cut into 4 manageable pieces which wanted to unravel but that's OK. The pancake was excellent with a nice chew while the beef was quite tender. 
My choice was the Satay Lamb Fried Noodle. Its arrival was accompanied by the slight scent of fish sauce but that fish sauce blended into the taste of the dish and was not noticeable as a flavour. All of the elements of this were enjoyable.
Marie's choice was the Sesame Oil Chicken Hot Pot. This dish started with a spectacular broth redolent of chicken, mushrooms and the slight taste of sesame oil and ginger. Excellent! The treasures within included fish balls, greens, enoki mushrooms and some very tender tasty chicken. At under $12 this seemed like a bit of a bargain. In fact, everything here is well priced and decent. Service was efficient and to the point if not ebullient. Tables and chairs were comfortable enough even if they are a bit close together.
For what it's worth, we give Typhoon a 3 1/2 out of 5 and hope to come back for bubble tea another time.
