Hunan Taste: Gaudy Restaurant

The food was excellent at Hunan Taste.

As we would expect at such an ornate palace of the palette.

Hunan Taste

Hunan Taste really stands out in Denville, for obvious reasons. Kind of pricey, but pretty good food. A quick and easy stop off Interstate 80 to see. In addition to the hokey decor, there are koi fish!

Hunan Taste's colorful Chinese exterior looks like the building was airlifted out of the Forbidden City.

Hunan Taste

Hunan Taste is a Chinese restaurant with over-the-top architecture and decor that will transport you from New Jersey to China. If there were such a thing as the National Register of Gaudy Places this would be on it. Soak in the kitsch, then share a flaming Volcano Love Bowl ("this tropical cocktail will eloquently enhance your ultimate romance") with your fellow travelers using two-foot-long straws before feasting on surprisingly good eats.

[Sir, 01/02/2013]

There's probably an "America Taste" restaurant somewhere in China, resembling the White House and decorated with hamburger-hoisting Uncle Sams and red white and blue bald eagles. We'd want to eat there, too.
