Formosa is one of Austin's tops, and it's tucked tidily into the city's center. Huge lunch portions for a song, and one of the best hot and sour soups around (best garlic sauce, bar none). Chef Robert Chang has a deft touch at the wok, and where he really shines is with the House Specials and the ever-changing chalkboard, items like Fish Formosa (with asparagus and crawdads), jumbo prawns with the ginger-tomato sauce, or anything with fruits. Silky, clean, flavorful sauces without a trace of grease!
