Dolphin Bay is a tiny Taiwanese place that appears to have been decorated via the liquidation sale of a defunct waterpark. It also doesn’t have a liquor license, and it closes at 8:30. But still, you’ll love it. Start with the popcorn chicken, a dish that seems a little dry at first but which you end up loving, move on to the spicy wonton noodles topped with ground pork, and then wash it all down with one of their creamy teas that taste kind of like melted ice cream (in a good way).
