Situated just outside Goldhawk Road station, a mere stroll from Shepherd's Bush Common, Ho-Ja stands as a Taiwanese culinary gem in the heart of Shepherd's Bush. Taiwanese food is loved for many reasons, as a vibrant and diverse culinary experience that blends flavours from Chinese, Japanese, and indigenous influences. Renowned for street food delicacies like bao buns, beef noodle soup, and bubble tea, Taiwanese cuisine features rich textures, bold spices, and a harmonious balance of sweet, savoury, and umami flavours.

This vibrant restaurant offers an enticing array of starters, inviting diners into a world of bold flavours. From the delightful crunch of Ho-Ja chicken popcorn and crispy king oyster mushrooms to the scrumptious pleasures of fried prawn dumplings and Japanese-style chicken wings, the menu is a symphony of tastes. For those seeking heartier options, indulge in pork katsu, takoyaki (octopus balls), stewed pork with rice, stewed eggs, and edamame with black pepper.

Those who love a bento box will find joy in the meticulously crafted combinations, each paired with two vegetarian sides and steamed rice. Options range from the aromatic 3-cup chicken bento and succulent chicken teriyaki to the unique and wonderful taste of grilled eel and flavorful braised pork with preserved vegetables.

Ho-Ja rolls showcase a variety of fillings, from vegetable and beef to Taiwanese sausage and prawn, each accompanied by Taiwanese pancakes and mixed greens. For something warm and comforting, the noodle and soup options include pork dumplings and beef, stir-fried udon with seafood or duck, and the comforting Taiwanese meatball soup.

Explore the unique selection of bao buns, featuring vegetables, roasted duck, and crispy prawns. Cap off your Taiwanese feast with delightful desserts like lychee pudding with pulp, deep-fried sesame balls, and Japanese steamed cheesecake.
