Sun Dance – Xiamen, Guangdong, China

Advertisements

This last entry wraps up my write ups for Xiamen good foods. Too much to eat, too small stomach! Will definitely be back!

Anyways, came to know about this place as it’s much talked about in Xiamen. So I decided to check this place out for lunch before I head back. Went in the place, pretty empty on a weekend lunch, found a table near the door as I had my luggage with me. And boy did I regret that. It was warm near the door and the air-condition was not strong enough during summer. Nevertheless I placed my orders and went around snapping pics of the place. Check out the pics and review below:

Cafe front
From the door
Inside the cafe
I think this is a smoking area
Many books for reading
Stage for ad hoc performances at night
More CDs
Loads of CDs… some are super classics
PC for surfing
View from the other end
Sweet basil pizza, quite unique and tasted pretty good
Spaghetti Bolonese – tasted pretty good also and the sauce is nice and thick.
My latte… a total disappointment… auto machine.
Loads of coffee specks at the bottom
My damage RMB$140, discounted RMB8

Rating: 3.5/5.

Taste: 4/5. Food was good. Coffees really bad. I reckon they sell more alcohol at night than coffees.

Portion: 3/5.

Ambience: 4/5. Very homely feel. Not very comfy though.

Service: 2/5. Very short handed and slow.

Price: RMB140

RTE: Not very likely… Xiamen has got too many good food places.

SO FREE WOOD FIRED PIZZA (柴烧比萨) – Taipei, Taiwan

Ok I know this has been dragging for some time and finally I’m getting to write about the food I tried when I was in Taipei.

This So Free Wood Fired Pizza place came to me as a surprise actually. I was walking around Ximending looking around for a place to have something light, then this little restaurant caught my eye. Not because of the custom built big stone oven that is right at the counter in front of the shop, but also the crowd that is patronizing the restaurant at a weird timing of 3 to 4pm… So I decided to check out what they offer on their menu.

According to the manager in charge of that Ximen outlet, he told me the restaurant serves only organic vegetarian pizzas and only pizzas in one standard 8″ size. Best thing is, all the pizza bases and sauces are made in house.! With that I chose the Pesto Mushroom Pizza, and documented the following:

Rating: 5/5. For its freshness, originality and great taste!

Portion: Average

Taste: Really nice and fresh! Love it!

Price: Damn I really can’t remember but price is definitely very affordable (below SGD$10)

RTE: Definitely! Hope to be back in Taipei soon!

Location: 台北市万华区西宁南路50巷1号 Tel: (02) 2314-6225 Opens daily from 1200-2200hrs.
