Beancurd with some yam flour thing
Mango Snow Dessert With Ice-Cream

Rating: 4.5/5.

Taste: Desserts are tasty cos they are sweet with loads of sugar and flavoring. But the beancurd is really soft and silky. All other desserts are a bonus. Great for cooling down during summer!

Portion: Average

Price: See pic

RTE: Yes if still have stomach space… Guys are not like girls… always got spare stomach for desserts! ;P

牛轧堂 (Beef Noodles) – Taipei, Taiwan


Went to Kunming Street as I was recommended the best beef noodles at 牛店 which is just across from this shop that I’m writing about but they do not open in the afternoon after 2.30pm and reopens only at 5.30pm. I guess their business must be damn good cos they were busy preparing for that night’s business. Hence no choice, I crossed the street and spotted another beef noodles shop. The deco looks neat and decent and the boss of the place warmly welcomed us to take a seat upstairs after we placed our orders.

Shop front… Good thing is, they don’t have too many things on the menu to confuse the customers.
天香牛肉面 Heavy broth beef noodles
清炖牛肉面 Light broth beef noodles
大豆干和卤蛋 Braised beancurd and eggs
Bill… Pretty good prices

Video of the tenderness of the beef can be seen here – http://youtu.be/f7lVJvAM7Dw

Rating: 4/5.

Taste: Pretty good I must say. Specially made broth from gouqizi, vegetables and chicken, boiled for hours. Beef slices were tender and melts in your mouth. Noodles are also specially made for the shop. The side dishes of beancurd and eggs are nice too!

Portion: Average

Price: TWD140 per bowl. A lot cheaper than the popular ones which starts from TWD180 onwards…

RTE: Maybe if I’m around the area but then again, there are so many food places in Taipei… and only 1 stomach… ;P

Location: No. 134-2 Kunming Street, Wanhua District, Taipei City 108. Tel: (02)2331-0397. Opens daily from 1100-2200hrs.


美膳坊海鲜火锅饭店 @ Taipa, Macau


My friends brought me to this place which is located in the middle of the 手信街 of Taipa Island. From the outside, it looks like just an another seafood restaurant. But this restaurant has dishes which are really tasty and good!

Located along this 'Souvenir Street' of Taipa Island... Not Macau City's Souvenir Street.
Fresh steam prawns... Lovely sweet taste
Fwah! Never tried this before... This fish is not available in SG... In China it's known as the Tofu fish... very very soft and you can actually eat the bones too... The way they have done it here is really nice and tasty.
Fried Prawn Omelette
I was surprise they have this soup here. Pig's Stomach Soup with Salted Vegetables. Very teochew and it's peppery. Really missed this!
Roasted Pigeons. Very nice and juicy. 😉
Stir Fried Assorted Mushrooms... This is an excellent dish for mushroom lovers like me!
The last time I ate this dish was when my Cantonese grandma was still around. Very typical cantonese dish of steam chicken with ginger, chinese mushroom and spring onion. What's lacking are slices of dried red dates which will make the dish more authentic! But I'm happy anyways!

Rating: 5/5.

Taste: Love the way they cook here. No wonder it’s a regualr place for my friends.

Portion: Slightly above average.

Price: Didn’t pay for it but affordable when you have more people eating together.

RTE: Definitely!

Location: Just tell the cab drivers 手信街 of Taipa Island. It’s a short street, just stop at the middle. 🙂
