EVer Tried Kushin Bo?

Image
hola readers! i'm going to introduce a new, trendy eatery which is both value-for-money and delicious! and that is....KUSHINBO!located at 3rd level -Sky Garden of Suntec City!


We reached Suntec City at about 11.00pm , thought we were way too early to go to the restaurant as we booked 11.30pm which was exactly the time it opens for business. Hence, we decided to take our time to walk and shop around first. But once we reached Kushinbo at 11.25pm, there was already a super long queue of people waiting to enter! So ridiculously crowded!haha..wonder how long has these people been waiting hor?


But it wasn't long before we were ushered to our seats which is at a corner,Luckily! Immediately, we zoomed off to grab food! Everyone else too were already queuing to grab the freshest bite! I took a seafood kaminabe for a start as i saw many people taking it too and i believe that Singaporeans have excellent taste. Gugu took a big plate of assorted sushi and also a plate of tempura(prawns, mi…

Who says foodcourt's food can't be delicious?

Marina Square's Food Loft is there to cater to all your palates. Whether it's Japanese food, Korean food, Indian food, Local delights, the foodcourt has all to satisfy your hunger.
We went there last saturday at around 4.30pm which is about tea time. Wanted to go there to have a cup of coffee and share a roll of popiah but ended up eating our dinner there because their food is simply too tempting.
Upon stepping foot into the foodcourt, we caught sight of a girl happily placing her plate of korean set on a table. It was a Saba fish set which includes a bowl of rice, a mini plate of kimchi and ikan bilis with a huge grilled saba fish on hotpot. Who can resist the fish? It was really long and fat, almost twice the size of what most foodcourts sell. I was amazed with the generous portion of the fish indeed.So we bought a set to share. The fish was setted upon a bed of greens and onions which quickly got burnt due to the hotpot. yummy..the fish does not have a fishy taste and very ch…

台北市大安區四維路18號(近仁愛路圓環)TEL:02-27013225


This is a chinese restaurant serving emperor's food. It's really an honour to be able to dine in this restaurant. Luckily we found it..so happy!
It was raining very heavily and we had to take a taxi from Sun Yat Sen Memorial Station to King Join Restaurant. It was quite near though.
We were early so not many people, in fact, there was only 1 table occupied. We got a window seat and immediately ordered tea as i was freezing! Yummy! even the tea tasted good. The tea leaves were fragrant and the pot was placed atop of a teapot warmer with a tea light candle to keep the tea warm. The names of the dishes here are very unique especially the dim sums..we had 果仁奶酪, 驢打滾, 豌豆黃, 愛窩窩..well..pictures are below!hehe..

We shared a set menu inclusive of a 紫米饭 with pine nuts,金瓜汤,mini plate of chicken and another plate of mixed vegetables,3 dim sums and 果仁奶酪(chinese yogurt). After we had finished, we ordered another 3 kinds of dim sum and 八宝紫米甜品。We di…

Huahsi Night Market

Image
Definitely not one of your common markets. That is because- the specialty is snake dishes! There are also snake shows and one is particularly famous and has since appeared on the TV for many times already. We watched it for a while too, he put a rat into a container which contain some slimy, skinny snakes but the snakes did not eat it, does it mean he failed? I don't know..anyway, gugu and mama insisted that i drink a bowl of snake soup by myself as it is very tonic. I drank it, it was very soothing and light. The meat, however, was very hard, I wonder why?
We then had dessert at a very crowded stall. It is famous for their Muahchi and Yam soup. I tried both, of course,i'd never miss any good food. Hehe.. the yam soup was hot but i find the syrup too sweet, i'd much prefer it to be less sweet. The muahchi was very good. 2 huge muahchi sprinkled with finely chopped sweetened peanuts. Yummy, the muahchi was soft and chewy and warm even! That's what i like!

Shida Night Market And GongGuan Night Market

Image
They are just one MRT stop from one another. Only Gugu and 1 went to these 2 markets as mama was tired so we let her rest in the hotel. We went Gongguan first. There was nothing much, just a few food stalls, there were many fashion shops instead, nowonder there were so many youngsters shopping and munching there. So we decided to walk over to Shida. It was a long walk. We walked the wrong way at first but luckily asked for direction then carefully made our way to Shida. It's a really good work out, walking so much, hehe..We even asked a policeman!
But it was worth it lor, the food there was really quite a variety, 'tian bu la', 'che lun bing'(mee chiang kueh), 'Shui Jian Bao', Ice desserts...
We bought 6 che lun bings from an auntie..2 black sesame, 2 bacon and corn and 2 red beans..Not bad la, at least they were hot not cold! surprisingly got such flavours right? Wanted to eat a famous shui jian bao but there were so many people, gotta take queue somemore le…

Raohe Night Market

2nd Best and Most popular Night market in Taipei
How can you miss this superb place of food? Of course we went and we went twice even! No regrets! Some stalls were closed on the first trip as it was raining but luckily, we could try some of the best stalls!
1st Must Try- Pepper Biscuit also known as Hu Jiao Bing
There are two stalls but you will see at once by the queue which is the better one. You won't be able to imagine the queue. We were lucky that on the first night, there were few people and we managed to buy one to share which we regretted almost immediately. It was sooooooo GOOOOOOOOOOOOD! The filling was full and the chicken spicy and piping hot, SO FRESH! We loved it at our first bite. On the 2nd trip, we did not manage to eat anymore cuz the queue was sooo long! I was very upset but no choice lor.
2nd Must Try- Candied sweet potato and yam
This stall is located right at the end of the row of stalls. If you don't walk right to the end, you will miss it lor. We waited for …

Shihlin is one of the must go places to go when you're in taipei or else it will be a waste lor. Yes, of course we went! And we even went twice! To finish eating whatever is good there..which is like everything!haha. We did lots of research before going neh..and we follow as closely as possible to which stalls is worth a try.
1st Must Try- Da Bing Bao Xiao Bing
Do you know what this is? It simply is a popiah skin wrapping over a deep fried flour fritter and then sprinkled with your choice of flavoured-powder such as sesame, peanut and even savoury ones like meat. Sounds nice? Of course! it's very tasty and crunchy! I bet you've never eaten before and will woo and aah at your first bite.4 for NT$100
2nd Must Try- XXL chicken chop
You will see a long queue in front of this stall, so you will not miss it. The chicken chop is quite extraordinary big, bigger than s'pore's definitely. But they dun cut up for you, they just put the whole piece into a paper bag for you after a…

Taipei Day 1

i will be going to taiwan today!(24th nov 2007)I was so excited! it was my first time there and it will be with mama and gugu! We were super kiasu , you know, our flight was at 12.30 noon and we left home at 7.30am! We waited for taxi for quite a while but finally managed to get one. The trip to Changi Airport cost us S$22!
Upon reaching, we checked-in our luggages so that we need not have to lug them around the airport. We had 3 luggages! If i'm not wrong,they're about 50 kg altogether!scary hor? then we found a place to massage our feet and snack on some bread first. After that we ate Wang Jiao's nasi lemak and laksa. Pretty good lor, the laksa was hot but not the nasi lemak..hehe..then we walked around and took some photos. The DFS store at the departure hall had a Baileys promotion lor..a drink which me and gugu loves! The huge bottles (mint and caramel-new flavours) comes with a shaker, 2 more mini Baileys and a CD. A very good deal right? We hesitated to buy as the bo…

We all agreed that lunch was the time when we're all in the happiest mood because we get to eat! i think eating makes one happy..
We ordered the sashimi salad with sushi tei's sauce as we thought that it was very worth it..it comes in a big plate with relatively h…
