Local Food At The Dark Palace, Taichung

RECOMMENDED BY TOUR GUIDE...

Our tour guide is a husband-and-wife team.  Both of them fetched us from the airport.  The wife is a Malaysian but married to a Taiwanese man and both of them were "hired" by us for two days.  They recommended their local food and took us to places where locals go.  During the two days, we had lunch with them and one of them is called Dark Palace in Taichung. 

This time we were smarter, we did not order one main dish for each of us as on our first day...
Dark Palace Taiwanese Gourmet...
Serves different types of noodles and rice meals... 
As usual, the mother sits while waiting to be served... LOL... 

We had noodles..
Something like Pan Mee in Ipoh... 
We had rice too... with fried chicken....
Pork chop rice...
Looks good, eh....
Three bowls for the four of us... 
The portion is just nice.... 
Saving up our tummy space for desserts next!

  4. They were certainly very generous with the pork and the chicken. Can't say any looked enticing - they sure seemed a lot nicer in the menu!

  5. They are sure generous. So much meat on top of the noodle and rice. Hardly could see the noodle and rice. It is nice to taste local food.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe
