We Stay In Midtown Richardson, Taipei

RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE XIMENDING and the hotel we stayed for three nights is called MIDTOWN RICHARDSON.  Very convenient for us, that is shopping and eating, what else!  LOL.. The hotel includes buffet breakfast in the morning, we hardly ate anything in there, too many people and the food was nothing to shout about.  We stayed in a family room, so comfortable and nice, I credited my son for that... and I nearly jumped up when I heard the rate!  Okay, not disclosing here...
For the next few days, we walked around here and there... 
Queuing up for food... they definitely did some homework before the trip... 
Yes, there is a sign here for the Q... 
We arrived here using Uber.. or was it Grab... or MRT.. I forgot!
We had these.. supposedly to be very famous for their pork rice with soup... 
All meat and yet the Taiwanese are so slim generally... 
We had this in a night market... 
Mua Chee... that is her favourite... we had these twice... 
Yes, it was in the reviews that this is good... 
Something like Naan with Yau Chau Kwai... 
Taken with fresh soyabean.... 
I can accept this ... 
BUT...
Definitely not this... I cannot accept the taste...
With savoury soya bean?  hhhmmm... 
Nevertheless I tried..
Queuing up again each day... but no worries, actually they were pretty quick... 
Everyday we have this... simply the best!
And then desserts too... 
More to come next.....

  1. Staying somewhere where good food is an advantage. Savoury soya bean? Not sure I could acquire the taste or not. Lol.

  7. A hotel which is located close to where the food is, is always the best hotel. :D

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL... 

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we
