Rilakkuma Café 拉拉熊咖啡廳

So usually my expression shows a disgusted look when I walk into something that’s way too cute. Before kids and marriage, people would have to strangle me to go to a place like this. Let’s just say… having kids changed … Continue reading

Ippudo Ramen 一風堂

I’ve had this ramen in New York. This one I went to was in Taipei Main Station and tastes as good as the one in New York. If you want a decent ramen without guessing whether it’ll be good, this … Continue reading

Guest House 請客樓 – Michelin 2 Star Restaurant

This Michelin two star restaurant is easier to book than Tairroir or RAW. It’s been around and is on top of the Sheraton. It’s rather busy for lunch when we went and had a more traditional vibe. Dishes were traditional … Continue reading

茗香園冰室 – Ming Xiang Yuan (Dim Sum)

Stars 5/5 因為來的時候那家粵菜實在太難吃了,在家附近找了一家試試(老公香港人一直想吃吃看台式粵菜)。這家沒有選錯,實在很~好~吃~~~~~ 便宜,不油膩,真好吃。叫得每一道菜都很有水準。 We had to redeem’s Taiwan’s HK styled food because our first experience was too horrible. Found this restaurant near our apartment. All I have to say, Taiwan has redeemed itself on HK food. This is authentic … Continue reading

My 灶 – My Kitchen – Traditional Taiwan Cuisine

Stars: 5/5 大姊請客一向瘋狂,才幾個人點了一桌的菜,哈! 米其林推薦的傳統台菜。只能說,想吃傳統台菜,就來這裡。有名的是他們的滷肉飯。他們的烘蛋加上鮮蚵仔非常好吃。小朋友一口接一口。最後的古早味刨冰實在是香得不得了。點了太多,自己下面看看。其實點什麼都好吃。 困難的就是訂位而已。好險姊都訂好了。 想來的朋友,最要預約哦! This is a traditional Taiwanese restaurant and recommended by the Michelin guide. Their Taiwanese stewed pork rice is pretty famous but otherwise, all the dishes have been great and traditional. The shaved ice at … Continue reading

犁園湯包館 – Li Yuan Soup Dumplings

今天小表妹帶了我們來吃湯包。皮薄,料多,湯汁濃。小菜自取。 我們叫了三種湯包 (上海,蟹肉,生蠔)還有其他小菜 ,小朋友都愛吃。 小菜的豆干特別有味道。 小朋友把一盤都吃完了。最後的芝麻包很特別,做得是南瓜的形狀, 味道是QQ 的皮陪著微甜的芝麻。 小朋友各吃了兩顆。 因為已經吃過鼎泰豐,所以換換吃別家湯包也是很不錯的。 My cousin took us to this soup dumpling spot. We ordered regular shanghai style dumplings, crab dumplings and oyster dumplings and many other dishes like hot and sour soup, etc. … Continue reading

Sogo 三合院 – 港式飲茶 (好看不好吃)

1/5 Stars 說真的,有點失望。蝦子炸得油膩,脆皮雞就只有脆皮的優點,牛腩只有嫩可是味道不足,蝦餃是唯一過得去的。 唉~ 排隊長龍,服務一般般。 Disappointed in the taste. Fried shrimp was oily, crispy skin chicken had only crispy skin but not taste, beef was tender but lacking taste, but the redeeming factor were the shrimp dumplings which was a … Continue reading
