So my aunt took us to a restaurant that you actually have to book 2-3 months in advance in order to get a table. There is no menu and all the dishes that come out depending on the executive chef and the produce for that day.
Fancy piped wasabi!
Batter fried soft shell crab with a light curry sauce. This dish was delicious. The crab was crunchy from the batter, but soft on the inside while the sauce was light and sweet and not overbearing at all.
The delicious soft bread that came with the crab in curry sauce. Even the bread was awesome as it was extremely soft and fresh.
Refreshing shrimp spring rolls with a sweet and tangy thai sauce.
Rice dish with white tuna sashimi chunks, shredded imitation crab meat, dried pork, fish roe, cilantro, sesame seeds, and dried seaweed flakes. All the components of this dish paired really well with each other.
Sashimi with sweetened kidney beans, sweetened black beans, abalone with mayonnaise, and stewed chicken feet.
Smoked Pork Ribs in a Black Pepper Sauce.
Black chicken stew that has been stewed in a traditional clay pot for hours. One of my favorite soups!
Delicately butter grilled fish over a bed of fire. The fire is under the stone slab. Too bad I couldn’t position the camera at the right angle!
Shrimp and noodle salad with an intricate spun sugar garnish. The salad and jumbo shrimp was pretty good. But I’m not sure the spun sugar combined into the dish was a very good idea….
Assortment of fresh fruit.
Milk pudding with a blueberry sauce hidden under a bed of spun cotton candy. This is probably the best milk pudding I’ve ever had.
This was seriously one of the best meals I’ve ever had. Not only was all the food delicious, the presentation was really extravagant. And as all true foodies know, we eat with our eyes first.
What’s the best meal you’ve ever had? And where?!
Vacationing in Taiwan Food Frenzy Epi 40. Pearl Milk Tea Ice Cream Bars.
Only in Taiwan will you find bubble tea ice cream bars… Strangely enough, it really does tastes like original milk tea. The white side of the bar is vanilla ice cream and cleverly serves to cleanse the palatte so that you can taste the milk tea again.
Vacationing in Taiwan Food Frenzy Epi 32. Watermelon Galore!
The best thing you could eat on a hot sunny day would probably have to be juicy watermelon. Watermelon is a thirst quencher and it has a good dosage of vitamin C and vitamin A. It’s not only juicy and sweet, but it’s low on calories for those looking for a healthy treat. You can really get watermelon all year round nowadays, but I would have to say that summer is still the prime time for watermelon. You can’t walk into any morning market in Taiwan and not spot a fruit stand with massive watermelons split open in red juicy goodness. The watermelons in Taiwan are double of those in the States at half the price! Can we say food heaven?
Vacationing in Taiwan Food Frenzy Epi 31. Hot Oil Dumplings.
Another one of our appetizers from Din Tai Fung. Dumplings swimming in hot chili oil. It was tasty, but not the best hot oil dumplings I’ve ever had. The best hot oil dumplings I’ve ever had comes from a restaurant called Szechuan Ace in New Jersey.
