I am truly flattered by all the recent "follows" on my Taiwan collection... your appreciation is my fuel and I will try to write as much as I can of what I have seen, tasted, and experienced in the treasure island (寶島) aka Taiwan.  (In fact, I just came back from a 3-week business trip from Taipei so I got lots to share, just not enough time...)

In the past, when I go to Taiwan, food that immediately comes to mind are local snacks, cheap food, and beef noodles!  Rarely does the word "fine dining" comes to mind.  Recently, it has been changed as a wave of modern western restaurants opened in Taipei.  The good news - most of them are quite affordable - thanks to the lower cost of living in Taiwan compared to its neighbors such as Hong Kong, Japan, etc.  I have been wanting to try MUME ever since it has opened.  The chefs' CV alone is impressive enough and there were a lot of raving reviews.  Needless to say, my expectation is high.  Verdict:  I was NOT disappointed!

Kim's Food Korea Cafe

It's hard to keep up with the Macau dining scene sometimes.  Luckily, I have friends who kept me up to speed.  The last few months have been hectic and didn't really have time to dine out when I visit my folks back home.  Finally last weekend, my friends took me to one of the most popular Korean restaurants (among youngsters) in Taipa, Macau - Kim's Food Cafe.

Tortilla de Patatas (Spanish Omelette)

Every so often, I like to try new recipes.  To decide what I want to make, I usually look at what I have in the fridge.  That night, I had eggs, onion, and potatoes.  Immediately, I thought about making Tortilla de Patatas (Spanish Omelette).

Night Markets of Taipei (3): Shida Night Market (師大夜市)

Another night market I find myself going a lot is the Shida Night Market (師大夜市).  Compared to the other night markets, there are less food stands but it's a great night market for the ladies who love to shop!  The limited number of food stand doesn't mean the food here is bad.  In fact, quite the contrary in my opinion.

Pickled Eggplant (油漬茄子)

As my last post suggested, I am into bread making lately.  I am not a jam person, nor do i like Nutella, peanut butter, etc.   However, I love sandwiches, cold cut platters, cheeses, etc.  Immediately, I thought of a recipe book I got from the Hong Kong Book Fair last year and made one of the recipes - Pickled Eggplant.
