The “red cannelés”

25 Sep

I call this fruit like that because i don’t know its name and from above it looks like a cannelé to me. I asked the seller and he told me that’s a fruit that you can find in Taiwan during the winter mainly. To eat it, it must be read and hard, if it’s soft, it’s too late.

I pelled it and taste it. It’s nothing really great. That’s quite plain. I don’t know how to describe the taste. It has a little bit the socistancy of a wintermelon, but it’s not as sweet.

Persimmon again, but the hard one this time

25 Sep

I thought it was another fruit, but it was a persimmon. So why write a post about it? Because this persimmon isn’t exactly the same as the other one.

This one is twice as big as the small one, and its skin is hard. I mean, you can eat it, but it’s quite hard. And inside, there’re some seeds. Also, it’s less juicy and less sweet.

PS: a little joke for the one who always make it. Hope he’ll recognize himself.

The small white Melon

25 Sep

Another fruit. I thought it would be like a pear, it turns out that it was like a melon. Hum, i should seriously think about improving my survival instict, because if i were alone in a jungle, making mistakes like this could be fatal.

Anyway, the inside is really like a melon, but a small one, and it taste the same: between a melon and a “melon d’hiver”(winter melon?). Refreshing, and what’s great is that you can eat it by yourself since it’s small.

Orange Mango

25 Sep

I usually don’t like mango. So why did i pick it? Because i didn’t know it was a mango. In my supermarket, mango are yellow, red and green, but not orange.

Anyway, i picked it and found out later, while smelling it, that it was a mango. I wasn’t sure that i wanted to try it, but since there’re a lot of things that i like here, i tried…

First, the sweetness. The mango taste isn’t too strong…. The freshness of the fruit… Then the juice (so juicy that i put some on the walls ><“)…OMG!!!!!!! That’s just heavenly good!

I dislike mangos, i love orange mangos. Let’s be specific.

Kiwi Jaune

25 Sep

 

Yellow kiwi, or the best kiwi i’ve even had. The taste is sweeter but there is a light lemon taste that makes it awesome.

Garlic Bread at the 1rst bakery – NCCU

25 Sep

Salad without bread= impossible for me, so i tried to find some decent bread near NCCU, and the only bakery that proposes some real bread is the first one starting from NCCU main gate. You have 2 breads: the baguette which is really big (for 2 or 3 person at least) of the garlic bread, smaller, which is great for one meal. I went for this one.

The weather unfortunately makes it too soft for a crispy bread. It’s quite oily, but like all garlic bread i guess. However the taste is good, it reminds me of my first garlic bread in Australia. So it’s good if you want bread and not the time to go far. Just don’t expect a crispy bread.

Coffee Bun at Baker’s boy

25 Sep

I wanted to try this bun for a week now, but since it’s quite far from the university, i had to wait. So, i tried…and it was disappointing. It didn’t taste like coffe at all.

I bought one that just got out of the oven, so it was really hot and burning, that’s cool. But the inside is empty, there’s only a thin layer of some cream (in fact i don’t konw if this is the bun dough that’s not cooked or a cream). It’s sweet, smells sugar, and that’s all. No coffee taste at all. And i made a 45 minutes trip for this…
