Restaurant Sanshia

24 Oct

The Taiwanese students brought us to a typical restaurant. I was able to recognize to dishes that i had already tried, but the discovery of the day was the fried tofu (the biggest picture). That’s really good! Otherwise, as usual: a tofu soup, cabbage, tofu and oysters (didn’t try this one, you know why), chicken, omelette with shrimps, pig blood, bamboo, mushrooms, beef and onions, and beef and cabbage. Nice, but the beef and onion wasn’t that great because of the meat.

Bull Horn Croissant

24 Oct

I’m not gonna talk about the next pear as some people might say ;p, but about the special bread of Sanshia: the Bull Horn Croissant. So what is it? Basically, it has the shape of a real and plain croissant, except that the extremities are a little more curved. That’s for the shape.

As for the taste, well, forget about croissant. It’s more like a bun. I tried 4 Bull horns croissants (2 melons because i was disappointed by the first one, one chocolate and one plain + i tasted pineapple, strawberry, tea and red bean) and my favorite are the melon ones.

What’s great is that you have a lot of flavors: chocolate bread, melon bread, pineapple bread, tea bread, coffee bread, plain, and other with filling: chocolate, red bean, green bean, strawberry… Everyone can find its favorite.

I like the crispy thing on the top, but the bun in itself isn’t really special and quite heavy compared to a croissant that is flaky and “ventilated”.

In fact, the more i get to know about Taiwanese pastries, the more i tend to think that they have a lot of great ideas for their desserts. However they are behind concerning the taste compared to French ones -according to me- (except for pineapple cake, suncake and shaved ice :d).
