Grenada

24 Nov

First time eating a Grenada. I didn’t know if i had to remove all the seeds inside the red things, but then when i did it, it took me so long, that i just decided to eat them. I mean, nodoby would be insane enough to buy a fruit where you have to remove all the seeds like in Grenada, the product wouldn’t be sold. Nice anyway, and nice colors.

7-eleven: Western Chocolate Cake

24 Nov

When i decide that a day is going to be unhealthy, well, it will really be, so to continue after the cheesecakes, i went to get a chocolate bum from 7-eleven. Not western-like at all, it’s more like a chiffon cake with a thin little chocolate cream in the middle. So far that’s the most chocolated thing i’ve tasted in the area, as here everything “with chocolate” actually means “without chocolate taste”. Light, that’s not bad, i actually prefer it over the chocolate cake i tried in the first bakery.

Mom’s Pie – NCCU delivery

24 Nov

Since today i finished my exam and wasn’t really happy about the Chinese one, i decided that i needed something sweet. And, lucky me, tiday is Thanksgiving day. So the “famous” pie seller around the university that usually only comes on Tuesday and Thursday from 3pm to 8pm stayed longer today. I was finally able to taste these pies that everyone talk about in the area and that taipei food blogs also know. I was then expecting much about these. I was quite disappointed.

I chose 3 (i’ve been wanting to try them for 3 months now, so of course, i had to try several!): Pinapple coconut cheesecake, coffee cheesecake and strawberry banana pie. I must say that was the first time that i remember eating a cheesecake (i ate once in NYC but i can’t remember the taste, so..). I think that i just don’t like the cake in itself, because both cheesecake weren’t that good. I mean, it’s easy, you can’t really taste the fruit or coffee flavors and i don’t really enjoy this texture that’s creamy but heavy and too much cheese flavor. That’s the cake in itself that i don’t like, so i can’t really judge it, since that’s also my first time eating one.

However the strawberry banana pie was ok. Not exceptional though. I will not travel around the city to get one, and i don’t think i’ll buy another neither. I ate 3 and i was still hungry as if i hadn’t eaten anything! It’s still too “American like” dessert, which are usually not my cup of tea, except a few sweets.
