Midnight in Paris…makes me think about the movie.

Anyway, talking about those “9 infinite delights”, they should give me back my money for liying. 9 macarons, yeah, but what kind of macarons is that, i wonder.

First, the shells were not nice: air bubbles, some undo themselves when you hold the macaron, they don’t all have the same size (a shame) and they’re empty. Then inside?

Vanilla was a way too sweet, some of the other were too dry. Just one or two were ok, but nothing exceptional. 

As fot the white chocolate mendiant, i thought the dried apricot flavor was too strong, and the chocolate a little too sweet, which ends up being like bad pepper flavor (not spicy but not a good taste, i can’t really explain what it is. It’s only with his white chocolate that i have the feeling that it is as if it was mixed with black pepper…I really don’t understand).

So far, what i have tried from this shop is not that good. I don’t think i will go back again.

 

Maryjane Pizza

31 Mar

In Shida area, you have a lot of small restaurants, and we decided to go there to eat a pizza. The restaurant is nice, with modern and colorful paintings on the walls, and a wide window let the light enters. You have quite a lot of choices in term of pizza, from vegetarian to meat-lover ones, cream or tomatoe sauce…

I picked the spinach, ricotta and caramelized onions pizza. The dough was thin and crispy the spinach was good. Overall, it’s one of the best pizza i’ve ever eaten so far, the bad point is that there wasn’t enough ricotta and maybe too much oil. However the size is perfect: not too big so that you don’t feel too heavy, and not too small. I can only recommand this one.

My friends also liked it, and with an unbeatable price range of 180- 250NTD, you can definetely run there.

NCCU – Jim’s burger

31 Mar

I’ve been there twice now, and it’s one of the foreign students’ favorite places. Jim’s burger is one of the few to provide salads, sandwiches, hamburgers, pancakes, toasts and bagels for a price under 100NTD. So of course all the girls run there when the university bell rings to have a chance to get a seat. Last time i tried there salad, which was nice with cheese, salad, pasta, tacos, olives, chicken, tuna or beef depending what you order. The only bad point is their sauce which is sweet and that i don’t really like, and which you can’t ask to be removed.

This time i tried a chicken-egg bagel, which was actually a chicken omelette bagel. The chicken was to totally cooked. I also discovered that i wasn’t really fond of bagels (i had never eaten any before). It was nice to try anyway. So if you crave for foreign food and well-balanced one, you definetely have to go there!
