Jackfruit

12 Apr

Now i call the worse fruit ever: the Jackfruit, or Jacquier in French.

I had seen it a couple of times in Taiwan and i wanted to taste it, but then the winter came and it disapeared. So now that it was back, i jumped at the chance to buy one. Why did i ever wanted to do that? I don’t know.
But a grandpa advised me not to buy it, saying that a lot of people didn’t like it because it smelled a lot, lot, lot. But i said that anyway, i had to try….Old people are wise, that’s the only thing i can conclude from this.

First, this is really big, bigger than a watermelon and it has a lot of “peaks” so like even when you hold it it hurts.
Secondly, it’s really expensive because the price is by weight, so the shell is really heavy while what you can actually eat is small and soft.
Thirdly, it smells like hell. I have never seen any fruit that smelled so much. Even though it was in the fridge, i could smell it in all the room. Except for seafood and stincky tofu, i don’t think there’s something worse.
Fourthly, it is really soft inside and has a thin translucid layer that gives it an even worse taste.

In the end, one bite was enough, i had to throw the all thing it was too aweful to eat, and i had to put my garbage outside while waiting tomorrow to also throw it away.

NCCU – Another Japanese Restaurant

12 Apr

Japanese restaurants are the most popular ones around NCCU, or at least you have a lot. This time we tried a new one. It’s nice because you have a lot of choice concerning sushi and maki including vegetarian rolls, californian and philadelphia ones. You can also have a Don if you really don’t like fish and want something hot.

I chose a menu, with 5 suhi and 6 maki and one handroll. The sushi and maki are ok, the fish is a little too hot i think. I prefer it when the fish is still a little bit fresh, and even though you can’t cut it with your tongue, it’s still some really soft one, which i like. The nori however is a little too chewy to be really fresh. I have to say that i prefer this one to the one in Taipei 101 though.
