NCCU – Take-away Lunchbox

25 Apr

I tries these take-away lunch boxes that some grandma sell outside university for 50NTD. You can choose between rice, noodles (big, thin ones), red or white ebly. I didn’t know that so i picked the first one they gave me, the white ebly one. I’m not really fond of it. I dislike seaweed and the mushroom was weirdly cooked. As for the ebly, it was overcooked (a way too sticky, it was nearly like purée). The tofu was ok.

The main advantage: that’s really cheap.

Vapiano

25 Apr

I had never been there, but i like the principle of using a card to order everything you want in free service and to scan it to pay at the end. I picked a salad and asked for the sauce to be appart, as i’m really not fond of the sauce in Taiwan (always sweet). I prefered mixing olive oil and balsamic on my own. The salad isn’t fresh though.

As for the dessert, i picked a Tiramisu with was awkwardly with alcool. The coffee flavor was nearly non-existant. Definetely not a good one.

But you have an amazing view and the restaurant in nice too, so for the environment i recommand it, but this is more an American style italian restaurant than an Italian restaurant. If it goes for chain restaurants like these, i really prefer Pizza Del Arte for the food.

NCCU- Juicy Bun

25 Apr

The bread is too sweet and not too fresh, but the bacon and steak were nice. WHat i liked too is that you can decide wether to put the onion and tomatoes in your burger. The french fries were ok, but not amazing. And it’s sooo huge! I had some trouble to finish it, which is quite nice because it’s pretty cheap and you have a lot to eat.

Mom’s Pie 2

25 Apr

Cranberries cheesecake
Not well-balanced: the cheesecake was too salted which made the cranberries “jam” even sweeter. So the overall was too sweet.

Peach pie
the dough wasn’t enough cook (i don’t know why this one in pertuclar, but the dough was horrible because of that. Then it’ syrup peach, so the flavor isn’t as good as with real ones.

Oatmeal pie
I was quite surptised by it, it’s my favorite of them. A nice flavor and the dough was cooked enough.

Coconut pie
This one is ok, except that i don’t really enjoy the coconut inside which is translucid…

Almond Turnover

25 Apr

I used to dream about being able to eat a Galette des rois everyday, now it’s possible! The Almond turnover is the perfect thing for “frangipane” lovers like me. You have the almond filling with the pastry dough, a little more puffed than the one for the galette, which is really nice. I think that’s a good idea because usually we can only findapple turnover.
