Veggies & cheese Omelette

4 Jul

I had some eggs left…inspired from the family version of the piperade, but with other veggies since i didn’t have them.

Ingredients:
– Green Aspargus
– Broccoli
– 2 eggs
– 1/2 slice of Bayonne ham
– 4 really thin slices of camembert
– pepper
– 1 tablespoon of olive oil
(- butter for the omelette if you want)

Cook your aspargus and bocolis in a pan with the olive oil. Remove them from the pan. Beat your eggs and add the butter if you want to, the ham. Empty it in your pan with the remaining of oil from your veggies, quickly add the cheese and the vegetables. You can do an omelette or like scrambled eggs, as you prefer. Once cooked, add the pepper. You shouldn’t need any salt because of the ham and the cheese.

NCCU – Pomodoro

4 Jul

The italian restaurant around the campus. I’ve heard their pizza were really good, so i took one The dough has too much flour on it and is not cooked well enough, same for the veggies. I had a vegetarian pizza, but there were only a few vegetables, cooked in the Taiwanese style. I didn’t really like it. If i have to go for a pizza in Taipei, i would still go to Maryjane.

NCCU – 蔥油餅 and other 餅

4 Jul

A new shop has opened near NCCU (again, yeah), and it sells one of my favorite Taiwanese snack: green onion pancakes, or 蔥油餅. Basicaly, it’s 50% 餅 (pancake), 40% 油 (oil) and 10% 蔥 (green onion). You can have the thin ones like omelettes (here you change the proportions: 50% oil and 40% pancake), or the huge ones, bigger than pizza and thicker too. These ones are a little like pizza dough/focaccia. The shop vendor will cut it in 8/6 and then when you buy it, he cuts it again in smaller pieces and gives it to you in a bag.

I went there several times to try some of their other 餅 since one is pretty huge. I tried the Coconut pancake and the Sesame pancake. Coconut one is dry and pretty empty so not that good, and the sesame one is not really what i execpt concerning the sesame. I like it traditional small buns where it’s still seeds, but here it’s just like a jam that has lost its flavor.

So for the 蔥油餅, you can go there, but for the other products….

I had to try in the end some of his products. As you know, i’m not fond of chocolate (i don’t say no to a piece or two of chocolate, but in desserts that’s not what i prefer), so i picked the milk chocolate with salted butter caramel and a hot chocolate powder.

The chocolate was really nice, not too sweet as it’s often is with caramel. Nothing to say except that’s really good.

However, concerning the chocolate powder, i’ve several things to say. I know that his shop was elected as the best hot chocolate in Paris. Actually i wanted to drink one but the room was already full, that’s why i ended up buying the powder.

But the powder comes without any information about how to make the hot chocolate. So i made one as i could, and i was really disappointed in terms of flavor, texture. I really prefered Angelina cocoa powder which at least gives you the recipe about how to make your hot chocolate. This one i think didn’t have enough chocolate but then it was too bitter for me who’s not fond of dark chocolate.

So far, my favorite ever hot chocolate was the rich one from Café Pouchkine. And just to let you know, prices are 1,5 time more expensive here than in France.
