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.

MOS Burger – Rice Burger

22 Sep

I finally tried the rice burger, famous in Asia but that we don’t have in Europe unfortunately. So i went to the most famous fast-food around here (Mc Do excluded), MOS Burger, the Japanese chain to have this burger.

Just for my personal data, i looked at the kcal before on the website to compare with a big mac for example. The one i chose was the less fat one (excepting the vegetarian one, but only mushrooms…not my piece of cake) which is only 305kcal, so if you compare with a 500kcal Big Mac, that’s quite low. The other rice burgers are around 500kcal too, so i guess that rice instead of bun doesn’t change anything.

My chose a japanese burger, with beef meat like in Sukiyaki (which i loooove~). And the meat was delicious! I really liked it, and with the lettuce and the salad it was quite good and you feel full, not like after a Mc Do meal. So yeah, i prefer MOS Burger so far, rice hamburgers rock! I want one in France!

Again, the service is in 2 parts here: you first pay, get a number, go to your seat, and a waiter bring the burgers. Quite cool, you only have to wait for the -long- queue when it’s lunch time.
