The Diner

10 Jul

I wanted to try this restaurant for ages, and since this morning I went hiking and it was still 9am when i came back to Xinyi, i decided to have my breakfast there. I picked pancakes, because the hot weather reminded Thailand, and for me, Thailand+ breakfast means pancakes (maybe weird, this that’s like this). So i chose the season fruit pancakes and a banana yogourt drink (Thailand all the way).

I didn’t expect it, but it was huge! 3 pancakes, the size on an omelette, some whipped butter, a lot of fruits (that i loved it) and some syrup. The syrup cup was pretty small, and i only found out in the end that you could refill it, but anyway, it was nice. The only thing is that pancakes are heavy so maybe it would be better to choose fruits that make juice to make it easier to eat. I had to force myself to finish it and actually this made my br-un-er. So maybe reduce the size to 2 pancakes would also be cool for a breakfast.It’s not that cheap, it cost me 440NTD for the drink and the pancakes, but it’s like the average price in the area.

Anyway, a nice adress for breakfast, in a nice environment, with music. I realy liked it. They also serve French toast, omelette, hamburgers, brownies, apple pies, smoothies, juices, coffee and tea, cocktails, american breakfast, potatoes….so you can nearly have whatever you want, except waffles.

Tarte aux fruits

15 Mar

I tried a fruit tart. It looked like my grand-mother’s apple cake but with pears, so i wanted to try it, but i was quite disappointed with the taste. We can barely taste the pears because the almond powder is too strong. So it’s more like an almond powder tart. The dough with the almond is quite heavy too and there’s too much syrup for me on the tart. Bad choice at Lalos this time.

I thought it would be like an apple, but it’s a mix between a goyava and an apple. Its name: Jujube in French. Well, you can’t have everything: being quite good, healthy, AND having a nice name. Not possible unfortunately.

Bon alors, j’avais gouté des fruits sans en  connaitre leur nom, maintenant, terminé, j’ai trouvé un site très pratique où je peux tout avoir.
Donc voici les noms en français des fruits:

Les cheveux de Bouddha: pomme cannelle/atte
Le petit cannelé rouge: pomme d’eau
Noix de coco d’Alan: noix de coco du Chili/coquito
La verte: chinotto (orange amère à feuilles de myrte)
Les goyaves sont en fait des Feijoas.
Les mandarines vertes orangées sont des mandarines de Satsuma

J’ai aussi pu voir dans l’île et les marchés des cédrats main de bouddha, des ramboutans et des Marangs.

Kiwi Jam

22 May

A new recipe that i tried from nademic.fr.
I had a few old kiwis left and since I didn’t want to throw them, I decided to make jam! So let’s go!

700g of peeled kiwis
460g of sugar (I think 450 is fairly enough if you don’t like sweet things)
1/2 apple
A quarter of a lemon (I used a Ginger, lemon jam since I didn’t have lemon)
1 cap of rum
1 knob of butter

 Cut your kiwis in small pieces and add the sugar with the apple cut in really thin slides. Then put it in the fridge for 3 hours. 

Afterward, make your fruits boiled (small bubbles) during an hour. Add at the same time the knob of butter so that you’ll not have scum. You have to mix often because of the sugar. Near the end, add your rum and the juice of the lemon/ the lemon jam. But you have to put it into jar or it will not last long.

Bon Appétit bien sûr ! 😉

Une nouvelle recette que j’ai essayé comme il me restait des vieux kiwis que je ne voulais pas jeter. Elle vient du site nademic.fr

Ingrédients :
700g de kiwis pelés
450g de sucre
1/2 pomme
¼ de citron (j’ai utilisé de la confiture au citron gingembre comme j’avais plus de citron)
1 bouchon de rhum
1 noix de beurre

Couper vos kiwis en petits morceaux et y ajouter le sucre et la pomme coupée en très fines lamelles. Mettre au frigo 3 heures. Ensuite, faire bouillir (petites bulles) pendant une heure. Ajouter assez rapidement le beurre pour éviter l’écume. Remuer souvent à cause du sucre. Vers la fin de la cuisson, ajouter le rhum et le citron. Mettre en bocal directement.
