Korean Restaurant – NCCU

8 Dec

My favorite restaurant near NCCU. Well, i don’t know anybody around here who doesn’t like this restaurant. It’s always crowded. I haven’t reviewed it yet because i forgot to bring my camera the last 2 times. I love it, but the 3 times i went there i ended up sick because i always eat too much…Because yeah, you have free refill in rice, tea, soup, and they give you also one pickle per person. With that i always take some kimchi -cabbage marinated with red hot chili pepper- (of course!). Then i took some bibimpab (rice with egg, meat and veggies) to compare with the one i had in France, and 2 times i took Jjajangmuyn (noodles with black sauce), my favorite Korean dish. I’m a Jjajangmyun lover, which make laugh the owner (a Korean guy). I always ask the name of the dish in Korean because i can’t recognize it in Chinese. The first time i went there, he gave me a yogourt and Coca Cola for free, and 2 pickles. The second time, he explained me how i should put the spicy sauce in the bibimpab and not eat it plainly. He also taught me a few words in Korean (like it’s good/or not) since he saw that i liked Korea. Then today, when i took Jjajangmyun again, as he saw last time that i had troubles to mix the noodles, he did it for me. He’s really nice and i love the place, but as i say, i’m always sick after (coz 3 bowls of rice, one big bowl of Jjajangmyun, pickles, soup and kimchi, that’s a lot…). Count 100TWD for Jjajangmyun and kimchi, or 120TWD for bibimpab.

Wendel’s bakery

20 Nov

Oh oh oh, Christmas spirit is not dead! In some shop, you can feel it! And particularly in this German bakery called Wendel that i spotted on a hungry girl’s website and that i wanted to try. We went there to eat some cakes: delicious. It’s more the ” homemade” type, so don’t expect refined pastries, but you have delicious good cakes including rhubard pie, apple pie, marbré, chocolate cake, rasperry chocolate crumble, vanilla crumble, opera, ginger bread, Stollen, banana cake… You also have a wide range of real bread and bretzels.

  Their marbré is really good, tender (happy butter!), and their chocolate cake not heavy at all despite its look. Actually i don’t know which one i prefer between Lalos and Wendel. Maybe Lalos is more refined and with a little stronger chocolate taste and a little bit drier, and this one is softer. So it’s not really the same. I love them both. Rhubard pie is not strong enough in rhubard for me, i usually like the bitterness in it, but here the pastry was to thick for it and with nuts so the rhubarb wasn’t that strong.

I couldn’t resist to buy a ginger bread (but look at it, it’s so cute, how can you possibly resist to that!). That’s my first time eating ginger bread like this (but i wanted something to remind me Christmas!) and it’s nice. The cinammon taste isn’t that strong, the biscuit isn’t too hard neither and not chewy as i was scared it would be. Nice one, but not my favorite cake ever.

The bakery can become a restaurant, so if you want to eat German that’s also a possibility.
You can count around 80 TWD for a piece of cake.

Rice and Noodles take-away – NCCU

7 Oct

I found my new take-away place. The cook is just amazing. Just  looking at him is already a show. He uses a wok and never stops, even when he put fire so high that the flame is taller than him. His dexterity is really impressive. I must take a video next time.I stand in front of him for more than 15mn waiting for my food, but i didn’t get bored at all watching him.

This place is in the small street near NCCU, so foreign students don’t seem to go there often. However it’s really cheap (i had this for 50 TWD) and that’s delicious.
