Salted toast & Slice of Bun at the 2nd bakery – NCCU

25 Sep

Since nearly all the restaurants are closed after 2:30, i tried to find something salty at the bakery, and chose a toast. This one has green onion, bechamel, bacon, and parsley. Actually i was really surprised by it. It was really good, with a little of pepper, the bread was crispy and soft in the middle. I think that’s because of the flour that they use and that’s differnet from Europe. Anyway, i really loved it and it was perfect for dinner. I think i will try again somehting there.

Then i tried a slice of their bun. My god, it was soooo soft! It melted in the mouth. And there was this flavor that i also tasted in some Japanese breads, but that i never found in France and that i loved. It’s really addictive. They don’t have really good dessert, but when it comes to buns (what they call bread but that look like buns), they’re really good. I prefered this one to Eric Kayser’s one, even if they’re totally different, this one is more what i expect of a bun.

This is the second bakery on the left starting from NCCU main gate.

Danshui Iron Eggs 鐵蛋

25 Sep

Another thing i tried there was Iron eggs. That’s really small black eggs. In fact, that’s white eggs that were stewed and left some days in a pot. As for the color i don’t really know. It tastes like a stewed egg, however it’s a little more soggy and salty.

I tried the Brioche and a “sablé”, a simple one with butter (again in the description in the shop, i recognized “milk”, as if it was something healthy…).

The sablé was nice, but i would have baked it a little longer i guess. Otherwise the taste is great, you can smell the butter but not too much, and the sugar too on the border of the biscuit. Nice but not unforgettable.

The Brioche was with chocolate and orange peels. I didn’t expect the orange peels, but it was really nice. The flavor is here again, but it was starting to dry a little at each end of the brioche, so maybe add a little butter and also make it softer.

In the end, the shop is quite like in Paris (good but not awesome), except that the bread is twice as expensive as in France (100TWD) and that the “baguette” is more expensive than unconventional breads like the curcuma or olive ones (that’s quite strange…). You also can find some Taiwanese bakeries i guess because they sell strange flavors that you can’t find in France shops.
However, their almond croissants look awful. I even wonder how they can present it to customers. It doesn’t look like croissant at all, just likea cake that was too cooked and you can’t even find the croissant shape.

Of another funny thing! They sell brioche that looks exactly like “biscotte” (continental toast)! We were looking at them and my friend was saying that she needed some for her breakfast, so she took it, and was surprised to find it was a brioche!

It’s quite expensive for here, so once it’s a while it’s ok. It cost me 210 TWD for one little bread, 1 brioche and one biscuit.

Brochette Sausage

18 Sep

 

I tried this sausage, but i wasn’t really sure it was a sausage at first. Well, what i liked about this it’s that the dough around the sausage isn’t too oily, but dried. I don’t know the real name, but that’s good. Their sausage is sweet again. Maybe i’ll try to find how to make it at home because it looks quite simple.
