Taiwanese Breakfast: the cheating crêpe

31 Oct

I was cheated!!!!!! It hurts. Really.

I thought it was a crepe filled with salad, corns and tomatoes, (i asked if it was like the salad that was just next to it and the woman said it was pretty much the same).

I started to eat, and then…WTF?!

It was a crêpes filled with soy, SUGAR, PEANUTS and CROUTONS.

Where did they see that you put sugar with salad?! And with Peanuts? And eat croutons with sugar and crêpes?! It’s driving me crazy to see sugar everywhere…

Taiwanese dessert: Douhua 豆花

25 Sep

Some Taiwanese friends shew us the way to try a typical dessert. I was quite scared actually with my past experiences with Taiwanese desserts, but this one was ok. This is called Douhua, it’s a soup with some kind of paste which is actually the same thing as tofu but less solid (that’s what i understood). The flavors are mainly with beans (red beans, green beans, tapioca, peanuts…). You can ask for/without ice.

It’s jelly-like and it’s a soup again, but the flavors were a little better, and even if it’s still quite sweet, it’s better than the desserts i’ve tried so far. I might eat it again once or twice in the year.
