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.

Hielo

2 Dec

Yogourt ice-cream is pretty popular in Taiwan. Here is another brand, Hielo, which proposes 0% fat yogourt ice-creams. What is great is that you have the choice between a waffle ice-cream and a cupcake one. I chose the cupcake one, which a lot of fruits (called Kate). You can also make your own ice-cream if you prefer. I prefer this one to Yogourt, the ice-cream taste less like yogourt.

Count around 150 TWD for one cupcake hielo.

Taiwanese Almond yoghurt jelly

1 Oct

I tried this desert because i had already tasted a sample of almond milk and it was pretty good. So i wanted to see if this yogurt (which is actually between a jelly and a yoghurt) would be the same.

How was it? You know the lotions you use for your skin with almond flavor? Well, try to think eating the same taste. I really like it. but again the flavor wasn’t strong enough. I suppose that comes with the country, since even chocolate is often tasteless here. They gave me some mango purée to put on it, but almond milk and mango…i don’t know, i prefer almonds alone.

The texture of the yogurt is really jelly like and pretty hard to eat (like every jelly i’d say). Maybe i’ll eat some again.
