Restoran Kah Kah Loke 佳佳乐苦瓜汤 @Johor Bahru, Malaysia

Ms K brought us to a place where she used to frequent, and we were glad that she did 🙂 Here was what we tried.

  • Bitter Gourd Soup: A simple bowl of goodness with a generous amount of bitter gourd and liver. The bitter gourd were just mildly bitter, and the liver was fresh and not over-cooked. The soup was also sweetened to balance out the bitterness.
  • Deep Fried Pork: Crispy on the outside and tender on the inside, we enjoyed this very much!
  • Big Intestines: The intestines were cleaned properly, and there was a nice bite to it. We kept trying to encourage Ms. K to try, haha!
  • Sambal Sweet Potato Leaves (RM5.80): Something to balance out the meal, this was not bad too.

Restaurant Ah Koong 亚坤纯正西刀鱼丸 @Johor Bahru, Malaysia

It was quite late when we finally cleared the customs, so we went to the nearby Restaurant Ah Koong 亚坤纯正西刀鱼丸 to get a quick fix for breakfast. We shared a Handmade Big Fishball with Soup 手打大粒鱼丸 (RM9 for 6 pieces), Mixed Yong Tau Fu 酿什锦 (RM10.20), Crispy Fish 香脆鱼饼 (RM5.30 per piece), and Crispy Mixed Plate 炸三宝 (RM7) to share.

The fish balls were quite bouncy and the rest of the food were pretty decent. Not bad for a quick breakfast 🙂

Taiwan 2017 Itinerary

IMG_4638Taiwan remains as our favourite short-trip destination!

Despite the slightly more expensive and longer flight as compared to Hong Kong, food and entertainment are definitely much more affordable in Taiwan, and I supposed it helps that we know the language.

We tried to do some different thing every trip, but we also love to revisit old places that brings fond memories to us as a couple… 🙂

Like the picture of 九份 Jiufen on the top banner, a place we love going back to, especially to sip tea on the balcony! Haha…

Here’s what we did in the short 4 days.

IMG20171101162855IMG_4773We had a bit of time left before we had to depart to catch our flight, and so we decided to check out a cafe. There were quite a few options in this area, but this one looked more inviting 🙂

With a 拿鐡 Latte (NT140), and 凍頂烏龍 Oolong (NT120), we had a great time just chilling out here.

三多屋爸爸嘴 Sando House @Taipei

IMG20171101125503Our hotel staff recommended going to 華陰街 Huaying Street area for lunch, and we must say, it was a great recommendation!

We had been here during our previous trip, and unfortunately, the 麻醬涼麵 Sesame Cold Noodle stall had already closed down. So we kept walking, till we saw 2 long queues side-by-side, one for 脆皮鮮奶甜甜圈 Crispy Fresh Donuts (Taiwanese donuts that was apparently even better than the big brands), and the other for 三多屋爸爸嘴 Sando House, a place selling value-for-money sashimi.

早餐坊 Breakfast Bistro @Taipei

IMG_4756IMG_4752We were taking a stroll after breakfast, when we were attracted by this 早餐坊 Breakfast Bistro… and had our second (and third :P) 蛋餠 Crepe of the day!

Both the Cheese Bacon 培根起司燒餅 (NT45) and Smoked Chicken 燻雞蛋餅 (NT40) versions were quite good!

Now we really need a good long stroll to walk off everything…

四海豆浆大王 Four Seas Soy Milk King @Taipei

IMG_4749Our first breakfast on the final day was at 四海豆浆大王 Four Seas Soy Milk King along 長安西路 Chang’an West Road which is very near to our hotel.

For NT90, we got ourselves a 豆浆 Soy Milk, 燒餠夹葱蛋夹肉排 Chinese Pancake with Spring Onion Egg and Meat Patty, and 肉鬆蛋餠 Crepe with Meat Floss.

It was always quite satisfying whenever we have this simple local breakfast amidst the bustling busy morning traffic  🙂

And off we go to explore other parts of the city before our flight in the afternoon!

亓家蒸餃專賣店 Qi’s Steamed Dumplings @Taipei

We were chatting with the staff at PK Caffe that we were on our way to check out 陳家涼麵 Chen’s Cold Noodles, and she recommended that we should try out 亓家蒸餃專賣店 Qi’s Steamed Dumplings nearby since we were in this area. We were glad that we took up her recommendations!

We tried the 蝦仁絲瓜蒸餃 Prawn and Luffa Dumplings (NT120 for 8 pieces), and we were wow-ed! Each dumpling was juicy and filled with a generous amount of fresh fillings covered by thin layer of dumpling skin. The luffa complemented the meat well.

We felt so lucky to be able to eat really good dumplings for 2 consecutive days 🙂
