Signature Bak Kuk Teh
In the area to meet friends and decided to check out the food options along this stretch of road (which has changed a fair bit due to the construction of Downtown Line, and sadly, our favourite Liu Sha Bao is GONE!!).
The bak kut teh signboard caught our attention and we decided to give it a go, despite the lack of crowd.
The interior was simple, and kind of reminded us of the Malaysian-styled kopi tiams which we saw in Malacca and Penang – simple in ambience but winning customers over through good food. Would this BKT shop give us the same experience?
Note: Shin Yeh Bistro has ceased operations at this location.
There was a Deal on sale where you pay S$30 for S$60 worth at Shin Yeh Bistro in Novena so we bought the Deal and here we are again!
Have been craving for Taiwan food ever since we came back so this “sort-of” satisfy our cravings before we go Taiwan again!
FInal day in Taipei!
Today is our final day in Taipei and our flight was 3:35pm. We planned to reach the airport 3 hours before departure, so we had plenty of time in the morning.
Morning was basically slept-in till 8am, enjoyed room facilities (Nespresso and the super nice tea bags provided) with cheesecake bought from 7-11 just behind the hotel the night before.
Note: The Junction 8 outlet has ceased operations.
Fish Belly Porridge
I was still craving for some comforting and delicious porridge before going back to office to work and we ended up at Crystal Jade at Bishan Junction 8. I was feeling abit apprehensive as our previous experience with this place wasn’t very good, and we were worried about the dinner crowd as we didn’t make any reservations…
Turned out that it was fairly easy to get a table for 2 if you weren’t going for the steamboat buffet… haha! We were brought to a table immediately and I happily ordered the Fish Belly Porridge and hubby decided to try Beehoon with Shredded Duck. And of course, something to share – Broccoli with Mushrooms.
