金峰魯肉飯 Jinfeng Braised Pork Rice @Taipei

2016-01-11 11.37.59-1We have been to Taipei many times but seemed to have missed this popular braised pork rice every time. So today we made it a point to die-die-also-must-go!

It was easy to find, and we located it quickly once we came out of station’s Exit 2. From afar we could already saw a queue forming. In out hearts we were thinking “Got so nice meh?” Haha…

As we approached, we realized the queue was for take-outs, because they are popular during lunchtime. But we were here to dine in, and got our seats quickly.

We ordered:

  • 魯肉飯 Braised Pork Rice (NT30) – The rice was the best we had in this trip, fluffy and 粒粒分明 not mushy. The gravy was very addictive, and the minced meat was a good mix of meat and fatty bits.
  • 焢肉 Pork Belly (NT35) – The meat had a slightly chewy texture, and could be easily torn off; yummlicious!
  • 人蔘雞湯 Ginseng Chicken (NT50) – This was very value-for-money, as the small bowl of soup was packed with chicken meat and ginseng.
  • 燙青菜 Green Vegetable (NT20)- We ordered this to feel less sinful, haha 😛

Overall, a very enjoyable lunch 🙂

Auntie Kim’s Korean Restaurant @Upper Thomson

Seafood pancake

Seafood pancake

I was craving for some Korean pancakes so it was a choice between Parker or Auntie Kim’s. Decided on Auntie because Parker is better for BBQ but Auntie is more well-rounded… Lol! Unfortunately, food standards seemed to have dropped as compared to our previous visit 😦

Auntie Kim’s is along the same stretch of shophouses with UOB, Kampung Chicken, Dino’s, a Japanese restaurant and Ritz Apple Strudel. The restaurant was brightly-lit and there are some al-fresco seats if you prefer to stay outdoors. Deco was quite pleasant and you feel welcomed when you step into the restaurant.

The seafood pancake came really fast after we ordered our dinner! It was quite yummy but we hardly saw any seafood… but there was only one type of pancakes available, so we were pretty sure it was supposed to be seafood pancake… haha! Continue reading
