Taipei Food Trip – Day 1

Taipei is a place that i will never get tired of visiting.  My recent trip 6-day trip was one filled with food and shopping.   For this trip, i will do a food feature cos having close native friends definitely made a difference.  They will always make an effort to bring me to different eating places for every trip that I visit.  Their hospitality never fails to amaze me.

I would like to share with all the foodies, what my taiwanese friends deemed as good and popular.  Gosh… think i am starting to camwhore.   I cannot believe I have taken so many pictures for this trip, so will have to break the post from day 1 – day 6.

My flight to Taipei TaoYuan only landed at about 6pm.  On my day of arrival,  I only managed to have time for dinner with my group of friends.  This is my dinner for Day 1 – mala steamboat buffet.

name of restaurant rhymes with the mala steamboat we were having


outside the Restaurant waiting for our seats


This restaurant has won many awards for the year 2009 & 2010 for their spread of high quality food.  A lot of customers come here for their top quality U.S. angus beef.


look at the menu for the meat being offered, they also offer taiwan black pork


dun be jealous k? we only paid about $25 per head for the spread. haha


look at the angus beef.... ***salivating***


taiwanese black pork. the meat is so marbled...


the mushroom spread... looks nice right?


the assorted "bola" and yam tasted really good


other goodies


other than beef and pork, they serve chicken too


you can concoct your own sauce.... friends say the pots of ingredients look like paint in this pic! what do you think?


a glimpse of the food spread... self-help counter


bottles of cola.... drink to your hearts content. drinks is included.


not keen on fizzy drink? they have other choices


so what's next ? look at the dessert spread!


jello ? anyone?


is that all? no..... haagen dazs and movenpick ice cream, FREE flow! Shiok right?


apparently the restaurant is packed everyday. with their food spread and price, am sure that is expected


picture with my dearest... patty


our group picture for remembrance...


Verdict:  This is a place i hope to go back when i visit again.  The restaurant is located very near to Ximenting.   Make us wonder why our buffet spread here not as fantastic with such an affordable price.  I guess the only down side about this restaurant is that you are only given 2hours to eat.  Think the owners will go bankrupt otherwise…LOL

More interesting food coming up….. please come back ya?
