Kashoku-Best cocktails in Taiwan hands down, on my top 5 cocktail bar in the world list: rye old fashioned and sour mash Manhattan.
Hight grade Australian wagyu varieties over charcoals at 一頭也炭火燒肉, lets keep this meat train coming….plus one very lucky 5 year old.
Top of the Taipei W Hotel, 紫艷 takes the modern Chinese cuisine up another level: octopus amuse bouche, ”The Pearl” Pumpkin bisque with black truffle, Pan-fried cod fillet with pomelo honey sauce, ”Zen” Stuffed beefsteak tomato and claypot stewed chicken.
Don’t underestimate the power of a bowl of simple noodle soup… The rice noodle soup that cooked with all the butcher cuts’ essence at 大稲埕米粉湯 took me to tasty warm & fuzzy place. Heavenly cuts like pork blade meat, spine, heart and eye nerve. Did I mentioned all were cooked with charcoal instead of gas? This spot is a national treasure!
If pork innards’ your thing, 施家麻油腰花 is the place to go! Nothing better on a cold day with pork liver soup, minced pork rice and the best kidney dish I had so far in Taiwan–in sesame & rice wine infused broth.
Cuteness overload at the Sanrio sanctioned Kiko’s Cafe, surprisingly tasty smoke salmon Eggs Benedict and curry loco moco.
