Taipei Visit 2010

Posted on February 5, 2010  in Travel

I was of official business in Taipei this week so there was not much posts in Menardconnect.com. Time to catch up so in the tradition of my six cafe world cheats, my six petville cheats, my six fishville cheats, my six mafia wars Bangkok tips, and my free six video post, here are six photos of my favorite foodstuffs in Taipei for this trip

1. Fried Chicken Curry Rice

On one of my solo adventures, I have feasted on this Fried Chicken Curry Rice from one of the food court at a nearby mall in Dun Hua. It’s an adventure since I do not usually like curry and spicy food but this one turns out fine.

2. Beef Noodles Wins

My JM (Project Manager) brought me to this nice noodle house and he let me try this delicious beef noodles. What so special about this beef noodles? He says that Taipei City have an annual contest for the best noodles in town and this beef noodle is the winner of the 2007 contest. For me this one deserves its win!

3. Lifesaver: Mos Burger

As per my previous Taipei visit, Mos Burger saved my day again. On the first day, I was not on the adventurous mood so I decided to have a quick bite at Mo’s Burger. While waiting for the Teriyaki chicken burger, I grabbed my phone camera and took a picture of my hot and tasty mushroom soup and drink.

4. Another Curry: Beef this time

One of my colleagues treated me to nearby restaurant. Since I just had noodles last time, I tried another rice curry dish. This time its beef and again I requested that it should not be spicy. We had some great talk about life and politics in Taiwan and Philippines

5. Guava Juice


One of my favorite fruit juices here in Taipei and I buy one or two tetra pack to bring back to Manila. I’m posting the photo here so that if some teammate will be kind enough to buy me one as pasalubong, I will redirect him/her to this post 🙂

6. Raven’s Favorite: White Grape Juice

This one is a real winner! This is Raven’s favorite and we love the unique taste of this white grape juice and its grape pulp. This is best served chilled. Recently this brand was made available in plastic bottle so I brought some in tetra and in the bottle. Again, I’m posting the photo here so that if some good soul will buy me one as pasalubong but he/she does not know how the product look like, I will redirect him/her here 🙂

Sorry no Din Tai Fung and Xiaolongbao this time, but this visit is still a good experience for me. Til next time again Taipei! Hopefully with Raven na!
