Apparently, this was the result of a misunderstanding. We arrived at the place, and when my friend who picked the place arrived, he told us that he had wanted us to meet at the place next door. However, since we arrived early, I observed that these two shops seemed to be the same place after all. Plates were coming to and fro each place. Since we had not been here before, I didn't know the difference. I thought it didn't make any difference.
This plate of leek sprout was a bit horrifying for me, as I did not really like leek... But it was the first time for me to see it prepared like this.
As for poultry cold plate, we originally wanted to order something different, but they were all out... So we settled for drunken chicken. It was not bad, but not that good either. No surprise!
I really enjoyed this place of bitter gourd salad. It was only a bit bitter. When you have it with the thousand island sauce, the taste swings back and forth between bitter and sweet. Quite an interesting experience.
Fried green beens - an other veggie plate for the meal.
Fried rice to fill up the boys (there were three of them among us)
The fish was the best, methinks. After all, I love the taste of lemon with seafood. The fish tasted great with sprinkles of lemon juice on it.
Shrimp and pineapple were both things that should be watched out during pregnancy. So I only had a bite each.
"Three cups chicken" was pretty good. But seeing my appetite was still not at its best, I didn't have very much either (as much as I wished I could have more...)
The sausage was also recommended. However, my other half had so much of this (with garlic) I could not bear his breath after!!
Girlled pork neck was yet another of our favourites. The sauce was a bit sweet and salty. The meat was cooked just right. Perfect.
This was another dish of pork (I forget exactly what). At this point, I was almost done with the meal. I was not yet at the point where I had an appetite for two!
But then, my friends took out these wonderful cupcakes. Apparently, they are the best in Taiwan. I was so stuffed at this point, that I could not eat any more! So I had to keep it for later, when the food's been digested.
And later on, another friend suggested, that we could not leave until we've tried their noodles. So we paid the bill, and moved next, next door, to a place that looked like a simple noodle stall (but basically same owner as the restaurant). We all ordered a bowl of noodles each.
It was not bad at all! But my tummy was about to burst!
So I had a few bites, and gave the rest to my lovely other half.
Now that I've regained my appetite, it'll be difficult for him to expect me to have left overs! (Sometimes I take food from his plate now!)
