Trying Taiwanese Beer at Maji Restaurant

My friend came back from Japan (she teaches English there) so we set a date to catch up. We were originally going to go to Hanok because I saw on Instagram that they have the sizzling hot plate with the egg, corn and cheese like Tabom but then I decided to try out Cocoru for fried chicken instead. When we got there, they didn’t have much of a line up waiting outside but the server told us that it would be a 1 hour wait so we left since there are so many other options on Alexandra Road.

We ended up heading over to Maji Restaurant down the street and since we were a table of 2, we got a table right away. Yay for no waiting! The restaurant is also a lot more spacious than Cocoru.

T&T-Taiwanese Sticky Rice Rolls

EDIT: I wrote this last month and the price has now gone up to $4.29.

Another EDIT: Apparently it’s $4.50 now… >.>

I’ve decided that it’s time to share my addiction to Taiwanese Sticky Rice Rolls with you all! I’ve had them for many years now since I discovered them in Osaka Supermarket. Now that T&T has opened at Marine Gateway, I have even more opportunities to get one! Priced at $3.99, this is a great snack.

T&T Taiwanese Sticky Rice Rolls

Unfortunately you cannot customize your sticky rice roll at this location. They are all pre-made and sitting in a warmer. Not a problem though because I’m not super picky about what’s in my rice roll. They all taste good to me! They do have a few varieties that include traditional, marinated pig ears, shredded chicken etc. General fillings include marinated egg, shredded egg, preserved vegetables, pork floss or Chinese donut. I was surprised that the Chinese donut was still crispy when I got mine.

If you wait till 8 or 9pm when they’re closing soon, I believe they go on sale for $3.49.

Pearl Castle

Pearl Castle is one of my favorite Taiwanese cafes and I used to come here a lot before some of the newer Taiwanese cafes popped up. Even my parents like it! I was invited to a menu tasting by ChineseBites with Sophia (Every Day Is a Food Day) so I was excited to try some new things and old favourites. We ordered 4 appies, 4 drinks and 4 entrees! It was enough to feed another three people…  Read more

Uncle Lu-Sister Restaurant of Corner 23

If you haven’t heard already, Corner 23 opened a new restaurant called Uncle Lu in Continental Square in Richmond. It’s right in the corner so it might be easy to miss. My parents took me here for lunch on the weekend and at the entrance, there is a list where you can put down your name. It was quite empty when we got there around 1pm so we didn’t need the list. The ceiling is decorated with a lot of Chinese lanterns.

That Time I Ate the Whole Food Court-Taste of Aberdeen

Disclaimer: All food was complimentary but opinions are my own

I was invited to another Chinese Bites event last month and this time it was at the Aberdeen food court with 60 other foodies. I’m quite familiar with the food court (or so I thought) and I’ve spent a lot of time here when I was younger. Now I had the chance to try EVERY food stall! It was a dream come true yet I feared for my growing waistline. #foodbloggerproblems

So without further ado… let the gluttony begin!
