T2014 Food Court

In Taipei, the place we stayed in, is very near to the Far Eastern Department Store in Ximending so whenever we have no idea on what to eat for lunch or dinner, we would go to the food court located at the basement of this Department Store to have a simple meal, nothing fancy. There is even McD in this food court.

White bittergourd soup, Tauchu (豆醬, fermented soya bean paste) noodles (dry), water spinach (Ipomoea aquatica) and a bowl of peanut tofufa aiyu jelly (愛玉) shaved ice dessert bought from two different stalls in the food court.

A bowl of noodle (mee suah) with water spinach, pork and winter melon bought from another stall.

My quarter bowl of taufufa and aiyu jelly (because we shared one bowl of dessert) and a small plate of dry mee suah mixed with vinegar.

A closer look at the mee suah - so very fine.

  1. Would love to try the different varieties of mee sua there. Had mee sua in ginseng chicken soup in Seoul with lots of their traditional wine, very nice.

  6. I want to say I like that mee suah, but... winter melon... hmm... okay lah, can eat, but if I got choice won't pick it. If I eat there I be like oyster mee suah everyday. That would be bad. :/

    1. Oh so you like oyster mee suah. Won't be that bad because they serve very small portions per bowl unless you eat many bowls at one go.
