LOVE cooking class!!! It’s a fabulous way of spending 3 hours cooking / stuffing face. Who’s excited about MSG-free dim sum?
Gourmet Chinese food enjoyed within the Summer Palace itself. This ass-kicking hotel restaurant had it all going – the traditional deco, the service, the ambience and the location. Different from most Chinese restaurants that I’ve been, this one was quiet and the waitron knew what service was. Honestly, after 8 years of bad service in China, this place was a paradise found.
Prepare to queue up at this legendary restaurant – Din Tai Fung 鼎泰豐 , Xinyi store. Warm Taiwanese hospitality and DELICIOUS xiaolongbao :9 No need to break the piggy bank for this place. They are tasty and super reasonable with their prices (NT$200 for 10 xiaolong bao!!!). There are multiple branches even in Taipei, make sure you’re going to the right one. It is Xinyi that you need to get to.
I am a big HK food fan! Curry fish ball, waffle, shui mai, grilled squid, stir fry noodle with sweet sauce, wonton noodle, beef noodle, almond tea… my list rages on :9 yum yum yum. This is a total food porn show down post.
