REVIEW OF THE WEEK

Fujin Tree Taiwanese Cuisine & Champagne

2018-07-09 13:58

This is one of our favorite Taiwanese restaurants. It is close to our Taipei abode, and it serves more Fusion like Taiwanese dishes. The dishes use a lot of local and fresh ingredients and is prepared in a simple but delicious manner (very much like Guangdong style from my point of view). This time we ordered 3 dishes : Their ‘cordia & white water’ vegetable dish (NT380) – this is a very local vegetable but the ‘seeds’ in the dish produces the saltiness around it (love it). Rice Noodle Soup with Seafood & Taro (NT620) – a nice soup stew with a mixture of octopus balls (yummy), yam, prawns, fish cakes, big fat white noodles as base, etc. Very tasty and enjoyable – slurp the soup down with the noodles!. And finally we had their Stir Fried Chicken with Chestnuts and mushrooms (NT480) – not bad, but not one of their highlights. Previously we also had their Formosa Fried Rice Vermicelli (NT400) – this I would also highly recommend.

Red.

For those who miss the taste of Singapore, this is a great place to get their fix. The owner and chef is from Singapore (good sign) and that helps to ensure the authentic taste. I was with a group of Singaporeans and they really vouched for the following: Hainanese Chicken Rice (with the accompanying sweet sauce, garlic and chicken rice chili sauce!) – And of course the rice is well cooked with chicken stock broth. Singapore Laksa (not bad at all – but would have loved for the spices to be stronger – but the taste is spot on – came with 3 pieces of large prawns to boot), side dish – Har Cheong Gai (fried prawn paste chicken wings) – yummy – I ate like 3 whole pieces of this on top of my main course, and their Prawn Noodles (again most important here is the soup – and this was also right on the money – just a bit more peppery would be great!). I had their Nasi Lemak (coconut rice) with beef rendang (dry version) – this was also above average and the beef was tender with good sides of crunchy anchovies and nuts; but the rendang spices could have been stronger) – but the portions were large. The only below average dish would probably be their Blanched vegetables – a bit more oyster sauce and fried shallots would make this dish better. For drinks I had their iced Teh Tarik (literally meaning iced ‘pulled’ tea) – good. Overall – definitely visit for a taste of Singapore, they have other dishes that I would like to try next time – i.e. Bak Kut Teh (pork bone soup), Nasi Lemak with Fried Chicken and their Singapore Chili Crab!. The cost is definitely on the high side compared to what you would pay back in Singapore for those dishes though - the joys/pain of finding your home dish in a foreign country

Yong Kang Sliced Noodles

I love noodles. The only thing I love more than noodles are knife cut noodles. I love biting into a thick strand of noodle and the excitement of nonuniform sized noodles. I was eating my way around YongKang Lu and I saw the listing so I decided to pop in for lunch #4. It ordered a dry noodle, 炸酱面. The sauce was thick and chunky - very generous bits of minced tofu and ground pork. There were lots of shredded cucumbers that helped cut through the thickness of the sauce and gave the noodles a light refreshing crunch. The noodles texture is fantastic. It’s a bit thicker in the middle so a bit al dente and thinner on the sides for a softer bit. I really like the nonstandard size and texture of the thick noodle strands. All their noodles look and smell promising. Definitely adding this place to one of my favorite noodles joints in Taipei.
