Taiwan Trip - Day 4 part 2 and Day 5

We went to 东区 later that night because my brother in law want try this particular restaurant.
Plus I wanted to go to the different label stores to buy something for J.

I managed to see xiao gui in his shop! OMG
Super regret not asking him for a photo!!! And my brother in law said I'm really lucky! He went a couple of time and have never bumped into any artists but I DID!!! OMG hahaha!

But personally I think 1 of his staff is handsome than him. HAHAHA!!
I think my mum reaction was really funny. She keep asking me to take photo with him.
Maybe I should the next time I bumped into any artists. Do tell me how to approach them if you ever encounter! HAHAHA

Side track a little, I did purchased something from his shop AES for J because it was the most affordable label I can paid without using card. Haha. Actually I wanted to buy clots but it really way over my budget and I think my mum will scold me when she saw the bill. HAHA

Back to the food!

We went to this restaurant 度小月 (Tu Hsiao Yueh / du xiao yue) which I have no idea where it's exact location.
It was really crowded and to be frank, I don't think the portion was enough as a meal.
Even a toddler, Nicole was still hungry after this meal.

However, taste wise is really YUMMY! Service too! 一级棒的啦!

This is where they prepared and cooked the noodle!
I think it's so cool!!!

I ordered their 肉燥饭 (Braised pork rice) and it is super awesome~
I can't seem to find any 卤肉饭 on the street. So this is the closest I can get to try the authentic  肉燥饭 which I think is almost identical to 卤肉饭. I might be wrong~

卤豆腐 (Braised Tofu) 
Taste normal but the texture of the tofu was very smooth and silky!!

炸脆皮大肠 (deep fried intestine). DOPE! I love it whenever the 大肠 is handle by deep fry! 
Super crispy and it does not have any weird smell.

温泉丝瓜蛤蜊 (Steamed luffa with clams). Very refreshing and the clams were really fresh!
I think because Taiwanese like eating and have access to seafood easily, thus most of their ingredients are super fresh and nice!

We ordered this 龍蝦卵河粉卷 (Rice Vermicelli Roll with Lobster Roe). Taste wise was really nice. But this was serve cold? As in it wasn't hot or warm and the vermicelli was a little too "springy". Overall, still very refreshing!!!

My family ordered their noodle 擔仔麵 (Tan Tsi Noodles). I tried some and it was really nice!
The soup was really fragrance and sweet. The noodle wasn't overcooked too! 

No. 12號, Alley 8, Lane 216, Section 4, Zhōngxiào East Road, Daan District
Taipei City, Taiwan 106

Since we weren't really full, we headed to some bubble tea cafe along the street before heading back to the hotel. They have tons of bubble tea cafes around. I'm sure most of them taste similar or equally good!
I saw a Little Twin Stars cafe on the way too! But we didn't went in because the queue was quite long and was drizzling.

Super fattening but how to not drink bubble tea when you are in Taiwan!!!
This glass is their standard 500ml bubble tea.
I was super full just by drinking the whole glass.

We ordered some snacks too, but I only ended up having photo of this snack.
It's just fried tofu with rice cake. 

As for the next day which was our last day in Taiwan, we didn't take photos because we didn't go anywhere far. I went back to 西门町 with my mum because she didn't managed to went down the previous night.
Wrong timing because it was Saturday, SUPER CROWDED. Although part of me was hoping I will be able to bump into any artists fan meeting session since they usually held over there. Too bad, no luck. HAHA

The only photo we took that day. 
Some Thai restaurant at 新光三越. The hairstylist cut a bang for me. HAHAHA
She said suit me better than my side fringe.
Oh well~~ 

I guess I shall end my Taiwan trip post here.
It had been really a long time since we travel as a family.
Although there were many hiccups but at least we get relax and enjoyed ourselves.
Nicole finally get sit on a plane after sending us off so many times.

Till then,
