A mixture of food






During the past week,I had a couple of dates with my hight school besties.I love this christmas season based on two reasons.One is the merry atmosphere and the other is that my friends who study abroad are coming back!

We had a lunch date at Mia Café,which was just ok.The food and dessert were like average,not particularly good.Besides,I couldn't figure it out why it always took so long to get what I ordered.The interesting thing was,after waiting for quite a while,I asked the server how long I had to wait,he was like "Oh,ok,I'll check it,"and then he came back right away with my food.The point is,it happened like two or three times!Don't know if I have to push them or what.

Then,I went to a restaurant called Goobur the other day.That was completely a disaster.We waited for more than half hour even we had a reservation,and then both of the risotto and the dessert were plain.Especially the risotto,it was like gruel!The server noticed I left like half of the portion and asked if I didn't like it.I told her that there was too much water in the risotto and it didn't have much taste.Luckily,they told me no need to pay for the risotto.

On the same day,we went to my favorite café in Taipei for dinner.I already knew that their desserts are amazing but this time I was much more surprised!The tiramisu flavor of baked meringue was like "OMG."It tasted like a traditional tiramisu but also in a very creative way.It was full of different textures,there were something crispy and something creamy.The aroma had so many layers as well,like the cream,the espresso,and the liqueur.

Even though I had a few unpleasant experiences at some restaurants,it didn't change the fact that I still had a super great time with my friends.I'm a foodie but I feel like sometimes it's about whom you are with,rather than what you have.

Still,happy holiday guys!

Milo Milo





It has been so long since my last lame post.Finally,I've got something to share!Today,I just finished an important French exam which had been torturing me during the past two months.I'm so glad that it has come to a pause now;hopefully,I can get a good result!

My stomach needed something good to comfort after the test,so me and my friend went to "Milo Milo" for lunch (If you constantly come over my blog,you'd know that I've been there so many times!).Actually,we were about to go to a newly-opened café/restaurant by L'OCCITANE,but surprisingly there were super crowded.Rain check for sure!

According to previous experiences at Milo Milo are all really good and that's why I'm kind of a regular customer.Yet, this time,I started to have a doubtful point of view.The soup was great,since it was rich and full of chopped mushrooms.You could tell that they didn't try to cut corners.The salad was pretty posh,in a bad way,though.I felt like my homemade salad is way better than theirs,but since we had a combo,I didn't have much to complain.Then,for the main dish,my ham was incredibly salty that I couldn't finish it.At least,the mashed potato was pretty silky and creamy.For the dessert,I got a crème brûlée,it was my first time trying other thing than brownie (What can I say?Their brownie is exceptional!I'd go their just for having a brownie!).Unexpectedly,the crème brûlée was amaaaaazing!I like that they put some blueberries on the top.I'd say it was as good as Papa Jo's (The best one in Taipei!).

Even though I was not that satisfied with the food,but what really annoyed me was the server!She was not so nice and she was in such a hurry!She got a talent that the very moment we put down the forks and knives,she would show up right away.It made me feel like she couldn't wait to see us finish our food and leave.The most evident example was,there was some bread serving with the soup,but when we ate up the soup,she asked if we had already done with the bread so she could take it away.Were you kidding me?I didn't feel like having the bread any more,but usually the bread will stay on the table till all the food is finished!Given the fact that I'm still quite into Milo Milo (Their desserts are irresistible!),I'd find her an excuse that maybe she was just suffering from PMS or something.
