Mouth-watering Taiwanese cuisine in Brother Hotel Orchid Room!
There are a lot of places for Taiwanese cuisine in Taipei. Celebrated our friends came back Taiwan for vacation, we dinned in Brother Hotel Orchid Room for traditional Taiwanese cuisine. You know that, he always has burger, steak, American style food. Let’s have some Taiwanese feeling.
How to get here. Take MRT Wenhu Line or Songshan-Xindian Line and alight at Nanjing Fuxing Station. Just right behind you. Well, the hardest pari was coming, what we should order? Pan-fried, stir-fried, steamed, deep-fried, braised and broiled? Oh, let staff recommend if you have no idea lol.
[地瓜稀飯 congee with sweet potato]
For some elders, they always have congee with sweet potato for breakfast. However, my foodie friend told me that the classical way to have Taiwanese cuisine is congee, haha. I believe this congee would make Taiwanese remind their childhood memories. :p Our common memory for breakfast!
Stir-fried oyster with fermented bean. Salty, super appetizing. Fresh oyster, very sweet.
Boiled amaranth with fish, not as greasy as we had in night market or some stir-fires shop.
Pan-fried loin. Oh damn good. Nicely tender, also juicy. I am dying to know the recipe! Why Brother Hotel’s chefs could make loin so tender and soft. Why!!!!
Celery and dried squid. One of my favoriate home cooking. It would be better with more spicy.
Fish fingers, I guess. Not that good. The coating was too thick that I could not feel the fish! Sadness.
Water melon, pineapple, guava, all of them were sweet, pretty good.
Mung bean soup, always for dessert. I always cooked mung bean soup at home, tried to release summer heat!
In general, kind and gentle staff, I love these cuisine without greasy style as what I had in other restaurant. Recommend people who would love to try a well-known, old style Taiwanese cuisine restaurant. : D
