MAJI TAIWANESE STIR FRY RICHMOND

MAJI TAIWANESE STIR FRY RICHMOND

 

Richmond has not seen quality Taiwanese cuisine in a long time. Recently, a few has popped up here and there. First there was Uncle Lu 安可盧萬巒豬腳 and now Maji Taiwanese Stir Fry 麻吉台式熱炒 opened beside Nan Chuu G Men. Maji Taiwanese Restaurant is a casual fare with small dish tapas, drinks and late night. The decor at Maji reminds me of  Lu Sang Taiwan 呂桑食堂 in Taipei. But of course, don’t expect Yi-Lan 依蘭 cuisine!

Steamed Clams with Luffa: a simple light dish with Chinese okra and clams.

Deep Fried Mushrooms: Light breaded and flash fried. However it is not very well seasoned. I still prefer Jade Restaurant more.

Century Egg Tofu: A cold appetizer with firm tofu and layered with century egg and sprinkled with bonito flakes. This is one of my favorite Taiwanese cold appetizers.

Cod with Soybean: I always loved steamed fish. The fish is moist and tender. Because it has a natural sweet flavor, it is easily enhanced with some minced and stir fried soy beans and soy sauce of topping.

Chicken with Chili Sauce: Tender chicken strips with a sesame chili past sauce. The chicken isn’t spicy and barely has any chili oil.

Although not every dish is very outstanding, but Maji Taiwanese is a good spot for a light fare, sharing amongst friends and late night hang out. Sometimes, you just don’t want bubble tea.

Fu Hang Dou Jiang Taiwan 阜杭豆漿

Fu Hang Dou Jiang Taiwan 阜杭豆漿

TAIWAN - Fu Hang Dou Jiang

 

 

Fu Hang Dou Jiang Taiwan 阜杭豆漿 is another ‘best breakfast in Taiwan” places aside from 永和豆漿大王 Yong He Dou Jang Da Wang (which is also kiddie corner from this building). They have done an impressive job of attracting loyal foodies to queue long lines just for a bite of their infamous shao bing (flatbread breakfast sandwiches). We arrived early 7am and already the placed was filled with people. All other stores in this building were still closed  and/or staring with envy. Remember to come early because this place closes at 10am.

 

TAIWAN - Fu Hang Dou Jiang

 

 

When we arrived at Fu Hang Dou Jiang Taiwan, we thought the lines weren’t too bad. Mistake. Apparently we entered from the other end and the line wraps around down the stairs to the street level and around the building.

Because line ups are so crazy, Fu Hang even provided a guide on how to line up.

Line ups can be boring. In order to keep patrons engaged and waiting, Fu Hang Dou Jiang Taiwan has provided some visuals on their production line. How they make their delicious shao bings, soy milk and fried Chinese donuts since 1958. Non-stop these chefs pour out batches of hot tranditonal Ninjing goodies: roasted flatbreads shao bing 燒餅  and fried Chinese donuts 油條 you tiao.

This place goes thru crates of eggs daily and people buys their breakfast by the box. No wonder there is such a long line up. This is a good sign that the food is really good.

Thick shao bing with egg 厚燒餅蛋加油條: Fu Hang is most famous for their thick flatbeard with egg 厚燒餅蛋加油條. The flatbread has been roasted to a fluffy, crunchy top and chewy center, added sesame for flavour. Lightly glazed with sugar on top. Inside is a pieace of you tiao and fried egg with scallions. 55NT is not only cheap but very satisfying.

 

Fu Hang Dou Jiang 2

 

Sticky Glutinous Rice Roll with Chinese donuts, shredded pork floss and preserved vegetables 糍飯糰: A lot of rice and not enough filling in the middle. Tastes very similar to 永和豆漿大王 Yong He Dou Jang Da Wang but slightly more savory.

 

 

Fu Hang Dou Jiang 2

 

 

Salty Soy Milk Soup 鹹豆漿 25NT: Fresh soy milk that had curdled with vinegar and added with you tiao bites, persevered vegetables, cilantro, scallions and chili oil. This is something you must order here.

 

Fu Hang Dou Jiang 2

 

Brown Rice Drink 米漿: If you are a fan of soy milk, than you must try their rice drink. Sweetly flavoured, it tastes more like a dessert of sesame porridge.  Added with peanuts, this is a drink you can not get enough of.

 

 

Fu Hang Dou Jiang 2

 

Fried radish cake 蘿蔔燒餅: Shredded radish filled center with a deep fried bun and sprinkled with sesame. This bun is so fragrant it’s intoxicating. The soft savory center with radish melts in your mouth.

 

Fu Hang Dou Jiang Taiwan is definitely worth the wait, but I often wonder how people rushing to work can afford to stand in line for 30+ mins.

Yu’s Almond Tofu Taiwan 于記杏仁豆腐 is known for their Almond Milk Desserts. All of Taiwan’s delicacies and must try items. It is located just around the corner from our hotel CityInn Hotel Plus Ximending 新驛旅店西門捷運店. They are famous for their almond tofu, almond shaved ice and almond puff pastries. We went back several times during our stay in Taiwan. Actually we went back everyday. It was just that good.

The shop itself isn’t too big. But it is clean and brightly light. There are several Yu’s Almond Tofu Taiwan locations throughout Taipei, so I’m sure you will be able to locate one nearby. Or you can always visit their website: http://www.yustofu.com.tw.

Almond Tofu 杏仁豆腐 48NT: Store famous dessert. Almond tofu served chill with a packet of almond milk. The tofu is not like soft tofu pudding where it breaks aparts easily. There is rather dense, but impeccably smooth and silky. It is neither too sweet nor too bland. Everything about this almond tofu is incredibly delicious.

Almond Milk with Grass Jelly 仙草杏仁汁 55NT: Silky and creamy almond milk. No grits. Just smooth and rich. Grass jelly adds texture and makes this drink perfectly refreshing.

 

Yus Almond Tofu

Hot Traditional Almond Tofu 熱杏仁豆腐 65 NT: Now this is not like the one above. This is like a soupy bowl of hot almond milk with almond tofu. The tofu has a bit of bite, but it is smooth. There are crushed almonds cooked inside the soup.

 

Whether you chose to nourish yourself with a bowl of cold almond tofu, a cup of almond milk, or even their traditional hot almond tofu soup. It is all naturally scented and gentle on your stomach. We’re so glad we bought some to bring home as ‘souvenirs’. Once you’re well fed, head over to Ximending   for some shopping and more eating.

Richmond Night Market, Richmond (River Rock) | Date Night

Richmond Night Market, Richmond (River Rock) | Date Night

Untitled

There are so many things to do in Vancouver when summer is here. One of the many is indulging in greasy food at the Night Market. This year there are two night markets in Richmond. One being the Richmond Night Market (by River Rock Casino); the other Summer Night Market (behind Home Depot/Bridgeport). The Richmond Night Market prides itself as the “originator” of night market in Richmond. Do you remember the glory days when it was held at Continental Mall (when it was no more than a small stripe in the South parking lot)? Do you remember when it moved to Lansdowne Mall when it occupied the parking lot near No.3 Road? Night Market brings back so many memories…
Untitled
Admission to the Richmond Night Market is $1.50 (stamp cards – buy $10 and get 2 free bonus). Richmond Night Market Parking is free. Driving almost doesn’t sound sane when combating down No. 3 Road traffic. Luckily there is the Canada Line Skytrain which takes it pretty much right to the front door.

 

Before any eating begins, we like to walk around the food stalls and see what everyone has to offer before diving in. I highly recommend doing so because what you see first may not always be the best. With so many stall offering similar food, there is bound to be one with a better deal, better quality, and better flavours! After all the eating is done, why not take a look at the vendors selling random nick nacks of socks, custom jewelry, cell phone cases, jelly bras and contact lens ( i know eh?).

Squid Co. Next to Mega Chicken they have the same signage. Sister companies. Both fresh on the grill and deep fried were all SOLD OUT by the time we arrived. We go the Hot and Spicy and it was quite delicious. A nice kick with moist tender squid.

Chef James Xin Xiang Man BBQ – his fan blew the pungent flavours or lamb skewers in our face and it was hard not to try it. It was alright… The beef on the other hand was mushy and after two bites I threw it away. I’m not really interested in eating bad meat. I see the need to draw in crowds.

Mango. The name saids it all. Variations of mango fruit juice. What is not to love when they use fresh mango meats and other fresh fruits and blends it together for your. This place was less syrupy than some other stalls I’ve tried such as Tea Paradise (1st row of food stalls closest to entrance). But sometimes I do wonder how fresh are there “Fresh Fruits” after its been left in the open for hours? User discretion is advised.
