    Default Alternative Ice Kacang - Xue Hua Bing

    Haha.. for those foodies and lovers of Taiwanese food,

    Here's something that's quite exclusive - Taiwan's Xue Hua Bing (Snow.Flower.Ice).
    Had my first bowl in Taiwan and never forget the taste.. so for those who would like to try or to reminisce the taste again.. you can go to Woodlands Civic Center. There's like a minifood fair there near the Macdonald's...

    Heehee...

    Xiang Ji Pa - (literally) Fragrant Chicken Steak
    A roadside delicacy where a big chicken steak's deep-fried and later cut up into bite sized pieces, seasoned with chilli power and a little MSG powder... power! Advised to eat during cold days when it's just fried....

    Tampines.. can't remember where liao.. need to go find again.. haven't really been there but hope the Ji pa is as good as the ones in Taiwan (but I doubt it)

    The xue hua bing came close

    I'll be going back to Taipei on Monday! Where can I go for xuehuabing?

    The basement food court of the Far Eastern Plaza Mall has a stall selling douhua (bean curd). That is the closest to taohuey in Singapore I can get before actually going back to Singapore next weekend. They also have a store selling Hainanese Chicken Rice. Quite authentic also.

    I will be staying in Taipei, in the Grand Hyatt Hotel (near to the Sun Yat Sen Memorial). I am actually at the HK airport now waiting to board the plane.

    Last month when I was there I did go to Hua Si Jia (the Snake Alley, right?). But I did not notice any xuehuabing. Much pay a visit again this time and look closer.
