Jin Feng Braised Pork Rice in Taipei, Taiwan

Rou Geng and Lu Rou Fan

Yeah, I know I had just eaten a multi-course meal earlier. So in all honesty, I stopped at this place out of greed (10 Roosevelt Road Section 1, 2396-0808). Besides, it was just a little bowl of lu rou fan, and it was right next to the subway station on the way back to the hotel.

I shouldn't have done it. The lu rou fan was unremarkable, as it wasn't the fatty and mildly sweet that I was expecting. That thick geng soup wasn't anything special either, as it was slightly sweet, and I had to spike it with a good amount of vinegar and pepper to make it work. I won't come back.

I used to follow your blog back in 2008 when I was living in Singapore (also from Cali), and have enjoyed exploring the places you've recommended. A minute ago I decided to start cleaning out my old bookmarks and saw your blog and thought I'd check to see if it was active. I'm delightfully surprised that you're still going strong 10 years later and keeping up with your content. It may just be your own personal diary of food, or you may still have a big following, but it makes me happy none the less. Happy travels and thanks!
