Food Porn

Taipei, why do you have to be so full of temptations? There’s food at every street corner, and to make things worse,  it’s all food that I love!

When I was interning at Pingtung, food temptation was never really an issue. It took 15 minutes to bike to the nearest 7-11, and other than that, there really isn’t much to snack on. Yesterday I went for a stroll around Taipei (mostly in the Danshui area) and came home with fried chicken, red bean cakes (車輪餅), lemon green tea, and a box of donuts. That doesn’t even include the mango cream puff I had earlier.

Feast your eyes, people! Mister Donuts has seasonal banana flavoured doughnuts right now. It’s aight~ My favourite is still the soy bean pon de ring. I miss their pon de kakuto.. Pon de rings… such yummy, chewy goodness!

Mister Donut

Someone should seriously bring Mister Donut to Vancouver.. If I had the money and potential to do so, I would have done it a long time ago. This brand of donuts from Japan is seriously the best donuts I have ever had!

我最喜歡的口味是黑五穀糖波提~ (Pon de kokuto). 它們的波提不會太甜、太膩;味道剛剛好! :) The best part about their pon de ring donuts is that it’s chewy. In my opinion it’s much better than the soft, cake-like kind.

Everytime I go back to Taiwan I always pay them a visit!

So many donuts!

But apparently a large majority of people living in Canada prefer Krispy Kreme or Dunkin’ donuts? They think Mister Donut isn’t sweet enough.. I beg to differ. I cannot stand the sweetness of many American desserts. When I first tried a Krispy Kreme, I was very disappointed. After hearing so many people rave about it, I thought it was just another average and overly-sweet donut. It did not meet up to my expectations. 我覺得亞洲的點心還是最好吃的。
