Today was pretty chill. Not too much walking around so we weren’t too tired. Plus many of the others got to nap before dinner. HAHA We’re so old.
We stopped by a bakery for Sissy to pick up bread for breakfast while I picked up an egg tart.
Then we all rode the metro to meet Billy. He was also visiting from the states so we decided to meet up with him. And go to various locations with one Michelin Star because anything else would be … too expensive.
After walking around in circles, we finally found Billy in front of Tim Ho. I don’t think they kept their Michelin Star … plus it wasn’t all that great. I wouldn’t really want to go here again …
Afterward we took the metro to Kam’s Roast Goose. We were there early and waited in line. When we were finally seated, we ordered half a roasted goose with four yin yuen. The lady probably thought it was ridiculous to order so little for six people but they didn’t know we were doing a quick food tour. The duck was on the super fatty side. Was it good, yes, but is it worth the super thick layer of fat you had to peel off and drain? … no.
We stopped by street food of egg waffles and waffle with peanut butter and probably condensed milk. Mmm .. memories. Those can never go wrong except … I woudn’t get it from this place. The egg waffles were a little overcooked to where they were too crispy, no bite. Then we went into some shops and looked around.
Last place we decided on was Din Tai Fung, famous for it’s steamed soup dumplings. This is very famous in Taiwan and now they have it in so many places. Since this was our last stop, we decided to order a lot more. It ended up being everyone’s favourite place.
We said our goodbyes to Billy and all decided to go back to our abode and rest up before a long ride out to the boondocks to see my Grandma’s brother and wife. I wasn’t able to nap like the others but it was nice getting to just chill and not be on the go all the time. I feel like ever since we jumped off the plane, we’ve been going nonstop to see places and people.
We went out to their place and chilled a bit in their home before walking to Victoria Harbour Restaurant. Apparently from here, it’s only a ten minute walk to China … how crazy is that?
My dad per usual ordered WAY too much food. We were all stuffed and he was still eating. Ugh … gross. It’s 12am here and everyone’s knocked out. No matter what time we get back, I feel like we just knock out due to our long hours out in the sun.
Sissy gave me some pills to eat in hopes I’ll get more sleep since I got sick from the AC and lack of sleep. Hopefully I wake up tomorrow. teehee
