Late night soya supper@Yong He Dou Jiang, Taipei

It was rather difficult to get here, with many interchange stops between MRTs and you got to walk a little bit too from the nearest stop. But good thing is the place runs 24 hours daily (how in the world???), so even if you got lost, you needn’t rush yourself. But in future, I’d probably hitch a cab here instead.


The place was filled with patrons, locals and tourists. At this was 10pm. Wow. I had never had tau too far this late. And to add a twist to it, a savoury one!

Having “breakfast” at night reminds me of my cereal nights at home haha. The whole thing cost only RM10. The roti canai thing was just average. But the yao char kueh, oh my gosh. Fluffiest one ever eaten. In my entire trip here, and even in Malaysia.


With this fluffy fried yao char kueh, dipped in the yummylicious savoury tau foo far, beats any porridge or main meals any time!

The smoothness of the TFF jst glided in your throat, coupled with amazingly flavoured condiments. Till today, I dream of having my next bowl of this!


This creamy white deliciousness are constantly stirred 24/7. Respect the workers here for their tenacity to work such long hours. We are all very happy with your food servings!

I am definitely coming back for more on my next trip to Taipei! Savoury TTF, till then! *salutes*

Cup noodles are the in-thing@Mr Lobster’s Secret Den, Taipei


Convenient stores are a way of life in Taipei. Every street, every road, every corner..lies a convenient store, including this shabby building as well.

After checking in, and taking a good 2-hour nap, miss tummy came knocking on brain’s door. Knock knock knock. Growl growl growl.

We went down and bought some spicy flavoured cup noodles for late lunch.

Mr Lobster’s Den dining area has a nice bar table with high stools with a view overlooking the neighbourhood.


After I left high school, I dropped the love of instant noodles after noticing that my hair strands turned white and managed to avoid buying them for years, unless I have no other choices left on a hungry day…then I would cook it at home.

Until coming to Taipei, I felt my years of abstinence replenished all in one week. And I know why too.

Damnit, their instant cup noodles tasted so good!


Each pack only cost about RM 3.50, and I fell in love with the one with sliced pork. Full of flavour and it came with generous pork bits too. The texture of the noodles was chewy, tangy and slurpy!

On the final day in Taipei, I went to Carrefour and bought back 20 bowls of ’em. No regrets! When I come back again, I am going to buy more!
