Quick trip to Taiwan c/o Fat Fook Kitchen

This eating season’s definitely making me miss the dishes of Taiwan. It’s simply eating heaven for me! What with all those night markets that’s just not a feast for one’s shopping eyes but for the tummies too. It might take awhile before I visit that land again. So for now, the dishes from Fat Fook Kitchen will do.

They’ve got a nice roster of dishes up their sleeves. And of course, they have the usual fave Taiwanese dishes. As for the place, I wasn’t able to get a good photo of it. I did get the somewhat iconic plate wall that’s really Instagram-worthy.

Wintermelon Tea (P98)

Not sure if I got the right order here. I specifically ordered for Wintermelon Tea but I didn’t expect it to have milk in it. So, I got a Wintermelon Milk Tea I guess. In terms of taste, it was a decent drink. It was served in like a tub form but if you stretch the cup a little, it would be a large size of most milk tea shops.

Taiwanese Sausage (P328)

Simply yummy! I liked those slices of garlic in between. I had a bite of this sausage with those garlic slices, and it made for one interesting flavor. It balanced out the sweetness of that sausage.

Pork Xiao Long Bao (5 pcs for P168)

Though the skin was a bit thick, it still held the soup well. Nothing striking with the flavor but it was a decent Pork Xiao Long Bao.

Taiwan Style Fried Noodles (P228)

This was truly tasty! You could taste the sauce on each noodle here. It had this umami factor in it that makes it one flavorful noodle dish.

Kiampong (P368)  

There was something about this dish that didn’t sit well with me. I didn’t mind its sticky consistency. But I had an aftertaste with the spices added here. It was flavorful all on its own. Maybe, it’s an acquired taste but I’ll skip this one out.

Fried Crispy Wonton (P258)

Don’t skip out on this! I loved the flavor and the crunchy exterior. It went well with the served sauce too.

Fat Fook Chicken Chop (P308)

This has got to be one of their bestselling dishes. The chicken was fried well, and didn’t leave me with that greasy feel. Though I wish it had more of that spice in. It’s not comparable to that from Taiwan but it’s good enough.

This is a mix of hits and misses for me. Surprisingly, their famous dishes didn’t astound me much. I preferred the others which I find to be hidden gems of this restaurant; namely, their Taiwanese Sausage, Taiwan Style Fried Noodles and Fried Crispy Wonton. Their price range differs but borders on being still affordable. It’s best to share it with friends or family who miss those Taiwanese dishes, or just want to try some.
