Weekend Food Tour: Japanese Beef Curry

There's no place to run if I'm craving for Japanese curry as fast as in 7-11 Convenient Store in Taipei. Now that I'm back in the Philippines, I'm beginning to miss this kind of food, and the mix-sliced fresh fruits available 24/7.  Anyways, let you and I drool the food below :)

Bento-Take Out: Cold Noodles

What I like in Taipei during summer, cold noodles are available everywhere. My favorite place to buy is 7-11, yes you heard me there are more than  5,000 "7-11 Convenient Stores in Taiwan" like every corner has one. I bought the peanut dressing (I'm not fun of) and prepared at home by using my favorite sesame dressing. With the cold noodles, I also bought hard boiled egg in tea and fresh mixed vege salad.

Weekend Food Tour: Ordinary Boxed Meal

This is how it looks like! This is not what I like about the Boxed Meal here in Taiwan. Commonly, everything is mix and added in a box. That's why everything taste the same :) Everything is warm and the food taste good, but it's fatty!

Another rice meal for today, it's a burger made of rice! I had difficulty making this kind, but it's worth the effort. I'll be perfect next time! Aside from beef burger, I also had tofu egg, sauteed green beans, fish cake, cucumber, pineapple, and honey dew for desserts.

Weekend Food Tour: Vegetarian Boxed Meal

Everything for today is made from vegetables. From sticky rice dumplings, vegetable rolls, vegetable ball, brown sugar mochi with red bean, and pumpkin with red bean mochi. I went to my favorite Vegetarian Restaurant where all the food will be paid by its weight.

Summer is officially here! After the Dragon Boat Festival yesterday, after eating those heavy sticky rice, it's time to lighten up my meal a bit.

#17 ~ Mixed Grain Rice, Hot Dog, and Tofu

Boat and rice dumplings are always associated with Dragon Boat Festival. If you guys are interested to know one of the story behind this festival, just click my previous post Weekend Food Tour: Dragon Boat Festival  from last year. My meal for today is not glutinous rice, it's a mixed-grained rice that can be bought in supermarket. I added fish flakes and sesame inside, sort of rice dumplings. To eat the mixed grain rice, I prepared hot dog,  fried egg tofu, fruits and vegetables.

#15 ~ Mashed Potato and Beef Teriyaki

I ate dinner meal for breakfast! Last night, I was so excited to see the potato in heart shape and I decided to bake it at once and made it into mashed potato. While the potato is baking, I also made beef teriyaki. This morning  I heated everything back to the oven and voila! I had a good breakfast. I'm not even hungry until 2pm.

#14 ~ Honey Chicken and Beef Wrapped

I didn't realized making bento is addicted and here I am just moved to a new home. Why Boxed Meal? As I've mentioned in my first bento, 便當 Bian Dang (Piandang) is very famous here in Taiwan. Taiwanese adapted it from Japanese (Japanese invaded Taiwan for more than 50 years). Literally, Bian Dang means A Lunch in a Box. For me, I would just like to emphasized that Boxed Lunch could be eaten any time of the day that's why I end up naming this page Boxed Meal.
