S01E5: Le Food & Le Drink: Taiwanese Beef Noodle Soup (Recipe)

You’ll have to excuse me for this post because the last recipe I wrote up was in primary school as part of those class exercises. Probably for Fairy Bread or something (the best).

Something a bit different this time for this series of food posts; a recipe. I think most of us feel like a homely meal is always the best despite the great food that’s out there. Food brings back memories and it’ll always have that link.

For me, a good bowl of Taiwanese Beef Noodle Soup from mum has always been one of my favourite dishes and it would always be exciting when she cooks it. However it’s been years since she’s last cooked this and I don’t think she’ll be doing it again anytime soon so.. she’s tried passing it onto me!

It's like having a master class! Gotta take notes..

USA Trip ’12-’13 – Day 26

Landed in Boston today but seriously I only had one thing in mind today.. The Bulls v Celtics game! Their last road trip game of the latest 9 I think.

Before that but.


Not sure if you can tell but there are a lot of snow / ice patches around. Crazy, I can’t believe it’s colder than Chicago here.

Taiwan Trip ’11 – Day 8+

Been in the country.

Went to Chia Yi on Sunday to Monday to see my Uncle’s family, good to see that they’re doing alright!

Had some great food and then Monday night we went to Er Lin (country side).

Have not been doing much because there isn’t too much to do hahaha.

Will be going to visit a popular Chinese tourist place: “Ri Yue Tan” (日月潭) – Sun Moon Lake on Saturday.

I might have to upload those photos when Im back in Australia, expect great ones :).

Back to being offline…

To celebrate my eldest aunty's birthday 🙂
