Apparently Hakka fried noodles (客家炒麵, NT$90) is mushu fried noodles with a slightly different sauce – at least at this restaurant. Also ordered shrimp fried rice for the kid (蝦仁炒飯, NT$90). They offer unlimited green bean soup (which, according to the sign, is sometimes red bean soup).

I’d come again to try more of their 熱炒 dishes. Convenient if you’re in the Wufenpu clothing district.

A yakiniku kind of day. Love the runny egg. This was the first thing on the menu, 大豚山丼飯 for NT$200. Pretty decent portion, and self-serve tea + miso soup.

simplified characters in Taiwan

Not sure why and when people use simplified characters in Taiwan. If it were simply a matter of ease in writing, it would be more prevalent. Here it says 周年庆 instead of 週年慶.

Lightning Hair

Watching an old school Hong Kong police film at an old school knife noodle shop. In the film, a young, water-skiing Tony Leung gets hit by lightning – and thus his hair is as pictured.
