Taipei 101 has the largest and finest food court in Taipei. Located at basement level 1, the foodcourt offers a wide variety of cuisines, ranging from Chinese, Korean, Hong Kong and even fast food. This is indeed a gem to try out great foods.
We had Hong Kong cuisine at (成港式料理) and ordered ourselves a Chicken Thigh hot plate. The hot plate was a disappointment. The meat seem to have been fried and then put onto the plate. The vegetables like kai lan, bean sprouts and cabbage were also put on the sizzling hot plate. Every pre-prepared single item on the dish was merely placed onto the hot place. (Food rating: 2/5)
I ordered the spicy chilli dog and the taste was similar to the ones back home. It is still as delicious. (Food rating: 2.5/5)
As part of the set meal, there were Chicken Nuggets with Chinese sauce. The chicken nuggets were normal. However, the Chinese Sauce was different. The tangy sauce made the nuggets more delicious and addictive. (Food rating: 2.5/5)
Xiaonanmen Traditional Beancurd (小南門傳統豆花) is also located in the food court. We ordered two desserts - Red bean, coloured glutinous rice balls, yam balls, and beancurd, peanut and mini tapioca balls.
The red bean, coloured glutinous rice balls and yam balls soup was a simple dessert soup. The rich red bean soup was delicious. The glutinous rice balls reminded me of the tang yuan I used to eat made by my grandmother. The red beans and yam balls were chewy too. The sweetness was just nice too. Suddenly, I felt like cooking myself a nice bowl of the dessert. (Food rating: 4/5)
Xiaonanmen is famous for its soya bean curd. We ordered bean curd, peanuts and mini tapioca balls. The peanuts were fragrant. The bean curd was soft. The peanut soup base was delicious. (Food rating: 4/5)
