We can’t travel to Taipei for now but we can still savour 吃在台北 eat at Taipei’s offerring of Taiwanese street food and snacks. eat at Taipei’s outlets in Kallang Wave, SAFRA Toa Payoh and Tampines Mall remain open for takeaway. Delivery is also available through the usual platforms. There are attractive bundle deals on the online menu; and you can even order bubble tea.
We have eaten at 吃在台北 eat at Taipei previously (see our post 吃在台北 eat at Taipei in Singapore Sports Hub), and have tried popular items such as Braised Minced Pork Rice, Braised Beef Noodles and Vermicelli in Sesame Oil Chicken Soup. eat at Taipei has a rather extensive menu, giving a fair representation of the variety of snacks and street food popular in Taiwan.
eat at Taipei Online Menu
eat at Taipei has an Online Menu and orders can be made online for self-pick up or delivery. The online menu is not as comprehensive as its normal menu. On the online menu are mainly one dish rice and noddle meals. Die hard bubble tea fans may be glad to know that milk tea with pearls is on the menu. Currently, eat at Taipei is also offering, in collaboration Typhoon Cafe, a Milk Tea Series and Fresh Milk Tea Series including the very popular Brown Sugar Milk Tea.
The online menu of eat at Taipei has 2 attractively price bundle sets. A Set for 2 at $19.90 where we get to pick 2 Mains, 2 Staples and 2 Drinks. The set for 5 is $45.90 and we will have the option to choose 5 Mains, 5 Staples and 5 Drinks.
We went for the bundle for 2 and ordered San Bei Chicken and Radish Omelette as the mains and mee sua and plain steamed rice for the staples. The ordering process was simple and our food was ready for collection at the appointed time.
San Bei Chicken & Radish Omelette
None of our photos of the food would be shortlisted for Instagram picture of the day. Maybe we need to use our stay at home time to take an online creative photography course. However, I think our photo of the mee sua was a rather true representation of reality. The mee sua tasted as simple and bland as it looked in the photo.
Fortunately, the San Bei Chicken and Radish Omelette were more interesting and tasty, notwithstanding our below average photos of the 2 items. The Taiwanese Three Cup Chicken (San Bei Ji), with a sauce prepared with soy sauce, rice wine and sesame oil, was quite enjoyable. The chicken was tender and well coated with the thick sauce. It went very well with plain steamed rice.
Radish Omelette, or more accurately preserved radish omelette or chai poh neng to us locals, was a rather straightforward dish. There were quite a lot of chai poh bits and they were not salty. They probably used the sweet preserved radish. The egg omelette was quite thick and fluffy. It would go very well with porridge – but we made do with the plain mee sua.
In case you were wondering – no, we did not go for the bubble tea (because they involved addons to the bundle set price). We just got 2 cans of soft drinks as part of the bundle.
Decent meal at reasonable price
The food did not look great and there was no wow factor. However, the bundle set was reasonably priced and the ordering and pick up process was simple and convenient. When we need a simple decent meal at home, takeaway from 吃在台北 eat at Taipei beats cooking instant noodles for ourselves.
