In Taiwan, one would expect amazing Asian food. That's a given. But cultures spread from one country to another, Taiwan now also has a whole assortment of international food, like this restaurant. Though you don't typically find Italian food in Taiwan, I'm sure glad I did because Bite 2 Eat sure is cooking Italian cuisine well. To start off, we tried a savory and sweet pizza for appetizers. For the savory, the BBQ chicken was a great choice. The combo of white sauce and barbecue sauce was a party in my mouth. As for the sweet pizza, we tried the sweet apple and cream cheese. This was really exciting because I had never tried sweet pizza. After one bite, I was in love. Where was this all my life? This pizza was the perfect combo of ooey gooey cheese, sweet cream cheese, and crisp apples. Plus the fact that all of that was on top of a pizza base makes it even better.
If their pizzas were that delicious, I couldn't wait for our main courses. I ordered their seafood risotto and it was so creamy, amazing, and had an abundance of seafood. I savored every grain of it. Another risotto dish I recommend is the chicken pesto risotto. First of all, I didn't know you could have pesto risotto but I'm glad someone experimented with that combination. The risotto was very fragrant and the chicken that topped it all off was super succulent. Some other amazing dishes are the salmon and seafood linguine. And for dessert, their luscious creme brulee and fluffy tiramisu are musts. As shown from all these mouthwatering dishes, these Taiwanese chefs know how to cook Italian food!
I decided to check this place out because they have super long lines and great reviews. I tried the acclaimed katsu curry. It had a nice crunchy breading with tender pork inside. Their curry had good flavor and spice. To eat this dish, you gotta eat a little of everything in a bite. You get a little katsu soaked in curry with a scoop of rice. The pickles cut through the richness and add nice freshness. Though this dish was good, it didn't live up to the expectation I had of it. I honestly would not wait in a long line for this again.
Happy crab season! To celebrate this amazing seafood season, we went to PPQ Dungess Island. We ordered crab as part of the dinner for two combo. Since we had four people, we ordered fried rice and sea bass in addition to this combo. The dinner for two combo started off with imperial rolls, fried egg rolls with veggies inside. They were super yummy and crunchy and even came with a salad on the side to make you feel better about eating something fried :P Then for the main dish, we selected the garlic roasted crab. I definitely recommended this flavor. Garlic and crab are delicious best friends. As for the shiitake sea bass, it was super tender and had a mouthwatering soy sauce based sauce. I could not get enough of that sauce.
To go with the seafood, we had garlic noodles and fried rice, and they were enjoyable. And to finish the crab feast off, the combo included fried banana with ice cream. I don't eat this dessert enough and I really should. This is a dish of juxaposition. The hot with the cold. The crunchy with the creamy. These contrasts make the dish unforgettable. Mmm what a way to end the meal.
