A-Chino Pineapple Cake Ice Cream Bar

Hot summer is still not leaving Vancouver, which is good news for me – I can make more popsicles. Recently, everyone is talking about this Taiwanese Pineapple Cake Ice Cream Bar (鳳梨酥雪派) from a Taiwanese brand, A-Chino (阿奇儂). It was expensive, which is around $10 for 3 bars. So I decided to replicate this popsicle and made my own version.


[RECIPE] Taiwanese Pineapple Cake (鳳梨酥)

Last night, I revisited the recipe on homemade Taiwanese Pineapple Cake. I previously had a hard time assembling them, and the filling bursted out while baking. I did more research this time, and finally they are nicely shaped and taste great. Though it is not as professional as store bought, it is still a great treat to satisfy my crave on Taiwanese snacks. I compile some tips and techniques, along with the recipe in this blog post. Have fun baking!


An Authentic Bowl of Taiwanese Beef Noodles at Torafuku

Though Vancouver has many Taiwanese restaurants, I haven’t found a place with a good bowl of Taiwanese beef noodles. I noticed that Torafuku launches a new lunch menu, featuring Taiwanese beef noodles. At first, I thought it was just another hyped item, but not until I tried it myself, I am impressed by its flavor and how similar it is to the ones in Taiwan.


Bringing you to JiangHu for Authentic Taiwanese Dishes

Right Next to Hotpot Palace, there is another hidden gem that serves authentic Taiwanese pot and stir-fry dishes – JiangHu. It uses local ingredients to create some unique dishes that you rarely see in Vancouver. Recently, they launched a happy hour for late-night supper, which is best for any late night cravings out there, especially when everything closes early in Vancouver. This event is organized by Issabelle, the Community Manager of Yelp Vancouver, and I was so excited to be part of it. In addition, Feast: Asian Dining Festival also joined us for the night.
