This is a fairly standard evening meal, no frills or anything. But, let’s face it, it looks pretty interesting?

It’s right near ShiDa nightmarket and MRT Taipower Building Station, prime student area.

You can get a meal from $90 – $160 depending on what you fancy – not a bad evening meal price, really.
Here’s what we ordered:
1. 特製蛋包飯 (茄汁飯) tè zhì dàn bāo fàn  (qié zhī fàn ) 
Special egg covered tomato rice
$100
 
2. 咖哩豬肉蛋包飯 kā lī zhū ròu dàn bāo fàn 
Pork with curry over egg covered rice
$130
Soup is provided and you can refill your own drinks.

This sauce is very close to the sweet and sour sauce which you can find in many Cantonese take outs in the UK. It’s not my favourite, but it’s ok. The tomato rice inside is just a pink coloured rice flavoured with tomato. Again, it’s just ok. No meat in this dish, but filling, nonetheless.

I feel like its certainly worth spending the extra $30 to order the curry one with pork. There are plenty of pork pieces and the curry is slightly sweet with a mild curry powder flavour – a lot like Japanese curry.

If we take a look inside, you can see the rice that is secreted inside.
Please note that this egg is delicious on top of the rice – it is scrambled and fried in one piece then placed on top of the rice. The curry one is delicious.
Overall, if you’re on a budget or not looking for anything that will particularly blow your mind, but still looking for something new – then this is a good place to go.
