The blog has been a little sparse on the updates recently. Most likely because Ken and I haven’t been eating out at new restaurants a lot – we have been cooking at home, ordering our usual salads for dinner, or just getting something on the go (on our own!) Ken has also been traveling and we just haven’t had time to dine out at new restaurants recently.

Since Ken was out of town on a boys trip (golf, of course), I went with my cousin and his girlfriend to a Taiwanese restaurant on St. Marks, TKettle:


Hsiao-Mei was in the mood for the chicken at TKettle, which is made with breast meat and lightly fried and seasoned. We ordered the sampler as an appetizer (you can choose three different types of fried goodies for $9.99):


We ordered the Taiwanese fried chicken, the fried tofu, and the fried fish cakes, which are fried and then served with long skewers (just like in Taiwan at the night markets!) They are pretty plain without lots of seasoning, but we seasoned with lots of cayenne pepper and white pepper.

For Andrew’s entree, he ordered the sesame noodles with won tons and veggies:


And Hsiao-Mei and I ordered a bento box – she ordered the Taiwanese fried chicken and I ordered the Taiwanese fried pork chop:


The bento boxes come with white rice that is topped with meat, some vegetables, and half of a tea egg. Everything is served semi-plain and then you season on your own.

The food is pretty decent and it was packed in there because everyone was getting their bubble tea fix. We didn’t get any bubble tea because it was too cold outside, but there are so many flavors there that it’s definitely a good spot if you’re in the mood for bubble tea or something quick to eat.
