Mother Chu's Taiwanese Gourmet

Mother Chu's is one of those places that has been around for just about always. It's good for a meal and also a good option when you just want to have a small snack. The "Taiwanese Beef Noodle Soup" has a nice peppery, chilli kick and good beef taste with bitey noodles. I decided to try the "Savoury Mince Congee" for the first time and it turned out to be a good choice - nice consistency and a light flavour, enough not to require any soya sauce (for me anyway). I can never say no to the "Omelette with Preserved Vegetable" as I love asian style omelettes and the addition of preserved vegetables makes for a great pairing. On this occassion the preserved vegetable didn't have much flavour though, maybe they're using a different kind to before. There was also a glass of cold sweet soya bean drink to complete the Taiwanese meal. I also like sitting at the little outdoor tables that run alongside the restaurant in the arcade, it makes me feel like I'm in Asia!!
