Sizzling Pot King

Sizzling Pot King

Sizzling Pot King Sizzling Pot King is a Chinese restaurant specializing in dry hot pots. The restaurant replaced Qi Wei, a similar-style restaurant, towards the end of last year and has been quite popular.

Four Sea Restaurant

Four Sea Restaurant

Four Sea Restaurant When I think of Taiwan, one of the things I miss the most is Taiwanese breakfast. There are so many traditional Taiwanese foods that are available for breakfast including egg pancakes, soy milk, fried crullers, and rice rolls. And for some reason, it’s really hard to find good versions of those items […]

Craftsman and Wolves
