Mos Burger and Mr Donut!

January 28, 2010 in Food, Taiwan, Travel by pacejmiller

Two of my favourite places in Japan are the chains Mos Burger (fast food restaurant) and Mr Donut (…donuts).

And in Taiwan, they have both!

Mos Burger

Mos Burger is one of the few places that actually has a burger after which the restaurant is named.  That’s right.  At Mos Burger you can order a Mos Burger.

But the best thing at Mos Burger is the Wafu Fried Chicken.  Not only is it tasty, it is surprisingly un-oily.  You can push your serviette into it and there’d be no oil stain!  And check out the clever Japanese holding wrapper.  You don’t even have to get your hands dirty.

Mr Donut

Mr Donut has awesome donuts.  The best thing about them is that they’re not overly sweet, which is rare for donuts.  And they come in a wide variety of flavours and styles – whether it’s chocolate or strawberry glaze or cream-filled centres or these weird ball-type donuts, Mr Donut has it all.

Yuan Shao BBQ Restaurant

Restaurant: Yuan Shao
Cuisine: BBQ set meals
Price: TWD 598 per head (+ 10% service charge)
Location: See below

If you are into DYI BBQs, then you can’t go past Yuan Shao BBQ Restaurant in Taiwan.

For just TWD 598 per person (with 10% service charge), you can enjoy an assortment of delicious courses sandwiched around a platter of meat you cook yourself on a grill built in to your table.

The quality of the food and service is truly exquisite.  Quite simply put, it is one of the best places you could ever go to for an enjoyable night out.

Each Course offers a variety of options to choose from (you only get to pick one).  I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.

Are Tennis Players Too Soft These Days?

Are players like Novak Djokovic too soft?

This morning on TV, I heard one of the most ridiculous comments I’ve heard in a long time.

That the professional tennis players of today are too soft.

The commentator then complained about how players these days get injury timeouts and toilet breaks, and how footballers, who get banged up night in and night out, don’t (yeah, they just piss on the field!).  For players who earn millions of dollars a year (just the top players, really), shouldn’t they just suck it up and keep going?
