海角七號 Cape of Seven

This movie has gained a sudden and unexpected widespread popularity in Taiwan.
Such popularity got me curious too.

And I have been trying to find time to watch it.
I just have to catch it before I leave for my holidays!

人說好看,有人說不好看. 見仁見智.

Story line, nothing too complicating.  90% of the dialogue are in Hokkien. The humour and romance elements are in.

However, what captivates me the most? The beautiful sceneries of Taiwan.

Apart from the  great street snacks, bubble tea and CashBox,  Taiwan’s 乡土明清 is what I  like about this island of an unique identity 。

I have yet to visit the southern part. After watching this movie, I definitely have to make some future plans soon. ^^

黑猪又如何?

C has been harping on the word, “Tampopo”, once we mentioned we were going to Liang Court for lunch.

It’s a ramen shop tucked away on the first floor in the refurbished Liang Court.

Their specialty? Black Pig’ ramen. Black pig aka Berkshire pork for the West, or Kurobuta pork in Japan.

Their iconic dish is ramen; but the tonkatsu just lured me away!

One bite, you could tell the difference. No exaggeration. It doesnt taste like the regular piece of pork.  Not a bit of dryness. Not a bit of toughness. Wow.

Ramen wise, perhaps Im still more a soba noodles person. I just dont know how to appreciate it. And I always find miso stock too overly salty.
