Old Cai's Milk Fish/老蔡虱目魚

Rating: Pilgrimage
評等:朝聖

Serving authentic and traditional Taiwanese Milk Fish dishes, this place has been (dis?)graced by the current president and ex-vice president of Republic of China.

Personally, I prefer Ah De's. However, this place is more traditional. I guess back in those "good old days", milk fishes might not be as fresh as today's due to the old cooling and transportation methods. Hence pineapple and black bean saurce was the defacto way for cooking milk fish.

出名的老店。據說馬英九、連戰都來過。

個人較偏好阿得肉燥飯,因其較清甜,比較能凸顯虱目魚的原味。但以古早味而論,虱目魚該用鳳梨豆醬。我想可能古早時冷藏、運輸技術較落後,虱目魚可能沒現在新鮮,所以才流行鳳梨豆醬。





I stole this shot as the hostess was too shy to be taken photo. She insisted that camera puts over 10 pounds on her, even I ensured her charm."



One of their signature dishes: Milk Fish Belly in Pineapple/Black Bean Sauce (fenglidoujiang yudu)


Another classic: Milk Fish Congee (shimuyu zhou)



煎虱目魚肚/Pan Fried Milk Fish Belly

阿桑送這盤上桌時,自信地告訴我,這塊魚肚煎得很水。果然不同凡響。外酥裡嫩且多汁。簡單。完美。

The hostess told me proudly that this piece of fish belly was fried quite well. Crispy on the outside and juicy in the inside. Simply perfect.


白斬雞/Boiled Chicken

簡單的經典。

Another Taiwanese classic. Simply boil the chicken and seasoned with soy sauce. Please do not be alarmed if you recognize the butt tip. I requested it. Please feel free to request for the breast. If you do so, the hostess is going to be thrilled. In Taiwan, most people would prefer feet to breast.
