檢視較大的地圖

兩個字:澎湃。

澎湃到有點暴發戶的俗氣。先別給照片嚇到,是我要求要肥一點的。點菜時,老板會貼心地問:是要肥、瘦,還是適中的?

One Word: Grandeur

Please do not be intimidated by the fat in the picture. That was my request. The host would ask your preference on meat. Whether fatter, leaner, or in between.

NT$ 55

別家的爌肉飯,是一碗飯上面舖一層酸菜,一小片爌肉;這家的是半碗飯上面堆一大坨酸菜,再幾大塊(不是片)爌肉。這樣已經夠誇張的了,可是老板好像很沒自信,覺得似乎還嚇不死人,還在上面多砸一個煎蛋。這種做法,可以說是前無古人,後無來者:古時候的臺灣窮瘋了,吃不起;未來的臺灣瘋養生,沒福氣。自認高級的人,可能會覺得這是暴發戶的俗氣,沒有“哀而不傷,樂而不淫”的境界。但是換個角度看,就可以感到老板的熱情與誠意。這樣一碗五十五,真是俗得不能再俗,臺得不能再臺。自認臺客的,必需來此朝聖。

偶然發現這家店,我可是感動到差點要流馬尿。跟吳家滷肉飯比起來,吳家是吃巧,這家是吃飽;吳家的爌肉Q,這家的酥而不爛;吳家精緻,這家豪邁。分庭抗禮,各擅勝場。

In other places, marinated pork rice is defined as a bowl of rice with a thin layer of Taiwanese sauerkraut, and a slice of marinated pork. In this place, however, is half bowl of rice, with a pile of Taiwanese sauerkraut, and giant chunks of marinated pork. As if not confident enough to scare people to death, the host also throw in an over easy egg on top of the pile. I do not think you can find this kind of dinning style in any other space or time in Taiwan. Back in those "good" old days, Taiwanese were too poor to afford this; Nowadays, Taiwanese has become health freaks and lost their guts to have this much fun. This is definitely over killing. On the other hand, this can also be interpreted as the passion and sincerity of the host. This is so very Taiwanese. The better part of it, at least.

I was almost in tears as I discover this treasure. Compared with Wu's Family Braised Pork Rice, Wu's is for sheer taste, this a hearty meal; Wu's is delicate, this grandeur.

Milk Fish Soup/虱目魚羹:NT$30

2014/4/18 Update:
The price for the marinated pork rice has been raised to NT$60, and portion also increased.
爌肉飯小漲5元,但分量有增加。
