Dinner is never complete without dessert 🙂

A very nice treat on a hot, hazy and humid night.

We eat daily and sometimes, choosing what to eat can be a difficult decision especially in Singapore where the choice is endless… Ken texted to ask if I would like to do an early dinner but he had no inkling where to go or what to eat. This was so timely as I have a place I wanted to explore and was looking for someone with an appetite to go with. At the back of my mind, I think my dinner choice would also please Jessica from http://jesscy.com/ as we’re talking about Taiwanese “small eats” 台湾小吃 here.

Do not fooled by the name “small eats” (xiaochi 小吃). The items may be small in portions but there are plenty of choices and everything looks and tastes so yummy, you simply do not want to miss out on anything. So going with a group of friends or someone with big appetite ensures you getting to taste at least a few goodies than dining alone.

8 Degrees Taiwanese Bistro has a few outlets and is growing their presence in Singapore. I heard from Pamela that they will be introducing a “jamming” facility on the second floor of their Beach Road outlet soon (probably in a couple more weeks’ time – they are presently awaiting the appropriate licenses to be granted). The name of the restaurant was inspired by one of Jay Chou’s album 八度空间 and they play his songs in all their outlets. In case you have no idea, Jay Chou is a Taiwanese musician, singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and actor. In 1998 he was discovered in a talent contest where he displayed his piano and song-writing skills.

I am not a fan of Jay Chou but I would not hesitate to go back to 8 Degrees Taiwanese Bistro again to try the other items like the Fried Chicken Cutlets, Scallion Pancakes, etc… I am rather happy that there was no msg attack on me so it’s either none or very minimal in their food plus they have efficient and friendly service 😉
