happy new year from taipei!

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Can you believe it's 2007 already??!!!





Had a nice dinner at the Ambassador Hotel and then some late night snacks at a company party.


finger foods





shark fin soup



shabu shabu pork- super tender- try both dipping sauces...


and shabu shabu broth and vegetables..


dessert- peanut soup and chinese doughnut sticks



I was an invited guest, so I don't know how much the dinner was, but everything tasted delicious and the service was great. So I would recommend Szechuan Court also since this hotel has been around for a very long time- probably one of the first international hotels in Taipei.


angel cakes




I must be getting old... it's not even 2AM and I'm probably going to turn in for the night. I'm just glad I'm not stuck in the traffic.. it was madness after midnight.
