Nassas - All-you-can-eat western food place

We went to this place called NASSAS in Taipei, Taiwan. The place charges NTD399 = 10% tax (approx USD15) per person and they serve assorted cooked food like ribs, fried chicken, french fries, hamburger patties, mashed potato and others. The drinks are also unlimited and they also have a decent selection of cakes and ice cream. Yum!.... but a bit too filling... my fasting streak went down the drain in that one meal... Was it worth it? Well, kinda... hehehe :D

Cake2Go Tiramisu cake

James bought this cake for me (Jenny) on my birthday. I think it cost him about PHP515 (approximately USD15). It wasn't as good as we expected, but it was pretty decent. I insisted on having a cake from Cake2Go, because I had previously tasted one of their cakes and it was positively one of the best cakes I've tried; I think it was chocolate. I should probably order a chocolate-flavored one next time...

They deliver too!

Paotsin Beef Wanton

I would like to include the good ol' faithful paotsin dimsums which filled up a lot of my lunches and snacks. I remember having paotsin for lunch for a whole month! This one on the picture is paotsin's steamed beef wanton with sweet chili sauce and hainanese rice. It's not exactly my favorite but it is one of the most convenient food choices I have here in Makati as it is right here in the building and I don't have to go very far to have a full meal. Choices includes a wide variety of dimsums and dumplings, sauces choices are: sweet, sweet chili, toyomansi (soy sauce with lime) or a mix of sauces, the dimsum may be steamed or fried, then the rice may be hainanese, plain or seafood. :)
