SINGAPORE: i ♥ taimei @ Bugis Village

  • Sumo

To be honest, I really love Taimei(s)


You may ask,


Who is she/ who are they?!


They are… 


Selina, Ella, Hebe, Jolin Tsai, Xiao S, Da S…………….

See, taimei!!!
I like the idea where they name the food on the menu after Taiwanese celebrities!

Quirky menu, isn’t it?!

 I  taimei is run by young Taiwanese sisters who are passionate foodies. These ladies found that there isn’t much Taiwanese food / snack around Singapore. That was why they started up I  taimei 2 years ago.

The combo comes with the main course, a side dish and a drink. The set is priced at sgd 7.40 onwards

And since Selina is the number 1 bestseller, we had it.
Selina is actually the BBQ crispy chicken 碳烤鸡排. The deep fried chicken (Ji Pai) drizzled with spicy-sweet BBQ sauce came piping hot. We had to leave it for a while to cool it down before digging in.

As for side dish, We chose Sweet potato 甘梅地瓜
Yummy, this is something I like. Thick cuts of sweet potato, deep fried, and coated with lots of plum powder.

Caramel Milk Tea with Grass Jelly 焦糖奶茶. The milk tea from  I  taimei has nothing to shout out about. You can get the better one at Koi / Gong Cha. Well, it was still a decent cup of milky tea with chewy stuff in it.

We ordered something extra – Tofu Fries 豆腐薯条 (Sgd 2.50) flavored with seaweed. The other flavours you can pick are cheese, BBQ, goric seafood, spicy mexico, wasabi and curry. Hmmm, sgd 2.50 for this little pack was kinda pricey.

Singaporeans really love Taiwanese snack a lot. From the bubble tea craze to these Taiwanese street food, the queue can be very long any day, any time.
