Greedy people will always be greedy. Even after a huge dimsum lunch (post coming up after this, hell lot of pictures to edit), we can STILL eat.
Anyway, after dimsum and a lot of walking around on Sunday, me, Sis, San, CC and JK decided to have more food. We decided on snacks because it would be less filling (let our minds play tricks on us ok...we're perfectly happy to let it) and popped by a Taiwanese-styled cafe, Ten Ren's Tea Time 天仁茗茶 for tea-snacks. Ten Ren's is a place that predominantly used to sell and serve all kinds of tea (ranging from inexpensive to super expensive, traditional to crazy new concoctions) but now they branched out into food, serving both full meals and snacks.
We chose three snacks to share (see, not that greedy after all). JK and Sis actually ate very little (or not at all). :D
First up, Ten Lu Tea Beef Wrap ($4.80).
It was spiced beef pieces in a wrap with shredded carrots, spring onion and cucumbers. I have to say it's quite tasty, it has a lot of flavours and was spiced just right. The beef pieces were generous and there was a lot to go around. My only complaint was the difficulty of eating it! It was very big and armed with just chopsticks, we practically had to dissect the poor beef wrap to share it.
Next up, Spicy Pepper Chicken ($4.80).
Fragrant, crispy and yummy. Really crunchy on the outside and the chicken meat inside was tender and not overdone. I really like it, and so did San and CC.
Lastly, Taiwanese Spring Onion Pancake ($4.80).
Nothing really wow for this, but it was passable and rather tasty. :)
It's a nice place for hanging out, drinking tea and having snacks. Next time round I shall try their variety of teas. Since tea is good for me and all.
