Chocolate mousse with vanilla cream puff, the chef must have had fun when creating this delicious multiple-layer cake!

Pfeffersteak

Seerestaurant im Weissen Rössl, March 2008 in St. Wolfgang, Austria

Famed for the same titled operetta, the hotel is mentioned in every touristic book about St. Wolfgang at Wolfgangsee.

On that day I was longing for a big steak, so I told them my wish. Even if this Pfeffersteak wasn’t on the menu, the kitchen at 2:00 pm still pulled off one of the best steak I’ve ever had in Austria.

*Pfeffersteak: Steak with a sauce of green pepper, white wine, and cream.
**My observation is that in Austria they produce very good quality beef, but the American style of cooking steak (grill a thick piece of beef) is somehow not as popular.

Beef Noodle Soup

Homemade, November 2008 in Vienna, Austria

Beef noodle soup is one of the most representative food in Taiwan, and it is also the dish I miss most when I’m abroad. So I try to make it by myself, as many other drifting souls do.

Restaurant Bánlaki, November 2008 in Vienna, Austria

This is actually at a good friend’s place. He is such a passionate hobby cook and a perfectionist that I always feel as if I were in a star restaurant when invited to his house.

Steirereck, August 2008 in Vienna, Austria

*Updated on November 29th:
I regret that I couldn’t find any words to describe this lovely looking dessert. The truth is, the gentleman of our table was so attentive and served us so much wine that I can’t remember anymore how the dessert tasted…
