MUME is “a chance to discover what is unique and special about Taiwan,” he said, “and to showcase it to the world.”Nordic influence is on the menu, too, in a starter of warm country sourdough with beer butter and smoked beef fat butter, modelled after a popular bread course at Noma.
After that, the menu divides into Snack, Smaller, Bigger, Sweeter.
Muscle size is not the most important in Women´s Physique and, as a proof, athletic Li Yi Ming (157 cm and 52,700 kg) took the overall crown in Women´s Physique discipline, at 2016 Olympia Amateur Asia, defeating muscled Gisela Nunes Chan from Hong Kong (167 cm and 69,900 kg) in the Super Final of the contest, for only 1 point difference (7 to 8 points, in the scores).
Li Yi Ming qualified for the Super Final getting the Gold Medal at the Short Class (-163 cm) where she defeated athletes from Korea, China, Thailand, Hong Kong and Philippines.
This was the only medal for this Asian Island with more than 23 million population.
Taiwan offers possibilities for farm-to-table dining that don’t exist in Singapore and Hong Kong.
At a nearby table, an elegantly dressed Taiwanese woman, obviously perplexed by a shallow bowl containing a single sheet of dried squid, laughed aloud as it separated into curly noodles when a server poured hot kombu broth over. Tairroir, which opened last May on the sixth floor of a building next to RAW, is, in appearance at least, its polar opposite: Intimate (just eight tables) and elegant (white-on-white dining room, sleek copper bar). And I do my own thing.” The result is a set menu (six or eight courses) that crosses Taiwanese ingredients with French technique.
I would return in a heartbeat for baby potatoes, which are thickly dusted with dried shiitake crumbles.
