Exploring the Miracles of Neiwan

Dinner at cinema theatre

leave a comment »

This cinema theatre was built by the Japanese during the colonial times as entertainment for the soldiers and much of it is unchanged since then, making this an attractive tourist destination.

Very classic ambience to it, antiques and paintings on the walls bring you back into the 60s. This cinema theatre serves traditional hakka food of good quality and you can watch old films from the past when you dine.

The cinema theatre makes some of their own unique souvenirs for sale. Here we have poker cards of Neiwan scenery and a famous artiste from the 60s.

I love this sign. looks pretty in the dark don’t it?

These are film equipment used in the past. The smaller one makes film of a lower resolution.

This is the record player from the past.

Ladies normally wear cheongsam in the past. Is that a cap on her head?

Comic books and magazines from the past

Japanese style dining rooms retained from the colonial periods

Straw raincoat which farmers wear in the past

Pork is made in different ways here.

I Love the pork with pickles which is known as “mui choi kou yok” Chinese in Cantonese & “Mei Cai Kou Rou” in and can be found in most spore food courts). Its tender and the fatty bits gives it an added moisture and kick.

This is the roasted and sliced version. Also equally good 😉

Pig oil (lard) mixed with rice – people in the past only have this and vegetables for their meals daily. They have meat dishes only on special occasions or festive periods. This is Mr Lan showing us how to eat it. Mix in the pork lard gravy into the rice and the rice will taste good on its own. don’t eat this all the time though. It’s really fattening. I tried a spoonful and it tastes funny. Think I prefer plain rice.

Traditional Chinese must drink soup every dinner. This is herbal ginger chicken soup with red dates and it’s really nutritional.

Simple stir fry vegetables. Healthy and it’s not as oily as the ones I’ve tried in China.

I saw this dish in a number of hakka restaurants. It looks really appetizing with the yellow egg yolk in the middle.

Love the tangerine sauce with goes with the chicken. Tangerine sauce is unique to hakka culture and the environment in Taiwan is well suited to grow good and sweet tangerines.
