Fat Fook Kitchen at The Globe Tower in BGC

Taiwan is the next travel destination I am planning for my family next year so my Kumareng Berlin's invite for the opening of Fat Fook Kitchen, located at The Globe Tower in BGC, was timely!

What got my attention upon I entering the tall glass door of Fat Food was that tall, slim and beautiful lady standing at the back. She was then called to welcome the media. She's Chef Rachel Kao, Managing Partner and the executive chef. I actually thought they invited a celebrity to endorse this Taiwanese Restaurant.

Chef Rachel conceptualized everything on the menu. As a Taiwanese born in Taiwan and grew up in the Philippines, I believe she's in the right position to open a Taiwanese Restaurant.

Second that caught my chinky-small eyes are the plates that beautifully decorated the place. I am impressed with it because it reminds me of my late mom who used to collect plates.

I am clueless when it comes to Taiwanese food so it was a big help that Chef Rachel was there to explained the food they served last night.

I like tofu a lot. What's my personal favorite among the 17 dishes serves? It's definitely stinky tofu! It lives up to its name, it is really stinky but once you eat it, it's heaven (for me!).

"To remain authentic, we kept our recipes as is. We didn't adjust them to suit the Filipino palate", Chef Rachel explained.

Enough said, I suggest you head on at Fat Fook  at The Globe Tower in BGC and try their dishes.
