It had been raining the whole day and the surrounding temperature was somewhat cold.

The thoughts of having nice, warm food came into our find when Tam Ciak suggested that we tried some spicy, hot Taiwanese food since we didn’t want to have dinner under rainy weather at Wai Sek Kai as initially planned.

Restoran Toipark Village is a Taiwanese restaurant at Chai Leng Park located at the parallel street next to Wai Sek Kai. It is directly opposite the morning market and same row as Leng Gaik Hokkien Mee.

Tam Ciak has been a regular patron to this restaurant and now he is recommending it to us. Well, not quite recommending but challenging us to the specialty of this restaurant.

What kind of specialty, you may ask. It is actually spicy hot pot and its variant sour and spicy hot pot.

The hot pot looks something like steamboat but the soup is chili based and red in color. The pot is heated up using solid fuel to keep the soup warm throughout the servings.

Be careful, the sight of red colored chili soup may intimidate you…hehehe.

However, if you enjoy spicy food, you will like it and perhaps looking forward to enjoy it as well. You may end up sipping the soup till it is empty. Still, if you dare and have extra high tolerance for spiciness, you can ask for more chili from the lady boss…Even the one from Kocha is not as spicy as this one.

The other dish that you should order is stinky beancurd (chau tau fuh), yes, the famous stinky tofu that quite enjoyed by Hongkies. The Taiwanese version is not as stinky as the Hong Kong version but they are equally good. This is another of Tam Ciak’s favorite every time when he dines here.

We ordered few other dishes like seaweed, kim chi, dumpling and crispy chicken strips and found them just as tasty. This meal was quite fulfilling but we did find our stomachs working extra hard and feeling kind of hot, possibly from the spicy hot pot we took. But it’s worth the meal to have on rainy days.

    lingzie...

    this one is not oily but it it hot. Still you can request the boss not to put so much chili inside.

    Alternatively, you can opt for sour and spicy hot pot. it's equally good with the extra sour taste :)

    give it a try whenever you're in that area. After that you can go next street for some dessert too :)

    hi janice.....

    if it's for the food, it isn't that far after all, seberang is just a bridge away or if you like, a ferry trip away :)

    i'm sure your bf will take you there if you convince him good enough of the food both of you will enjoy :p ... probably you can tell him to let you try this just once (say it with innocent pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee), who knows he may give in .... hehehhehehe

    all the best in convincing him :):)
