朱記 @Far Eastern Hotel Food Court

The original 朱記 (ju ji) is located at Ren-Ai Road Section 3. I remember eating there with my family when I was little, and I absolutely loved it. This time I visited the branch store at the Far Eastern Hotel food court. I noticed that the restaurant itself was more modernized and the service/cleanliness quality noticeably better than the original. Though famous for its 餡餅 meat pie and 小米粥 millet congee, I decided to try out 雞盅麵 chicken noodle soup,牛肉炒飯 beef fried rice, and 鮮肉蝦仁炒手 spicy meat and shrimp dumplings.




CHICKEN NOODLE SOUP (140NT)
 To be more precise, this should be called "chicken ramen soup". Since the chicken soup and ramen were separated, you could either eat the ramen without soup, stirred with sauce and green onions, or pour the soup all over the ramen. The chicken soup tasted quite authentic. The only thing I would have asked for was more meat on the chicken, since the chicken was made out of almost 70% bones and 30% meat.



BEEF FRIED RICE (140NT)
I liked how the fried rice tasted like something from ten years ago. It was the plain flavor that reminded me of the kind of fried rice I loved when I was a child. Fried rice at 朱記 also comes in other flavors: shrimp and pork chop. I would recommend this to all fried-rice lovers!



SPICY PORK AND SHRIMP DUMPLINGS (120NT)
Thanks to my friend who did not like spicy food, I finished this all the dumplings by myself, and was totally spiced out. I'd say it was quite spicy since I was unable to talk for half of the time. I loved the combination of pork, shrimp, dumpling skin, and the red oil spicy sauce. This is one of the dishes that I would definitely order again when I revisit.

OVERALL
I really enjoyed the dishes I ordered, and I would love to order other popular dishes, such as meat pie, steamed dumplings, and beef roll, when I visit next time. If you have a chance to go to the food court at Far Eastern Hotel, definitely give 朱記 a try!
