This cookie butter cake is just three ingredients. It’s easy to make and satisfies those cake cravings.

I was all set to make a different recipe this weekend and then I spied my new jar of cookie butter and ended up making this instead. I do adore easy recipes, especially on a lazy Sunday.

Food Shop is the new grab & go shop by Chef Michael “Bao” Huynh, known for being Iron Chef Vietnam. It is adjacent to its sit-down sister restaurant, Sovereign Kitchen + Bar.

Inside the small shop you’ll find a handful of tables and a menu of quick bites like bánh mì sandwiches, pho, bowls, and wok dishes.

Our original intention had been to dine-in, but the late afternoon sun was covering all the tables and the cozy restaurant was already quite warm, so we decided to take our food to-go instead, just like everyone else.

I was most looking forward to trying the banh mi, a specialty of Chef Michael Bao Huynh’s. While this may look like any other ordinary banh mi sandwich, it didn’t taste like any banh mi I’ve had before. In many ways, it actually didn’t even feel like I was eating a banh mi. 

Mocktail Tea in Taipei serves tea, food, and a signature Soft Serve Pearl Milk Tea dessert that has made it quite popular.

During my dessert crawl with A Hungry Girl’s Guide to Taipei, we went to check it out. I’d first seen the signature soft serve boba dessert on Instagram and had been really curious.
