As Julia Child said, “People who love to eat are always the best people.” We believe our friends whom we met through our love for food are really the best, as they have easily become our family. Sharing this with you because in one of our most recent EATSperiences with our KTG family, we paid a visit to Hole in the Wall in Century City Mall to try out Famry. Famry is a Taiwanese Street Food stall that features different Chinese/Taiwanese favorites made to be Filipino-friendly. Join us as we share with you our favorites and our EATSperience at Famry.
Famry at Hole in the Wall – Century City Mall
Famry took over Green Cheese (Hole in the Wall’s cheesecake stall) and is situated in between Liberation Shawarma and Milk Trade. For us, it’s a great addition to the already stacked line up of food stalls at Hole in the Wall. Let’s now move on to the best part of every EATSperience, the FOOD…
Let’s EAT Famry’s favorites!
Taiwanese food will not be complete without dumplings. And Famry’s spicy dumplings was handmade and filled with minced pork. It may look really spicy but the sauce was a combination of sweet and tangy flavors, topped off with lots of chili. However, we had to set aside some of the chili, so we do not end up getting our tongues numb.
As we made our way to Famry, their bun logo had us wanting to eat some bunplings. Also known as Sheng Jian Bao, these bunplings is a cross between a Xiao Long Bao and a regular Bao. Famry has a perfectly pan-fried dumplings with pork and soup filling. This was an instant favorite of Mrs.Eats, because of the tasty soup and filling. Tip: Make sure that when you eat this, take a small bite off the top first before slurping the soup.
Jianbing, a famous street food in Taiwan done Famry-style is a crispy egg pancake stuffed with soy and five-spice pulled roast pork. Every bite that we had, had that perfect crunch and the juicy filling made it even better. If Mrs.Eats loved the Bunplings, Mr.Eats loved Famry’s version of Jianbing.
A hefty rice bowl packed with flavors and textures. Famry’s Minced Pork Rice is topped with slow-braised pork, pickled vegetables and hard-boiled egg. It was so fragrant that we were not able to control ourselves and we dug in right away.
An instant favorite of both Mr. and Mrs.Eats. Famry’s Crispy Duck Rice is topped with a crunchy pan-fried duck, pickled vegetables, hard-boiled egg, chili slices and crispy duck skin. That crispy duck skin was the cherry on top of this rice bowl! The spicy flavor of the crispy duck was complemented by the sour pickled vegetables. This made us eat heaps of rice.
We have always loved our usuals which are Bad Bird and The Beef but we always felt like a Chinese inspired stall is what Hole in the Wall needs to fill in the gap. Thank God, they now have Famry, a no nonsense Taiwanese food stall ready to satisfy our cravings anytime of the day. Meals are definitely better when spent with our own little “famry”. Don’t forget to share your own Famry EATSperience or any other EATSperience with us! That’s it for this edition of EATSplorations. ‘Till next time!
