Brizo Restaurant & Bar

Ok.. This is a very backdated post. Took me awhile to finish the entire post. Seldom get the chance to sit in front of the computer for more than 2 hours.

The hubby planned and had us head to Brizo Restaurant & Bar two weeks after my confinement. I have no idea what Brizo offers. All I know that we were going to have buffet. And did not do any homework prior to the dinner, except for the location so that I can help navigate with the GPS. Haha...

Here is what is online (checked them out only when blogging this post)

We got there a little before 6.30pm and there were not almost nobody. After we settled down, a waitress came over and told us that we can start. So I started with photo taking. Just when I was done with photos, customers started streaming in, and before we know it, the place (indoors) was almost full. They have outdoor seatings too, though very few chose to sit outdoors.

We started with the cold food first. Yum yum at the sashimi, crabs and prawns. Little Josie started to want attention then, so it was quite a rush rush meal from then on.


Had a few mouthfuls of this Seafood Paella that hubby took for me. Quite nice and it's a little spicy.


They have four crabs for us that night. Looks pretty majestic right? All the crab dishes is laid out there for the customers to take.


Steamed XO Crabs are in the steaming basket, which, we kinda missed out. Blur us. But we did see many of the customers eating it.

Brizo’s Signature Heavenly Fragrance Crabs ... Sorry.. we did not try too. I was too busy with Little Josie and hubby was already disappointed with the freshness of the crabs to try this.


Butter Crabs is just crabs in butter. If only they serve salted egg crabs.... Ahh... My second favourite kind of crabs.


Chilli Crabs, alittle disappointing for me. I love chilli crabs among all the different kinds of crabs available in Singapore. The gravy is spicy, but not tasty enough. I love have fried buns dip in the grav, but that day I actually prefer to eat the bun without the gravy.


XO Fried Rice, is fried rice with huge prawns fried in XO sauce. I love fried rice. This is not too bad, but I did not went for a second.


The side dishes consists of two selection of pizzas, Whole Baked Sambal Snapper, Sugarcane Prawns and so on.



I think I had more desserts than mains. I love this Chocolate cake. Really. LOVE. Ever since I was pregnant, I love Chocolate stuff even more. Even hubby also agreed that this chocolate cake is GOOD. The marble cake was average, and the strawberry cake is quite nice too.


And this durian SHOT. YUMS. Very durian-ish. Haha.. I know it's a weird description, but it's a right adjective. Every mouthful is full of the rich durian taste. Great for durian lovers. (I'm recently converted Hahaha)


The service was ok. No real good or bad stuff to comment. If we really gotta nit grit, it would be refilling of our warm water and they forgot to give us the complimentary carpark coupon.

As to whether we will return, we would not. The highlights are seafood, and mostly are the crabs. And yet the crabs can be improved so much. It's not just our thoughts. Hubby heard from neighboring tables, whom are veteran crab eaters, commented on the freshness and the taste of the crabs available.

Kaohsiung : Fo Guang Shan 佛光山

PS: This will be a long post with many photos.

After a much complicated directions online on how to get to the Fo Guang Shan 佛光山, we decided to take the KRT to Zuoying Station and then take the bus, 哈佛快線. Exit the Zuoying KRT Station and wait at Bus Platform 2 for the 哈佛快線 to come. There is a time schedule for the bus to arrive. Each bus trip cost NTD70 per person. You can use the iPass to tap in and out for the journey.

Alternatively, based on online reviews, you can take bus 8010/8011 at 高雄客运. It is just opposite our hotel and behind 国光客运. However, it is not recommended by the staff there as it is a much longer time and distance, that's why she recommended us to take the 哈佛快線 at Zuoying.

Here's the bus. We waited quite some time as we were early.


Here's the bus schedule.


We have reached Fo Guang Shan 佛光山. A little overwhelmed by the map. It's a huge place. And since it's on a hill, there are alot of slopes and stairs. Just thinking about it make my knees go weak.…

Kaohsiung : Food and more food

Besides eating at Night Markets, we also went to some recommended places online and on TV. These places are not that near from the KRT and need some working out on feet.



BO 雪球餅乾咖啡館 BO Schneebälle Cafe 新光三越高雄左營店3F | Shin Kong Mitsukoshi (Zuoying) level 3

We had accidentally went past this cafe in Zuoying Shin Kong Mitsukoshi 星光三越. The hubby saw a TV show recommending this special biscuit ball where you need to hammer it to eat in smaller pieces. We tried it as it was quite fun. We had the chocolate flavoured one.



The huge wooden hammer in shop to break the biscuit ball into pieces.


I think we hammered too much... Haha the ball became overly small pieces. It's delicious.


You can buy as gifts. If I remember correctly, three balls into one container.


I am pretty regretful that I did not buy more to bring home. I like the taste of it a lot. And I am missing it so much. Ahh.. Delicious.

Kaohsiung : Cijin Island 旗津島

PS: This will be a long post with many photos.

After visiting The Pier-2 Art Center 駁二藝術特區 and the Takao Railway Museum 打狗鐵道故事館 in the morning, our following itinerary was to head to the Cijin Island 旗津島. By the way, if we were able to travel around on bicycles, it would be much easier. So, do rent a bicycle to travel around if you are able to cycle. Especially for The Pier-2 Art Center 駁二藝術特區 and on Cijin Island 旗津島.

About 10-15 minutes walk from the Orange line KRT station, Sizihwan Station 西子灣站 (O1), you will be able to reach the ferry terminal. Follow the signs (鼓山渡轮站) on the lamp posts to get to the ferry terminal.


 The ferry also ferries passengers travelling with bicycles and motorcycles. For us, without any cycles, it costs NTD15 per person per trip. You can pay in cash or iPass.


The ferry ride is only about 5 to 10 minutes. Cijin Island 旗津島 is just opposite, separated by the waters. The ferry terminal looks nicer on the island.


There's a temple on the island. Cihhou Godde…
