Their heated-up Neopolitan spaghetti is pretty good. N$65.
Was quite surprised after the first time I had it. And a decent good carbo-load if one is doing a round-island bike ride.

I eat quite alot there (7-11) , walking distance and im lazy LOL.


for rice lovers:

the curry is GOOD stuff , I personally go with the green one, more spicy more kick. The yellow 65Nt one is perfect for non spicy lovers, its not just veges, theres chicken inside too! tad on the sweet side imho.

rice balls and beverage , 39NT combo , depends on the drinks, sometimes they go nuts and combo it with milk so its a no brainer :whistle: Wasabi salmon rice ball is nice imho.

stay the F away from the beef/chicken japanese rice bowls, the beef bowl taste like crap and the chicken bowl is MSG ladened .... i learned it the hard way


For noodle lovers:

the zhonghua cold noodles with a salad is above average for me (39NT, 2 varieties, I like the blue one better) , u get 10NT off now if u pick it up with a 35NT salad

beef soup noodles , pretty average imho...

beef fried noodles, ok once in a while, small serving, tasty but damn salty too


microwave food packs @3 for 75NT

try having the green spag with the pork fried rice and fried dumplings , eat the sphags first, use the leftover sauce to coat the dumplings or rice, pretty decent imho.

Next time, try the rice with added spell-check and shift button. :2cents:

I like some of the triangle sandwiches, specifically the one with three thin sandwiches in it; one with an egg and the other two with a slice of ham. Moist and delicious!

I also like to triangle rice sandwiches. I'd stay away from the rou son (shaved pork) ones though. Too sweet and has a gritty texture I don't particularly enjoy. The tuna is probably the best.

I'd stay away from the liang mian (cold sesame noodles) though. I love these from small neighborhood shops, but once I bought one from 7 and got real sick.

If you are cheapskate beer drinker like me, apparently you can buy a case of Taiwan beer in advance, and just take a few beers at the store whenever you'd like. I haven't done this yet, but there is another local guy who I occasionally have a beer with outside 7 who told me about it.

Worst 7-Eleven food:

New Orleans style Chicken wings. :thumbsdown:

maybe I'm wrong on this but is "Good 7-11 food" a misnomer?

I believe the word you are looking for is 'oxymoron'.

I have been here for less than a week. I like the familiarity of the 7-Eleven already, but I'm also already a little perplexed by them. I actually rather like the spicy beef noodles, but they seem to be often out of stock. But they always have plenty of weird gravy-drenched looking things in stock, which look execrable to me and also which I cannot imagine being part of an Asian diet. Are these meant for foreign customers, or are they ersatz versions of western food adapted to local tastes?

Why don't they stock more of the spicy beef noodles, which must sell well, and fewer of the weird gravy things, which appear untouched between my visits?

Also, I walked into the local Family Mart today, expecting totally different stock, but the items were exactly the same, down to the AB yogourt which I have been drinking regularly in a desperate attempt to stave off the dreaded laduzi as long as possible. How can competing stores carry exactly the same products, down to the pre-made meals?

It's probably hui4fan4, quite common, cheap (and usually not particularly good) local grub. The gravy is generally a very low quality glop -- I imagine they make it with cornstarch, water, and little else.
Now selling homestyle baked goods (cookies, brownies, baklava, pies, & cakes) made with many organic, fair-trade and/or local pesticide-free ingredients, as well as many of those ingredients themselves, at our shop in Donghu (Neihu).
