Kaohsiung 高雄, 紅毛港


















The first sight of Kaohsiung from the air, a small port with oil refinery and low rise buildings around.  Sunshine but hazy.  My taxi driver is an extrovert, a sweet impression of the city.

I came here to deliver a training and train a trainer.  It's lucky to have a habour view room. A nice shot of the evening before heading to dinner at a local high end seafood restaurant. 

You don't need to have an address to find this seafood restaurant, 紅毛港.  It is better to go with a crowd to try different food.  Its mutton hotpot with homemade meatball blended with taro or Taiwanese basil is excellent!  Sashimi is also outstanding.  Sweetness of raw shrimps still lingers my memory.

This time is a small group of colleagues.  We ordered two sets of the same menu.  It's good but the last memory is still dominant, making this time a bit inferior.  Nevertheless, a good time with Adeline and Carol.


Marinated cabbage is said to be the most popular cold appertizer.  It was out of stock last time.  Well, it's plain.  Perhaps, I am benchmarking with the Korean version, Kimchi. The marinated cucumber is more welcome.
   

Sashimi is fresh and nice. The tuna is not the fatty type.

Sumptuous deep fried seafood rolls.  Yeah!
Vegetable and chicken rolls

Abalone soup - best of the night.  Nice soup!
Crab with rich roe
Deep fried eel

The night ended with work emails and a snapshot of the port in the night. A nice ending.  The next day, another training session and lunch.  Then flying back with an exhausted body and mind.  Goodbye Kaohsiung.
