From crispy Pork Intestines to flavourful Takoyaki, every bite is a culinary adventure worth savouring.

It’s not often that we revisit a dining establishment after a less-than-stellar experience, but when the allure of Taiwanese street food beckoned, we couldn’t resist giving My Kitchen another chance. Seven years had passed since our last visit to their Corinthian shop in Albany, and this time, our taste buds were in for a pleasant surprise.

Nestled amidst the vibrant hustle and bustle of the Chinese New Year festivities in Mission Bay, My Kitchen’s stall stood out, drawing crowds with promises of authentic Taiwanese flavours. As we joined the queue, anticipation mingled with nostalgia, reminiscent of our past encounters with street food delights in Hong Kong.

The menu boasted an array of Taiwanese street food favourites, from crispy Pork Intestines to flavourful Takoyaki. Our order consisted of Fried Pork Buns (3pcs for NZ$6.00), Fried Dumplings (6pcs for NZ$6.00), Taiwanese Chicken Nuggets (NZ$8.00), and the star of the show – Stinky Tofu (NZ$8.00). Each item was freshly prepared, exuding tantalizing aromas that hinted at the culinary delights to come.

As we savoured each bite, it became evident that My Kitchen had undergone a remarkable transformation. The Fried Pork Buns delighted with their juicy fillings and crispy crust, while the Fried Dumplings offered a symphony of flavours in every bite. The Taiwanese Chicken Nuggets were a revelation – crispy, juicy, and utterly addictive. This is not your normal Chicken Nuggets; this one is made with real chicken meat that is not made into paste or minced.

However, it was the Stinky Tofu that had piqued our curiosity and ultimately left us longing for more. Despite our anticipation, the tofu fell short of expectations, lacking the distinctive aroma that defines this Taiwanese delicacy. While impeccably fried and satisfying in its own right, it failed to capture the essence of true stinky tofu.

Despite this minor setback, our overall experience at My Kitchen was nothing short of delightful. The impeccable service and delectable street food offerings left us thoroughly satisfied, marking a stark contrast to our previous encounter. My Kitchen’s stall at the Auckland Night Markets proved to be a culinary journey worth embarking on, reaffirming our belief in the transformative power of good food and second chances.

My Kitchen’s stall offers a tantalizing glimpse into the vibrant world of Taiwanese street food. While some dishes may fall short of expectations, the overall experience is one of culinary delight and discovery. So, if you find yourself craving a taste of Taiwan, be sure to pay My Kitchen a visit (I guess in Auckland Night Markets) – you won’t be disappointed.

    Nothing beats a night market! The sights, the smells, and of course, the tastes! There are just so many options, it’s such a fun experience all around. I really miss that; we don’t have anything quite the same near me.

  2. Wow, this looks like a great experience! It’s good to hear that they upped their game. I think the crowd surrounding the market speaks for itself – when in doubt, follow the crowd! 🙂
