Three long-time South African residents of Taiwan--Morne, Adrian and Gerte--recently started this business, specializing in providing high-quality, easy-to-prepare, home-cooked meals and other foods, ordered via website or phone and delivered to your door anywhere on the island. The international cuisine includes a variety of meat products such as sausages and salty beef jerky (known as "biltong" in South Africa), plus fresh-made English-style meat pies with flavors like Spinach Cheese, Ham and Cheese, Chicken and Cheese, and vegetarian Refried Mexican Beans. In addition, there are several sauces, from BBQ to Honey Mustard, and a savory selection of Casanova liqueur shots in flavors like Tiramisu and Irish Cream. The trio of owners, all very experienced in the kitchen, is also able to cater a variety of events, from birthday parties to weddings (one-month prior reservation needed) and welcomes other similar individuals and companies that want to sell foods via Eat Some More. --By Douglas Habecker
