* WARNING : DO NOT READ WHEN YOU'RE HUNGRY *
I just came back from Taipei and am seriously missing the food there!
especially after looking through all the photos in this blog post haha
We stayed in Taipei for almost 2 weeks and....
we're proud to say.....
we ate a lot!
We didn't go to their tourist attractions (already been there on my first trip) , therefore we had more time to look around for good food.
Most of the times, we hopped onto a taxi and asked the taxi where he would recommend..
taxi drivers always know where the good food are.
Here's some of our favourites:
This lu-wei store at the entrance of Shida Night market
we love their flavors sooo much, we went back multiple times hahaha
It's something like our YONG TAU FOO.
you will have to choose what you want in your bowl and pass to the guy, they will cook it for you.
however, they've got more variety of ingredients for you too choose and also the sauce they use is sooo yummy!
sprinkled with spring onions and a lot of prickled vege~!
super super love!
They've got duck blood curd (not sure if that's the name for it)
I love duck blood curd for it's springy and jelly like texture hehehe
君悦排骨 Jun Yue Pai Gu
This store is pretty near where we stay so we decided to try it!
omg.. it tasted sooooo yummy!!
best best best pork ribs we've ever tasted!
the pork ribs are well seasoned, crispy on the outside and juicy inside~~
i wanna go back now
tender and yummy!
it came in a rice set like this!
a lot of vege!
there's prickled vege (yes, i love prickled vege), tofu, minced meat, cabbages and other greens...
lol.. it's so packed with flavors you don't really need to eat with the pork ribs..
the pork ribs is heavenly and just bring the meal to a whole new level
the first time we tried JUNYE was because it was late when we arrived at our place so keith went down to pack dinner.
even though by the time we had dinner, the rice and pork ribs were already cold...
it's still sooo yummy!
the flavors were still there and the pork ribs were so tender .. (even though the rice is hard to bite)
we went down again to eat it the next day.
yes, piping hot~
and it's sooooooooo yummy~~~
the famous HU XU ZHANG
Ah keith's fav.
he actually bought 9 packets of packet RU LUO sauce home. hahah
it's tad oily for me but it's still yummy!
the only sin here... is not eating it..
and yes, i gained a couple of kilograms from this trip hahaha
LIN DONG FANG beef noodles
it was raining that day when we tried Lin Dong Fang and this was recommended by one of the taxi drivers
one of his fav spot for beef noodles~
tiny tiny shop in the alley~
lol i think normally gems are hidden in small alley lo
the taxi driver said that they boiled down the beef essence/bone etc for the whole day...
so the soup is packed with intense flavor!
beef and tendon noodle bowl
honestly, i don't like their noodles~~~
it's tooo springy in my opinion.
i like noodles that are cooked until very very soft hahaha
but their beef and tendons were really soft and flavorful!
their clear broth that has a slight herbal taste but it's soooooo delicious!
their signature chicken and waffles~
i love love love their chicken~~
crispy yet juicy~
their waffles are soft and they are pretty generous with their maple syrup hahaha
hmm... i don't remember what...
but not as nice as the chicken hehehe~
order their chicken when you're there~
Ya Rou Bian
another restaurant recommended by the taxi drivers hehe
even though it's YA ROU bian, they don't sell duck but instead they sell goose
photo speaks a thousand words
yet again, i don't like their springy noodles~~~
but their goose meat is nice~ <3 p="">
and some interesting food we tried...
grilled mochi at Ximending
chocolate and condensed milk...
prince skinless fried potato~
a more traditional breakfast i guess?
TIAN BU LA
i miss taipei's food~
i wanna go back again~
but first i will need to exercise a lose some pockets of fats before filling them up in taipei again
