Here are some dishes I've eaten in the past three weeks
And my favorite coffee here, a latte you can buy in 7/11s and Family Marts around Taipei.
Beef noodles, very yummy, had them in Xinzhuang. This soup with beans and peanuts helped me when I was sick. Beef noodles and tofu. Was recommended, but it was a bit disappointing. Not so yum. Dumpligs bought in the same shop. Not so bad, but nothing special (in Xinzhuang). One of my favorite street foods: omelette with curry at Yumin st. night market in Banciao. Curry omelette seen from close. Thai food in a nice restaurant in Banciao. Veggies and chicken in coconut milk curry sauce. Very soft tofu, looked like fried mozzarella. Pumpkin soup and salad from Dante's café in Banciao. Not bad. Chicken in curry sauce with rice (by now you must've figured out that I love curry sauces). Spaghetti in Dante's café near Xinpu MRT. Tasty like at home in Slovenia. The above Japanese "Tempura" and the foods below are from a nice restaurant in Yingge. Rice of very good quality, like mostly in Taiwan. This one is "Kung pao chicken" or 宮保雞丁 in Chinese. This one is named "Hakka fried dish". Slices of cooked pork in soy sauce. Yummy! Veggies. Squid in three kinds of sauces, called 三杯小卷 in Chinese. Thai pancake named "Popiah hoor kung", very yummy. Japanese soy bean fish miso. This is named "Hibachi beef", fried beef on hot plate. Takoyaki at the Yumin st. night market [板橋裕民夜市]. Not bad, but I've had better. Grilled chicken at Yumin st. night market: Very yummy! And so cheap. The famous Taiwanese crepe sold on nearly every corner. This one at Yumin night market. Taiwanese crepe from inside: many veggies, tuna and a sauce. Tofu in a soy sauce with sesame seeds served as a snack with tea and coffee in Taichung. Cold noodles with chicken, eaten in Yingge. That was my first time to eat cold ones. Not bad. "Kimchi hotpot" near Xinpu MRT, very yummy and cheap. Chicken in a sauce with veggies and rice served in a hot plate. Looks better than it tastes. My lovely girlfriend invited me for a Japanese barbecue in Taoyuan. She treated me, too. This was the most expensive and abundant dish I've had since I'm in Taiwan. A lot of meat and veggies. So yummy. A hotpot goes well with grilled meat. Looks and tastes great :-) Thank you so much, sweetie! ;-) From a hawker at the NTNU night market. Supposed to be Malaysian food :-) It was ok lo. And to ease my thirst, I'm totally hooked on the famous Taiwanese bubble tea :-)
I posted some great food pics of my first week in Taiwan before. If you haven't seen those, you can see them here. Today's post is a continuation of that. And my goal is to make your taste buds go wild... or at least to make your mouths watery, hehe. Enjoy some more pics of the Taiwanese yummy food (or the food you can find in Taiwan, including foreign food).
"Arnor's crepe" near the NTNU night market. Very fulling.
Typical Taiwanese oyster omelette bought at Yumin st. night market, really yummy.
Vietnamese spring rolls with rice noodles at Yumin st. night market. Cheap and yummy.
So yeah, food is really great here.
