Taiwan - 'Heaven of Food' (Part 1)

Visit Taiwan in 7 days, 6 nights definitely is not enough - that's the comment from Aunty Carol(my youngest sis)...and, it is true. For this trip, we only visit Hualien and Taipei, but, of course, my sis and my mom mission is: they will try to revisit Taiwan again, but, maybe, another location like Taichung and Kaoshiung. We choose 'free & easy' trip, meaning, everything we arrange by ourselves without needing any tour guide package at all. And, the outcome: Fanstastic!!!

One thing for sure is, Taiwan, is definitely can be called 'Heaven of Food', due to varieties type of food available. Testing food is definitely my hubby job and he LOVES it so much...since he has nothing to buy or spend, so, he might as well spend it on food....

Immediately, we arrived in Taipei, this is where we head to at 10pm(since we just stay nearby: "Xi Meng Ting").....lots of shopping and food...

Famous Mee Sua called 'Ah Chung Mee Sua'.....looks so 'terrible' but, really taste so nice ler.....even my fussy eater, Jona is having few spoons out of it. And, the dislike part is, they don't provide any chairs or tables for you to eat. You have to either stand and eat or just sit somewhere else to eat...and funny part, it is so famous till people willing to queue for it.

The following night, in Hualien, this is what we had. "Coffin Bread", "Toasted food", "Duck Tougue",etc......The coffin bread is the famous in Hualien, so nice and yummy, and only cost us around RM 4. You should try it if you happen to be in Hualien.


See Jona so hungry ler....ha,ha..of course lor, after seeing Dolphin, and miss his milk meal. Finally, he willing to taste food beside than his milk.

JiaoFen is also another location that has plenty of food (really can't find it in M'sia) and the food really taste yummy too. I, esp love this 'jelly' which claim made from healthy ingredients and hand made as well, which all of us just love to eat and munch on it. Too bad, we can't 'tapau' it back to M'sia, otherwise I bet Iz will love it too....









Imagine, everyday, eating food from the stalls, and till the last day, still can't taste all the foods!! Ha,ha.....Anyway, the funny part about Taiwanese is, as long as the food taste nice, they all just willing to queue for it, even though the queue is sooooo long....*aiyah*









Of course, beside stall foods, we do eat in nice restaurant too - Keelung Seafood Restaurant, even though it is located in Taipei City. The food is really fresh and juicy...Taiwanese love to copy Japanese style.

Of course, hubby mission is to try all the 'funny' & 'weird' food in Taiwan include his 'Smelly Taufu'.....which only Aunty Carol willing to accompany him to eat....Eeeeukkkk!!! So awful and smelly - no more kissing from Dadi for a week!!....he,he....

Anyone dare to try it??

Hubby has always wished I would agree to his transfer to Germany or Taiwan but I'm so reluctant. Hmm... it's worth visiting Taiwan come to think of it after reading your blog! (nope, still not willing to transfer there!) :P
