Ever wondered what is exploring a foreign country without trying local delicacies? You cannot imagine that right. To me, traveling is all about exploring. Exploring new places, new cultures and most importantly, exploring new food.
My love for food has no boundaries, therefore all I did throughout the trip was eat! Everyday I tried something different, putting my tastebuds to work from breakfast to dessert! From dumplings to noodles, stinky tofu to fried milk.
Truth to be told, Taiwan are very creative with their food. They have the wackiest and funkiest food you will try. I have to say, it was quite a pleasure getting to try them. So without further ado, let’s talk about the food of Taiwan.
All right! Let us start with the dumplings, because that was what I ate the most! When I visited Taiwan, I told myself to stuff myself with dumplings (well as they are like little gold nuggets with their juices). And so I did, in the end, I think I turned into a dumpling myself.
The dumplings in the bamboo steamer on the left are soup dumplings. They are the type of dumplings that requires a spoon when you eat them as soup from inside the dumplings would leak out if you not-so-gently bite into them. The soup comes from the juices of the fillings which are usually minced pork. The other 2 plates are potstickers and dumplings which are cooked by boiling them in water.
The 3 pictures of dumplings above were bought in little stores along the street of Taipei, so I am afraid I could not provide the exact address of the store. However fret not, as you could devour all types of dumplings throughout Taiwan as most of the street stores sell them.
I ate the wanton dish in Din Tai Fung, in Taipei 101 building. I would provide the details at the end of this post.
Next are noodles! I did not eat a lot of rice on this trip, so therefore I ate loads of noodles instead!
All the noodles I tried were from street vendors, therefore unfortunately I am unable to provide addresses. However there are many variety of noodles in Taiwan, thus fret not as you would come across such dish in travels.
That is all for today. Do not be shocked with these little amount of food as these are not all that I have tried during my visit to Taiwan. Do look out for Part 2 and 3 of The Food in Taiwan. I hope that you have enjoyed this post, Thank you for reading and till next time, See you!
Spread love & Be Kind. Xoxo Pei Gee!
