{Taiwan: Taipei} Snacking

Gua Bao

Muah CheeFreakin’ delicious ‘小麦 Muah Chee‘ found at the end of Linjiang Street (Tong Hua) Night Market 臨江街夜市.

Green Milk Tea with PearlsHigh class bubble tea from Chun Shui Tang 春水堂 which is supposed to be very good but we found it a total rip-off.

Frogs Hit Milk TeaThis favourite Chen San Ding 陳三鼎 stall among locals (always seen with long queues) won hands-down. Tried their signature tea which has a weird name called 青蛙撞奶.

Bigtom Strawberry PartyWaffles, strawberries, cream, maple syrup, and Bigtom ice cream. Perfect for summer.

Cold NoodleOverpriced beverages from Coffee Alley while waiting for our turn in Dazzling Café Pink.

Chilli Wantons + Ma Jiang MianRandom gem from Jinshan Old Street 金山老街.

Taro and Sweet Potato BallsThe authentic taro balls from Ah Gan Yi Yu Yuan 阿柑姨芋圆 at Jiufen 九份.

Then we had street seafood at Miao Kou Night Market 庙口夜市 located at Keelung 基隆 – the biggest port in Taiwan.

ShrimpsCrispy shrimps done in the Taiwanese salt pepper 鹽酥 style. You can eat them whole by the way.

BBQ Oysters

Sea UrchinFresh from the spikes.

Milk Snow Ice with Egg Rolls

Ah Gei Fishballs + TofuSignature dish of Tamsui 淡水 – tofu with glass noodles fillings inside. The presentation looks pretty gross actually but the taste was good.

Pepper BunThe most popular stall at the entrance of Raohe Street Night Market 饒河街觀光夜市. Tried this pepper bun twice but I still find it so-so.

Cheese PotatoMust-eat at Shilin Night Market 士林夜市. Potato loaded with egg, chives, tartar, ham, meat, corn and a pool of cheese. This is sinning at its highest and most satisfying level.

Cold Noodle凉面.

Last but not least, food from our favourite night market of all, Ningxia Night Market 寧夏夜市.

Red Bean Soup + Muah Chee

Fried Taro BallsIt’s easy to spot the stall from the constant queue.

Fried Taro Balls with Salted Egg YolkBEST.

Oyster OmeletteThe popular oyster omelette was closed, so we had the one from Lai 賴. Good enough.
