food trekker part 2

by - May 12, 2010

Whenever I go to Taiwan the thing I look forward to the most aside from seeing my family and shopping is food. I never get tired of the usual things I eat here and the food that I love in particular here is street food.

First one is called TEMPULA in Chinese, which is the meal at the right side and the veggies are simply string beans and green bell pepper. You'll usually find them at night at street corners or trucks. They fry it for a few minutes, add their special powder sauce plus basil and tadah! It's ready for consumption and I promise you it's really good! I've already had it twice and still can't wait to have more. :)

My second favorite is the TANPING. It's like Taipei's pizza. Its main ingredient is the egg and basil. You can usual see this being made in stalls and is more popular during breakfast, especially if you're in a rush and wants on the go food. But Mom and I are different. We go for this during dinner and have 2 pieces each. It's quite heavy on the the tummy so two is more than enough to satisfy your hunger.

Lastly this one isn't really a street food but it's one restaurant here at Taipei that I never fail to go to whenever I come here and it's called BIG MY. They have a strange name. Most businesses here often do but the food here is always worth coming back to. It's a typical teppanyaki restaurant that serves veggies with whatever main course you want. Whether it be fish. shrimp or beef. I give it 5 stars for its never ending delicious meals. I've been going to this resto since I was about 10 or 12 years old so I guess that pretty much sums up my love for it. ;)

I guess that's the best thing about traveling. You discover different cultures and new flavors to digest. I really hope aside from Taiwan I can visit Thailand once again with my whole family. :)
