By far the best food that we ate in Taiwan was while we were standing in a bustling night market, or walking down the street. However on the rare occasion that we decided to be seated for a meal, we weren't exactly disappointed with what we ordered. Here's a look at the rest of the things we gorged ourselves with:
|Neo Ro Mein - beef noodle soup.
The broth was a tad bland but
the meat was tender and tasty.
|Top: A truly decadent peanut butter cocktail.
Bottom: Fragrant gin & rosemary combination.
|Stinky tofu soup (centre) - extra spicy.
No where near as edible as the fried street version.
|Standard Chinese restaurant, where we
ate various mediocre veggie and rice
dishes. Sadly nothing at all special.
|Sushi. Not exactly Taiwanese but it was actually our first
experience of a conveyor-belt restaurant and it was cheap.
|Second oyster omelette: "This one was better"
|We ate in an aborigine restaurant in Taroko gorge
and drank rice wine out of cute wild boar cups.
The food we had is in the next two pictures...
|Top: Bitter melon soup (naff), sticky rice in a bamboo
stick (standard), fried boar skin (unusual)
Middle: Pickled chillies, greens, boiled sweet potato
Bottom: Talapia in sweet soy sauce (yum), mushrooms, salsa
|Weirdest dumpling thing ever.
Looked like a breast implant, tasted like pork and
honey, sprinkled with garlic and coriander.
|Taipei 101 food court food.
Dave got a bulgogi-esque dish. Rather tasty.
|I got another steak. Top middle is a bowl of "soup"
with a sheet of puff pastry baked on the top.
Interesting idea but horrible soup.
It tasted like watery custard.
