I think this is the latest I've ever been with a food post. Oops. Also, the photos aren't as good this time either. I guess I've just been an all-around slacker this month. But there are a lot more Taiwanese foods in this month's posts, so I hope you enjoy it!
A Taiwanese delicacy, 豬耳朵 (pig's ear). A yummy side dish.
皮蛋豆腐 (thousand-year-old egg and tofu).
Occasionally we buy lunchboxes too.
Costco pizza in Taiwan: the topping is Peking duck — sooo strange, but really delicious!
Fancy thin-crust pizza from dinner with Auntie Audrey.
This is sea snail. I declined to taste it, but Christine tried some.
水煎包, basically meat or veggie buns.
大腸麵線 (vermicelli with large intestine). Oyster is also a common ingredient, but I'm not a fan of oyster, clams, or mussel. My coworkers joke that I only like expensive seafood (crab, lobster, and the like).
On the right is 蛋餅 (egg pancake), a common Taiwanese breakfast. I have 肉鬆 in mine, but there are a lot other fillings you can ask for.
A guy making 愛玉 at 饒河夜市. Apparently 愛玉 is made by rubbing the dried seeds of a specific fruit until the gel comes out; Christine told me that she made it before, during one of her previous summers in Taiwan. I had no idea! It sounds super cool. And the guy who I photographed was really funny — he was all like "Don't just take a photo of my hands! Take a photo of me!" So I did. Haha. Unfortunately that photo didn't turn out well — I think I caught him blinking — but it was still cute how charming he was.
Omelet and quesadilla from brunch with Victoria a few weeks ago — more photos to come!
I bought these expensive handmade cookies from City Super on a whim because they looked interesting. Haha.
Chocolate cake from Black as Chocolate for a coworker's birthday! The devil forks are super cute too.
That's it for now. Oh and if you're gonna be in Taiwan this summer, let me know so we can hang out! :D
Have a great weekend!
