Taichung Night Market

14 Jan

I tried something like a big maki that was supposely Korean. It was filled with red bean rice, kimchi and other veggies. The difference with a maki is that it’s hot d of course there isn’t fish. Quite nice, but really huge.

Luihe night market – Kaohsiung

14 Jan

We tried dumplings in the supposed most famous night market in Kaohsiung, Luihe. The night market in itself is quite small and except fish it’s quite difficult to find other things.
The dumplings were quite nice but with too much green onion for me. If you want to seat you must order 20 dumplings for 80TWD.

The other thing was a shaobing filed with meat and again green onion. It was a little spicy, and i thought that this time too, the green onion flavor was too strong and hid the taste of the meat.

Oyster Omelette

13 Nov

Yeah, i ate Oysters. I had to try one of the most typical Taiwanese night market food, so i did it. But that was the one and only time. I just hate it, because of oysters, so i can’t really say anything about it. Just put sauce on it, because it doesn’t have any taste without it. I think that’s the main point of the omelette. It doesn’t have any interest without sauce.

Shaved Ice…finally…

1 Oct

It’s been a while since i wanted to go to Shilin night market. Not for shopping, but for food of course. It’s supposed to be the best night market on this subject. I’ve heard about Oyster omelettes, Stinky Tofu and Shaved Ice. Unfortunately for me, i couldn’t taste the 2 first ones, but i bothered so much the people wandering with me about the Shaved Ice, that we went there. And i did right, because everyone liked it in the end.

So, what’s special about this ice cream? It’s made of milk, and it is exactly like coconut. They grate it so it really look like snow. They add fruits with it or chocolate, peanut, red beans… depending on what you want. However, you can also have simple shaved ice with different taste than milk and no fruits. It’s quite big so you can share: we had 2 ice creams for 5 and it was ok.

The restaurant we went is one of the most famous of the market, you have to wait to get your seat, and once you’ve finished eating, they quickly quick you out to let other sit down. It’s near the teather. Unfortunately, i can’t read the name in Chinese.

I couldn’t find any dessert that i really liked here, well, i’ve finally found it. But that’s for summer, i need to find one for winter, now…

Danshui Iron Eggs 鐵蛋

25 Sep

Another thing i tried there was Iron eggs. That’s really small black eggs. In fact, that’s white eggs that were stewed and left some days in a pot. As for the color i don’t really know. It tastes like a stewed egg, however it’s a little more soggy and salty.

Danshui special dish: Ah-Gei 阿給

25 Sep

If you go to Danshui, of course you have to try this. You can find it everywhere in the night market, and that’s really delicious. Don’t focus on the weird appareance. Ah-Gei is Tofu filled with crystal noodles (the vermicelli noodles) and the whole is put in a spicy sauce. On night markets, you find them without the spicy sauce so at first i didn’t recognize the dish.

It’s quite hard to eat, because you first need to pierce/open the tofu (and with chopsticks that’s not the easiest thing on Earth) and then to mix the sauce with tofu and noodles to eat. But that’s really worth it.
