Restaurant Sanshia

24 Oct

The Taiwanese students brought us to a typical restaurant. I was able to recognize to dishes that i had already tried, but the discovery of the day was the fried tofu (the biggest picture). That’s really good! Otherwise, as usual: a tofu soup, cabbage, tofu and oysters (didn’t try this one, you know why), chicken, omelette with shrimps, pig blood, bamboo, mushrooms, beef and onions, and beef and cabbage. Nice, but the beef and onion wasn’t that great because of the meat.

Yakuniku – Hualien

18 Oct

From the left to the right:

Spicy omelette with cabbage, peanuts and small fried fishes, clams, oysters, pineapple beef, bamboo, fried mushrooms, spicy mango tofu, pork, and fried fish.

My favorite goes for the pineapple beef, because of the sauce. The bamboo were quite good too, but the mushrooms were quite tasteless, so they didn’t bring anything here. The spicy mango tofu was a way too spicy for me (and in fact, only 2 out of the 11 people were able to eat it). Clams were ok, but again, you have a lot on the table and nearly nothing to eat since they’re often empty. Peanuts and small fishes were also quite great.

Quite expensive, but if you share with everyone, you have for about 250 TND per person. However, it’s worth it.

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.

Taiwanese dessert: Douhua 豆花

25 Sep

Some Taiwanese friends shew us the way to try a typical dessert. I was quite scared actually with my past experiences with Taiwanese desserts, but this one was ok. This is called Douhua, it’s a soup with some kind of paste which is actually the same thing as tofu but less solid (that’s what i understood). The flavors are mainly with beans (red beans, green beans, tapioca, peanuts…). You can ask for/without ice.

It’s jelly-like and it’s a soup again, but the flavors were a little better, and even if it’s still quite sweet, it’s better than the desserts i’ve tried so far. I might eat it again once or twice in the year.
