When In Taiwan...Eat!

So right now I am somewhere in Montreal, most likely spazzing with Queenie & Agasshi  ^o^
But I didn't want you guys to be lonely HAHA! So this is a vacation post!

I went to Taiwan last year to see my family. All I usually do there is eat...a lot. And buy a bunch of stuff because when you're traveling, foreign money just doesn't seem like money hahaha

This will be a food porn post! I am sorry if you are hungry while reading this. And if your internet lags from all the pictures XP

Fruits
I love fruit. Fruit by itself, fruit in dessert, fruit in salads, fruit in actual food. If there's fruit in something I'll probably order it XD
Taiwan has so  many cool fruits!!


I was obsessed with passion fruit when I was there. I ate like a whole plate everyday.


Guava. I don't really like the pink ones. Too mushy!


YELLOW WATERMELON!!!! Tasted normal though -_-


Not sure what it's called but it tastes amazingly sweet.


Food Court Eats
Seriously...how can food court food taste this good??? American food courts = sadness on so many levels.
Yes...I ate steak at a food court.
This was at the food court at the Taipei 101 building, that place has the best food court! So many choices. Since I can't afford anything from the fancy shmancy designer stores at Taipei 101, I just go there to eat LOL



Omurice!!!
It's an omelette wrapped around a pile of tomato fried rice. I saw a little boy eating it so deliciously so I bought one too ^o^


Random Eats
This guy just sits here all day & makes noodles. All. Day. Long.


End result: so simple yet so good! Sorry I don't know the restaurant & dish names. This was over a year ago & my Chinese sucks =_=




MOS Burger > McDonalds


Sweet potatoes coated with a thick layer of hard candy & sesame seeds. OMG amazing!


Kind of the same thing but with cherry tomatoes. Those black things are bits of dried plum...not ants lol!




Unagiii!! (That was a Friends reference. If you didn't get it, you're lame-o...or too young >.>)



I always doubt the extremely sketch & semi-sanitary food spots in Taiwan. My uncle always loves to drag me to weird hole in the wall places & I always protest. But...the food always ends up being amazing. Don't be so quick to judge a dingy place LOL
This place had amazing food...and I didn't get food poisoning. Win!


Made to order green onion pancakes with egg.


Most creative menu ever.


All you can eat bbq? Yes, please!!


Hotels in Taipei have the most amazing buffets ever. This was the most amazing hotel I've ever been to.





I even saw MBLAQ, a kpop boy band, arriving as I was leaving. Hahaha the fangirls had signs just like in the dramas. I saw the Wonder Girls too but didn't get pictures.

Apparently 2PM was there that day too but I missed them T_T


I didn't know who they were at the time and the kind fangirl holding up a sign next to me tried to explain to me in English "Korean group. Very famous!" LOL


Desserts
Dessert in Taiwan is a must. I think I ate dessert like 3 times a day. Sometimes I ate cake for breakfast XD



Bubble tea here costs ~ $1.50US and it tastes WAYYYY better. This one was passion fruit. It even had real passion fruit bits in it. I WANT ONE NOW!!



Shaved ice is a must! Especially in the hot humid summer months. But I get it anyway if I go during wintertime lol




And beer there is like water. I've never had so much beer in my life.




Do you guys eat as much as I do when on vacation??

Sorry this is so long!

  4. I literally laughed out loud when I read 'when you're travelling, foreign money just doesn't seem like money'. LOL - that's exactly how I feel!

    What hotel did you stay at? It is amazingly beautiful!

  18. Yeah, I'm pretty piggie when I'm on vacay! I mean, what's the point if you aren't right? XP I hope you are having fun in Montreal! I need to book me a flight to Taipei. Every item you've posted here looks so YUMMY! My mom came back from there once with these crazy good pineapple cakes. I was like "I WANT MORE!" afterwards. Hahaha!

  19. You are tortouring me, bad..bad!!! We have those tropical fruits back in Thailand too. There are two main activities I do when I go visit my family in Bangkok: shop and eat! Asia is definitely a destination for all things yummy 24 hours. I appreciate that more now since I live in the States where you can't just walk 10 steps outside your house and find food stalls.. Gosh I can't wait to go back.

  20. I.LOVE.FOOD. So that's why I loved this post. Yes, it made me hungry and wanted to devour everything but i really love pics of what people eat. Strange, but true. Thanks so much for the post!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Oh I am super jealous and hungry right now. All that food looks so good. I love chinese desserts. It's never super sweet so you can eat eat so much of it and not feel bad lol. Not that it's any healthier but I just don't feel as gross afterwards. Oh are you having a good time in Montreal? Hitting up Toronto while you're visiting Canada?

  22. All the food looks so yummy. I love Passion fruit and Guava; they are really popular in Mexico as well. The sweet potatoes loos soo good!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Ahhh, that's a custard apple! Yummy right? I hate the seeds though... OMG, I need FOOOOOOOD! Shouldn't have clicked on this post *boohoo*

    How lucky of you to see MBLAQ and Wonder Girls! Last year, I wouldn't know who they are too except for 2PM hahaha~

  26. Omg where do I even begin?! Firstly....Im a lil embarrassed to say I think I recognize which Kpop group that is LOL BUT only because my younger sister was a hugeeee fan for a while and thus I am familiar with some groups but not all and mainly boy bands lol

    I eat just as much as you do on vacation and I must say Asia kills Canada in the food department! Not only because it's insanely delicious but it's soooo convenient and CHEAP as well yet most people in Asia are still fit and slim. Do you think it has anything to do with portion size? I can't wait to go back to Hongkong and get me some good eats! Though don't get me wrong, there's tons of great food in Vancouver too! ( but it's hella cheaper in asia! lol)

  27. This post made me so hungry! I love this post. Food porn = awesomeness. I love food in Asia! It's affordable and 10x better than the states. I remember going to a food court in Korea and being floored by the quality. Hell, the little food kiosks are 10x better than some of the nasty food I've seen in the states. Also my boyfriend studied abroad in Hong Kong and he went on and on about how good and affordable food in Hong Kong was. I'm jealous <3

  28. OMG I just died from the amount of yummy food pictured here. The shaved ice looks sooooo good and so much better than the ones sold here. The place by campus has "shaved ice" but it's crushed ice. T_T

    My Taiwanese friend say you can get rally well there for a lot less than in the U.S. Aw too bad you missed 2pm.

    Wow that is one awesome hotel. Their buffet set up is so swanky!

  30. zomg yummeh! I do eat a lot when I travel in Asia, but not so much in Europe. The food culture in Asia is so much better!

    haha in Malaysia, we have lots of food stalls or what we call hawker centres which are usually by the roadside and I guess many people will find it a bit unsanitary, but I think cos it's our culture, we're used to it. It's how I got a stomache of steel hehe

  31. waaaa i just died reading this post, and I just watched a tw show this morning about their amazing desserts too. Ah I miss tw, especially the food! Your post just took me on a visual tour to fill my stomach :D

    ReplyDelete
  32. Oh my gosh! Your food porn is amazing. It definitely makes me want to go to Taiwan now! It's also helping me think of some ideas of what to make for dinner. I'm definitely jealous of your cultural experience
