Taiwanese Snacks

Ever since I started watching the taiwanese variety shows (mostly by jacky wu), I have a very strong interest in the taiwanese food that were introduced. So off i went to Taiwan last year with Mrs Tibet for a taste in the GREAT food i've longed for.



Fried Mushrooms

Imagine how much i LOVE these mushrooms that I guessed I ate at least 4 packs of it within our 4 days in Taipei. You may choose the assorted mushrooms or just the golden straw mushrooms which totally captivated my heart!

Ai Yu Ice

This is the famous Ai Yu at Shilin market. It tastes exactly like our Ice Jelly in Singapore, therefore, it is not exactly a "MUST-TRY".

Ice Kachang (The Taiwan Version)



See that BIG portion of ICE kachang there? In taiwan you get to choose the ingredients you want in your bowl of ice, unlike singapore where one bowl is standard. But anyway, Im not a kachang enthusiast, so this bowl of ice is only so-so too.

Mixed Vegetables & Rice

In Taiwan, it is common to see small cafes selling mixed-vegetables & rice in a buffet style. Each plate is charged by the weight of the food. I remember we had a similar cafe in Singapore back then. However, it has since closed down. Nevertheless, the lunchbox (shown above) is cute enough to make me want to ta bao some home. Taste wise, it is ok, acceptable.

Taiwan Vegetarian Stew

In Singapore, it is very seldom to see stalls (totally vegetarian) in the night markets. However, in Taiwan, they seem to be in almost all the night markets, which made me LOVE taiwan right away. One night, though super filled, mrs tibet and me still decided to try out the local lor mei. Great experience! Food wise... Normal~

More Fried Mushrooms~


阿妈的乌梅汤 (Plum Juice)

As we follow the guidebooks, it was said that when travelling to Danshui (淡水), the plum juice (Ah Ma's Brand) is a must try. Its the same kind that we have in Singapore. Nothing much though. However, if you are prone to gastric, you may give it a miss. I love the soury taste though.

Smelly Beancurd

This is one local snack which I Missed freaking a lot. It is not exactly smelly, and tastes PERFECT. I loved the grilled version. It also comes with vegetables. Remember to tell the stall owners that you want the vegetarian one. Judging by the fact that I ate a total of 20 pieces of Tau Kwa within 4 days has confirmed that My FAVOURITE Number 1 Taiwan snack is non other than the... SMELLY BEANCURD!

Dumpling

We chanced upon this stall in the Shilin Market while walking around and decided to try the 扣肉饭 and 水饺... im very impressed that vegetarian food is almost everywhere in Taiwan. Cheers!

Overall: Taiwan is a very Vegetarian-Friendly country which I would recommend to all vegetarian food enthusiasts to go!

Wow, I really miss the assorted mushrooms there too. I think I am your match in having the mushrooms:P Can gobble down 2 packets at one go whenever I see stall selling.
I think there is a store at Bugis Village selling just golden straw mushrooms but not assorted mushrooms.
Why is it we cannot find it in Spore? Is it bec mushrooms more expensive in Spore :P ?
Pls advise me if you know of any stalls selling assorted mushrooms in Spore. Thanks.
