On the first day one should never sit down for a meal in a restaurant. Go and get the taste of TAiwan's street food and try little bits of everything! That would make your trip very memorable. Give your taste buds a tingling sensation...sweet and sour- spicy and bitter - salty and pungent!
Here is a sweet experience for my friend and I. Just right up my alley..With the little Chinese I know I learn all about this 60 year old Tou Foo Fah business.
The granddad started off in a bicycle...the walls of this little outlet (upstairs also) are full of old time black and white photos.
Then he gratduated into a three wheeled vehicle.
This is the best tou foo fah I have ever eaten. There are several "tastes" of toufoo fah and several offerings of peanut soups too. And you can mix the two and out comes serveral varieties again. Beans go a long way!! My friend who is selective is very impressed too. Too bad we have to make space in our stomach for 1001 others.
Must have a photo taken of myself here....too good to miss the chance. I was told to put my carry pack in the front and hang on to it for dear life....I am doing right am I not? Not leaving it on the chair even when eating tou foo fah!! But later I found out from our tour guide that only 1 % of the Taiwanese are "irresponsible and up to no good"....you must be very unlucky to meet one.
